Turner Access refurbishment and insulation upgrade project

Posted on

Completed 2017

Installing Contractor Topek

Roof Area  3,000m2

Products Used Bitumen Paralon Total Warm Roof System, Enkopur cold-applied liquid; Moy Rooflights

Moy were asked by the Project Architect to survey this mixed-use unit in Glasgow with a view to advising on refurbishment and insulation upgrade solutions required to provide long-term waterproofing protection over the client’s asset. The roof coverings had reached the end of their serviceable life and the roof-lights no longer complied with Building Standards, offering poor light transfer into the space beneath.

Our Bitumen Paralon Total Warm Roof System was installed over the existing roof, minimising disruption to the busy space below. New Paratherm PIR insulation was incorporated in the design to insulate the rooftop to current standards and new polycarbonate roof-lights were installed. Our Enkopur cold-applied liquid waterproofing system was installed around difficult plant leg penetrations, negating the requirement to use hot works near vulnerable zones. All backed by a 25 year single point warranty.

Withington Golf Club MOY Liquid system

Roof area: 60 meters
Installing contractor: R.L Lovatt
Completed: June 2020

Our long-established range of MOY Paralon, Paraflex and Eurogum modified bitumen membranes, coupled with our highly efficient insulants, offer robust waterproofing solutions

MOY were asked by our approved partner contractor R.L.Lovatt to specify a fit for purpose waterproofing solution for the refurbishment of the balcony at a Golf Club in Manchester. MOY specified to overlay the existing Asphalt waterproofing layer with our Enkopur waterproofing system, a single-component, cold liquid-applied polyurethane based roof waterproofing membrane with a polyester fleece reinforcement which has been tested and certified by the British Board of Agrément to have a life expectancy of at least 25 years.

As this roof is an accessible balcony MOY also specified our single-component Enketop balcony and terrace coating to protect the Enkopur waterproofing system beneath and provide a long lasting, optically attractive finish which is UV-resistant, chemically resistant and easy to clean. This robust specification gave the client peace of mind as a MOY single point, workmanship and materials guarantee of up to 20 years was provided. Products: Enkopur and Enkotop

Justice & Reform Sector: Hot Melt using MOY Paro-Melt

Posted on

 

System: ParoMelt® Hot Applied Liquid

Roofing area: 4000m2

Installer: Deanes Roofing

MOY Hot Melt system called Paro-melt is a robust, watertight, approved, warranted system with a long term lifecycle of up to 30 years.

We, at MOY, were delighted to have been asked to specify and support the installation programme for the £253m redevelop a Justice & Reform centre. An exciting project to be involved with we worked closely with Kier Construction Company and the Ministry of Justice throughout the construction. A key element of our services is to provide management, site reviews and project oversee throughout the building phase, completion and beyond.

The project is anticipated to provide more than 850 jobs for local residents and deliver an anticipated £80m boost to the economy. The prison is part of the Government’s Prison Estate Transformation Programme, which is reforming the country’s prison estate to ensure conditions are suitable for rehabilitation of offenders and to reduce crowding.

We specified a fit for purpose waterproofing solution for the development namely our new 2nd generation Hot Melt system – Paro-Melt®, which was advantageous for its system benefits but also cost/labour reductions and speed of installation. The polymer modified bitumen compound used with a robust SBS protection membrane gives a tough monolithic but flexible roof system.

Full immersion of our MOY distinctive blue reinforcement mesh ensures enough compound is being installed. Designed primarily for use over concrete in inverted roof applications such as podium decks, green roofs, car parks, terraces and balconies. The full Paro-Melt® system includes a wide range of inverted thermal insulations, water reduction layers and other accessories.

The robust specification gave the client peace of mind as a MOY single point, materials & workmanship guarantee of 30 years was provided.

ROOF SURVEYING

Looking to get a roofing survey, worried about a leak or heat loss? Contact MOY Roof Waterproofing System Specialists, we can help. At Moy Materials, we pride ourselves in the fact that we are more than just suppliers. Each member of our technical team is highly experienced in the field of waterproofing. As part of our suite of services we can conduct detailed Roof Surveys and Testing using the latest technology.

Surveys can be requested to determine the condition of a particular roof that has had damage or lack of maintenance or in some instances a failed roof installation or product. When conducting a survey, a member of the MOY Technical Services division will visit the roof and visually assess the roof area and complete a report which aims to identify the current conditions of the roof and offer some recommendations with regard to possible repairs, overlay or perhaps replacement if required.

Electronic integrity testing is often a condition of contract for many new roofs being installed.  For older roofs, this form of testing can be used to pinpoint problems.  MOY use a spark-tester to identify pinholes in all membrane types and non-metallic roof coverings such as single ply, built up felt systems or asphalt.

We can where required utilise our thermal imaging equipment to give a visual representation of the condition of the roof and its components.  This level of thermographic detail in addition to moisture readings and core testing for example, can be vital when determining what course of action might be needed.  Moy Materials have two thermographers as part of the technical services team who are qualified to use the equipment and interpret the data obtained on site.  Our experienced team will assess your roof, conduct a spark test, identify areas in need of attention and submit with a detailed written report.
