The nature of single-ply membranes allows for lightweight, safe and quick to install waterproofing systems.

The product range includes fleece backed versions for adhered systems and non-fleece backed versions for mechanical fastening. Therewith providing the specifier a versatile single-ply roofing solution for a wide range of projects types and building constructions.
PVC and FPO membranes are heat welded at the seams giving superior protection against leaks as the two sheets are fused together, which forms a complete and durable roofing membrane system. Single-ply membranes are given UV stabilisers allowing for long term use in exposed roof applications. Single-ply membranes may have polyester or glass reinforcements. PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and FPO (flexible polyolefin) share many common characteristics, neither can claim an overall superiority over the other. However, particular characteristics of each can be exploited by the specifier to enhance the specification of their single ply roofing system.
