Live hot-air welding and unique offsite roofing solutions drew specifiers and contractors to the IKO Polymeric stand at the Build Show, held in the NEC in October. IKO Polymeric’s Armourplan PVC and Spectraplan single ply roofing membranes were on show alongside its new IKO Armourdek pre-fabricated roof panel.
“As well as its environmentally friendly features, Spectraplan is a unique product offering some remarkable benefits to roofing contractors,” explains Buket Aydinlik, IKO Polymeric Marketing Manager. Welding live on the stand, IKO Polymeric’s experienced field engineers demonstrated how punctures can be repaired without a patch and problem creases easily fixed. Spectraplan can also be welded at lower temperatures for perfect detailing on corners and upstands.
“We also had a lot of interest in our new offsite-manufactured roof panel, Armourdek,” adds Buket. IKO Armourdek is a unique long-span composite panel which consists of a single ply waterproofing membrane layer, insulation board, I-joists, Oriented Strand Boards (OSB) and a Vapour Control Layer (VCL). “The panels can be manufactured up to 12mx4m which makes them perfect for fast-track installation, allowing up to 1,000m2 fitted in a day! Armourdek has excellent acoustic and insulation properties, and we had good feedback on its green credentials, with zero waste to landfill and up to 50% fewer carbon emissions in manufacturing.”
