Applications


  A more robust and higher performance alternative to single ply (PVC, TPO, etc.) membranes.
  A tried and tested economical roofing system using modern cold bond adhesives for safe, flame free application.
  Suitable for use as a single layer fully adhered system on insulated concrete, timber and metal decks.
  Suitable for use on new build or renovation projects.

Performance


  A minimum 50 year design life expectancy (BS 8747), available with a 25 year GOLDSHIELD guarantee.
  High melt point and low temperature flexibility ensures stability in all ambient temperatures.
  Stabilised polyester reinforcement ensures stability with no shrinkage, high tensile strength and excellent point loading characteristics.
  Indicative BRE Green Guide 2008 rating: D/C.
See the full details of the BRE Green Guide methodology.

Note - The environmental rankings are based on Life Cycle Assessments using BRE's Environmental Profiles Methodology 2008 and refer to the complete system build up including structural elements, thermal insulation, waterproofing and protection.

Roof deck


  Reinforced concrete laid in accordance with BS 8217:2005.
  Axter does not recommend the use of screeds to create falls, preferring instead the use of tapered thermal insulation. If screeds are to be specified then they should be installed in accordance with BS 6229:2003 and be allowed to dry out before laying any reinforced bitumen membrane roofing. Lytag based screeds should not be specified.

Insulation


  Suitable for laying over a range of thermal insulation options including HYTHERM PIR, HYTHERM high density EPS and mineral / rock fibre flat and tapered boards.

Surface options


  FORCE 4000 FMG is a self protected membrane available in a choice of six colours.

Installation


  Fully adhered vapour control layer.
  Thermal insulation attachment with cold applied adhesive.
  Cold bonded (RUBIOCOL) application of membrane. Laps can be sealed by cold bond (RUBIOFIX) or torched.
  Installed by accredited Axtershield Installers.
  Comprehensive long term guarantees covering product, system design and installation.
  Requires minimal routine maintenance, see Axter's recommended Maintenance Schedule.
