Alumasc’s VAEPLAN single ply roofing membrane protects stunning Swansea Bay development
A new Alumasc VAEPLAN single ply roofing membrane provides an effective, long-lasting roofing solution at Oyster Wharf, Mumbles, a stunning restaurant, retail and spa/gym development designed to transform and revitalise this prominent waterfront site at one of Wales’ most famous seaside destinations with the work being carried out by main contractors TRJ.
A full Alumasc warm roof system, with VAEPLAN’S proven durability qualities, makes it resistant to the Swansea Bay sea air – a key factor in the system’s selection.
Once the area/deck space had been cleaned and primed, using Alumasc Primer, Alumasc’s South Wales-based registered contractor, Span Roofing Contractors Ltd, installed the vapour barriers and PIR Insulation. They then rolled the VAEPLAN single ply roofing membrane over the insulation boards, flush with any upstands.
The membrane was mechanically fixed within the heat welded overlaps to provide added strength to the weld and increase resistance against the higher wind loads this coastal building will experience.
Area Technical Manager Richard Powell says:
“A combination of the high levels of workmanship from both TRJ and Span along with product quality have provided Oyster Wharf with a reliable, durable and long lasting roofing solution”
