Derbigum is key at Peacehaven
Alumasc’s Derbigum Rapido waterproofing system is a key component in the UK’s largest curved green roof – installed at the new Peacehaven Wastewater Treatment works in East Sussex.
The roof itself covers over 17,000m2 – the equivalent of 2.5 football pitches – and required over 16,000m2 of Derbigum Rapido.
The sustainable roofing solution roof helped to secure planning permission for the Peacehaven facility, following a decade of delays, by convincing planners of its ability to marry perfectly with the surrounding countryside.
The Derbigum Rapido waterproofing system was a vital element of the green roof and one of the main contributors to the success of the project. The roofing solution was developed by Alumasc and their approved contractor, Prater Ltd who installed over 16,000m2 of Derbigum Rapido over the HPS200 coated metal deck single ply structure.
Derbigum waterproofing systems combine durability with the speed and ease of installation of a single layer system. Options are available for completely flame-free, high speed spray installation (in excess of 800m2 per day) which is BBA approved and fully warranted.
