Reinforced bitumen membranes should only be applied over a continuous substrate which provides full support. Substrate Materials used to form the roof deck in flat roofs should be those listed in BS 6229:2003 Flat roofs with continuously supported coverings – Code of practice and conform to the relevant requirements in BS 8217:2005 Reinforced bitumen membranes – Code of practice.

  • Prime with a suitable bituminous primer and allow to dry
Vapour control layer HYRANGER 25/25 TS
Thermal insulation PIR insulation, thickness to meet required U-value
Waterproofing system Base layer THERMECRAN (perforated)
  Intermediate layer HYRANGER 25/25 TS

Product substitution

  • The two layers THERMECRAN and HYRANGER 25/25 TS can be replaced by a single layer of HYRANGER SPOT ADH self adhesive membrane. In this case the thermal insulation must have a coated glass fibre surface such as EL 3000 from CELOTEX or TR 27 from Kingspan.
  • HYRANGER 25/25 TS can be replaced by FORCE LINE 2 or 3 VV.
  • FORCE LINE 4.5 RE can be replaced by FORCE LINE 4 RE.
