Four storeys up, a building full of people, a client that wants you
straight in and straight out with minimum disruption and absolutely
no hiccups. This is an all-too-familiar story for the roofing
contractor which is why you want to be working with the safest and
most practical products you can lay your hands on.
Super-smart membranes that will keep that roof watertight for decades to come are the perfect choice.
Rhepanol fk, SIG Design & Technology’s single-ply membrane, has proved its worth time and again, with some 90 million sq m of the membrane installed worldwide over the last 50 years.
Suitable for both over-roofing and new build, Rhepanol’s success is not just down to its safety credentials but also its ease of installation.
Its unique self-sealing edge and Gripfix system means installers follow a simple and safe three-step application: roll out the membrane, remove the tape to seal the joints and roll over the seam.
There are no naked flames and installation is quick, clean and simple.
The membrane comes in various roll widths, making them easy to handle and store on the roof while working. Wider roll options can make application easier because there are fewer joints while shorter widths provide options for efficient coverage.
What’s more, SIG Design & Technology’s Pro20 spray or roller-applied liquid waterproofing, which is compatible with standard grey Rhepanol, is really useful when roofing those hard to reach areas and intricate detailing. The Pro20 top coat has been colour matched to the grey of Rhepanol so they make an excellent visual match.
With three types of Rhepanol membrane available, roofers have even greater choice to meet customer requirements for sustainable buildings.
• Rhepanol fk is a versatile single ply membrane that is perfect for new build and refurbishment, including over-roofing.
• Rhepanol hg has been developed for green roofs. It takes all the benefits of fk and customizes them for green roofs by making both the membrane and seams completely root and rhizome resistant. This prevents damage to the waterproofing under a green roof and no further protection is required. The membrane has achieved full FLL certification and can be used for intensive, extensive and landscaped green roofs.
• Rhepanol fk white has been introduced for solar panelled roofs. This membrane not only gives outstanding results on sealing, weather resistance and flexibility, but, because it’s white, it maximises solar rays back into solar panels. It is permanently resistant to UV radiation and provides an anti-slip underlay for photovoltaic systems.
And finally, liquid Rhepanol comes in a choice of copper, green and other finishes and is a great way to add colour and distinction to grey roofs. Liquid Rhepanol is painted on and becomes absorbed into the membrane to ensure the surface won’t flake.
Rhepanol roofs are backed with the SIG plc guarantee, the perfect solution for peace of mind. Membranes are designed to last for up to 40 years provided they are installed in line with good practice and receive regular routine maintenance.
All SIG Design & Technology roofing systems can only be installed by trained and licensed contractors.
