Elastoflex Solvent Free Liquid Waterproofing Membrane was used, offering a flame-free solution to reduce the risk of fire.

The flexible system was also able to accommodate the equipment and plant life residing on the roof of the building.

The system included Icopal’s Micoral SK self-adhesive vapour control layer, Thermazone Roofboard PIR insulation and Pyrobar self-adhesive underlay as the carrier membrane.
