Having swiftly answered these requirements, Fixfast then supplied many of the well proven FarBo roof outlets together with leaf guards to ensure the longevity of the roof areas.

Where there was a need to invisibly fix panels, Fixfast supplied the specialist Sika Tack adhesive system.

Horton Halls

Originally specified as a rivet fixing, the decision was made to change this to a powder coated self-drilling fastener, as this would eliminate the inherent problem of damage often caused by riveters denting or scratching the panels. This was particularly important on this contract as the panels are all face fixed, and therefore on constant display. Fixfast were also able to match to the special NCS colour, adding this to the already vast array of colours available.

Pondwick's Close, St Albans

The Fixfast living roof retention system has been used as part of a stunning Sky Garden green roof installation in Hertfordshire, which recently featured on Grand Designs. 175m of 100mm EdgeGuard aluminium retention angles surround the perimeter of the living roof, preserving its unique appearance, and maintaining the integrity of the gravel fire breaks.

The unusual living rooftop feature has been part of The Flower Bowl plan at the outset, with the ultimate goal to enable sheep to graze there! The roof had been designed with the sheep in mind, however, the logistics of making a roof ‘sheep-safe’ are extremely complex.
