Roofing & Cladding

Fab-ulous solution to improve profit


A unique, state-of-the-art single ply roofing system can help deliver a better end product with a significant reduction in cost.

Studies show that Protan’s innovative prefabricated roof process can cut welding by up to 70%: on a typical 10000m2 roof: equivalent to 60 hours’ LESS labour and its associated cost. Yet the Protan prefabricated system is cost-competitive with standard single ply roof membrane, even before the latter’s welding costs are factored in.

Fraser Maitland, Protan managing director says:

“It’s a ‘no-brainer’: everyone in the building supply chain wins. The specifier has the peace of mind that as the system is fabricated in a factory, under strict controls, there is reduced risk of leakage, and our secret fix enhances aesthetics. The contractor has an easier system to install, which costs him no more in materials but saves him effort, and yields bigger profit. The building’s owner or occupier has less- or no risk- of leakage. Protan’s prefabricated system protects value for all.”

Protan’s prefabricated system uses Protan single ply membrane, which has been developed to withstand even the harshest weather conditions found in Europe, and is proven to perform for 30 years. The membrane is factory-welded to order, with Protan’s in-house Proplan software calculating the most efficient usage of material to minimise waste.. On site, all the contractor has to do is fix along the edges and abutments, and detail round penetrations etc. Protan produces a range of factory- formed detailings to further simplify the process.

The prefabricated system is one element of Protan’s comprehensive range of single ply roofing solutions, covered at www.protan.co.uk, all designed to protect value for specifier and contractor. A full support service, from NBS specification and in-house CAD design through to technical advice and variable warranty depending on specification is provided from the company’s Warrington headquarters.
