A single ply membrane from Protan has been specified for use in a roofing development at Yorkshire’s new Strikes Garden Centre.
Klondyke Group is extending its network of William Strikes Garden Centres across Britain. The company’s standard construction practice involves the use of a steel frame topped with a vaulted roof; for the latest centre, which has been erected in Garforth, Protan’s EX-A substrate has been used to finish the roof.
Richmond Roofing was contracted to apply around 3,000 square metres of the single ply membrane in the shade lead grey.
Using the system, the company was able to create five barrels on the roof, each measuring 36 metres with an arc of 8 metres.
Protan’s EX-A substrate is an adhered system, enabling a clean aesthetic. The fleece-backed system has been designed to resist damage in adverse weather conditions; Protan claims a durability of over 30 years.
Eliminating the need for separate valley gutters, the single ply membrane also works to prevent water ingress.
