Rooftop Apartments, Gisburn Rd, Tottenham, Passive Purple

Rooftop Apartments, Gisburn Rd, Tottenham, Passive Purple

Intelligent Membranes

We all know warm roofs and joist zones are huge areas for air leakage and extremely hard to solve this problem. This warm roof structure for luxury apartments retrofit fit onto an already existing block of apartments in Tottenham was typically the icing on the cake for detail and performance. With the hand cut roof providing the client with multiple skylights, dormers and 360-degree turrets, this was going to be no easy task of getting the airtightness and vapour control secure and correct in a traditional method. Step forward Passive Purple! Rather than just covering the issues, once the hand cut roof was finished, the 220mm roof rafters were filled with a layer of spray insulation supplied by Lapolla UK. The dormers, skylights and turrets were then given some attention to detail with Passive Purple BRUSH before the final application of Passive Purple (spray applied) This gives this roof a complete airtight vapour control with performance like no other and getting around all of them circular details and angle’s galore this was just another simpler, easier way to get the job done right and guaranteed! Passive Purple liquid application saves the client and user so much time and so much less strenuous labour.
Triple Layer vs Double Layer Polycarbonate Rooflight

Triple Layer vs Double Layer Polycarbonate Rooflight

Trade Access Panels

When selecting your new polycarbonate rooflight, the main deciding factor should be how energy efficient you need or want it to be. In this process it is important to ascertain the rooflight’s U-value. U-values measure how effective a rooflight is as an insulator. The lower the U-value the more thermally efficient your polycarbonate rooflights will be.

Intelligent Membranes

So here we have a stunning steel framed barn conversion stripped down and retrofit with a huge hybrid timber frame panel system manufactured and installed by White Haus Bespoke Timber Frame. These panels are made up of 140mm insulated timber frame, 9mm OSB sheathing with Passive Purple External and two 50mm cross battens externally, followed by feathered edge cladding. With the internal side then adding an additional 50mm PIR insulation flowing into the joist zones with one continuous layer of Passive Purple and 25mm counter battens for services. This 326mm wall build up has used both Passive Purple and Passive Purple External which meet in the window formers to guarantee the build its internal airtight vapour control and external weatherproof breather membrane. The Joints in the OSB, PIR insulation and fixings into the timber frame studwork were all prepped like always using the BRUSH versions of both Passive Purple and Passive Purple External. This fibre reinforced product allows for a tough hold and elongation on any shrinkage the insulation or timber may have with building settlement or extreme changes in climate. With only a score of 2.5ach required, Intelligent Membranes have given this wonderfully unique home the full treatment for perfect performance to keep the HVAC system running on low hassle percentage and optimal performance output.

Eagle Waterproofing Ltd

ObjectivesThe roof had reached the end of its life and needed refreshing before it deteriorated further. Much of the roof covers unheated space so no thermal upgrade (Insulation and vapour control layer) was necessary in this case.SolutionsThe existing felt was generally well adhered so with some preparation work the contractor planned to apply Ultraflex directly over the felt and finish with Ultratop.All loose mineral on the existing roof was swept away and the roof was cleared of debris. The roof was then cleaned using a jet wash and allowed to dry. All defects in the existing roof were repaired to a standard which could accept the liquid coating. Cracks were sealed with Ultraflex PU mastic and any bubbles in the felt were cut and stuck back down with a torch.Ultraflex was applied directly over the prepared felt, fully reinforced with 225GSM matting at a rate of 1.5Kg/M2. Once cured the roof was inspected for defects and a final coat of Ultratop was applied to finish.BenefitsThis roof now benefits from a 20 year guarantee backed by Eagle Waterproofing giving the customer peace of mind for the foreseeable future. The roof was refreshed and finished to a very high standard in a relatively short space of time. As a result, disruption to the business was minimal and works were far more cost effective than they would have been had the roof been replaced entirely.Project informationConstructionFactory RoofProducts UsedUltraflexUltratopUltraflex PU MasticUltraflex MattingConstructorRichmond RoofingSupplierRinus Roofing, Leeds“The system was very easy to use, the convenience of local stockists with available product and the competitively priced system meant Ultraflex was a good fit for this refurbishment scheme.”Mark Cooling, Richmond Roofing
