Industry:

Application:

Customer Location:

Office building, Glasgow, Scotland

 
 

Application Date:

November 2013

 
 

Application Situation:

A set of roof balconies had developed leaks, particularly around joints, seams and flashings.

 
 

Problem:

There were different substrates used for the roof & flashing, including felt and lead. There were also handrails & bolts to be removed that left gaps that had to be waterproofed. In particular, the balconies had developed ponding water,which, due to  being north facing rarely dried up.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 3131 (WG Membrane)

 

Substrate:

Felt & lead

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona System Leaflets RPA-1, RPA-6 and RPA-8.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Coating the roof rather than removing the felt substrate saved the customer time & money and provided a seamless system able to cope with the regularly ponding water.
