Single ply membrane protects Pickford Wharf against weather ingress

A 150 year-old former wharf has benefitted from the installation of Protan’s SE single ply membrane to protect it against weather ingress.

Pickford Wharf is home to £1 million apartments and offices in historic Clink Street, overlooking the replica of The Golden Hind on the River Thames. 

The building’s maintenance company, Planned Premises Management, contacted Hybrid Roofing of Basildon after weather ingress through the banks of 26 metal-clad northlights on the roof was becoming an issue.

Hybrid Roofing resolved the issue by refurbishing the northlights using Protan SE 1.2mm single ply membrane standard overlap, mechanically fixed.

Protan SE has been developed to cope with the most extreme weather conditions without detriment, certified to ≤ -30°. The membrane is hot air welded at joints and mechanically fixed to the roof. It offers a durability in excess of 30 years, with air leakage minimised in line with the latest Building Regulations.

It is also certified to deliver and potentially surpass the energy efficiency requirements laid down in Approved Document L and achieves an A+ rating under the Green Guide.

Hybrid’s managing director Terry Brooks commented: “The original plan was to use a standing seam system. The cost would have been prohibitive, let alone the logistics of trying to get sheets of metal through London, along the narrow street, and then up five storeys! 

Proposing Protan instead still met their requirements in terms of fitness for purpose, and enabled us to complete the project in a fraction of the time, with considerably less effort, as we could handle rolls of membrane more efficiently.”
