Leading UK liquid roofing manufacturer, Tor Coatings – in conjunction with specialist roofing contractor Roofing Consultants Ltd – has won the Liquid Applied Waterproofing category at the 2014 National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC) Roofing Awards.
The prize was awarded in recognition of an innovative roofing solution the two companies had devised for the glazed, domed roof of Leeds Corn Exchange.
The main aim of the project was to clean, prepare and repair the steel glazing bars and glass panels of the roof structure.
Retaining the dome’s aesthetics was essential. The Elastaseal system from Tor Coatings was used as a waterproofing system. As a seamless, cold liquid applied protective coating it could be applied to the glazing bars in a colour to match the previous frame, bringing the ideal solution!
The win comes just over a year after specialist contractor Capital Roofing Co. Ltd picked up their award at The Roofing Awards Annual Congress by the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC).
The annual awards ceremony celebrates the outstanding achievements of businesses within the industry, recognising all that is best across the entire roofing spectrum.
Capital Roofing – who are members of the NFRC – won the Liquid Applied Waterproofing category for refurbishment works carried out to the roof of the Birds Eye Frozen Foods plant in Lowestoft.
Capital decided upon Tor’s Elastaseal cold liquid applied roof coating system which can be applied over an existing roof membrane using brushes and rollers and, when cured, forms a seamless, breathable, waterproof barrier.
The safe, cold, liquid nature of the product meant the business could operate with the minimum amount of disruption during the installation.
The Elastaseal system will protect the Birds Eye roof from the elements for the next 25 years, meaning it won’t need further maintenance until at least 2035! A clean down and another simple application of the coating at that time will deliver a further 10 years protection.
The system is guaranteed by Tor Coatings and has been approved by the British Board of Agrément (BBA).
Capital Roofing is a member of the Tor Partners scheme – a quality assurance programme operated by Tor Coatings which ensures its products are applied correctly by trainer applicators.
