PVC-UE external cladding is one of the fastest growing external building products. Its versatility means it can be used on a huge variety of projects, from new build housing developments or an exterior finish for a new extension, through to all areas of renovation from single wall features to an attractive look for a loft conversion. Cladding is one of the quickest and simplest ways of creating kerbside appeal by adding definition and interest to a property and when used for renovation, can totally transform the look of any home.

Louise Sanderson UK Marketing Manager explained “Our cladding portfolio has grown over time and we wanted to bring the full range together into one brochure. It will allow our suppliers to promote the different options to clients, to showcase the versatility of cladding and extend the visibility of our products” The new brochure will also appeal to homeowners as it showcases the full cladding range allowing buyers to compare and contrast with other products, and see the wide choice of colour and finish options. Also featuring the benefits of pvc, with its low maintenance, easy fit credentials and highlighting how PVC-U cladding can help improve the energy efficiency of a home when fitted with insulation, the new brochure helps homeowners make an informed choice. Colin St John, Commercial Director summarised “We are really pleased with this new brochure. Our cladding is one our fastest growing product lines and providing this literature will give our customers the ideal opportunity to capitalise on this interest.

Roofshield® chosen for multi-million pound transport hub

15/05/2019 16:05:48

Roofshield, the unique vapour and air permeable pitched roof underlay has been chosen for a multi-million-pound project set to transform the transport links across Northern Ireland. The North West Transport Hub is an impressive £27 million redevelopment of the Waterside train station in Derry to create a multimodal transport facility, which includes a brand new train terminus, bus stands, park-and-ride facility, passenger waiting area, retail units and community space. The new hub will provide for up to 1100 new local and cross border bus and connecting rail services. Translink commissioned Farrans Construction to manage the project alongside railway engineers Rhomberg Sersa JV. Specialist roofing contractors D. Harkin & Co. Roofing of Derry was appointed to carry out all roofing works and selected the Roofshield membrane from the A. Proctor Group to ensure the highest level of protection. Danny Harkin, Managing Director of D. Harkin & Co, explains the reasons for the selection of Roofshield. “We chose Roofshield because of its superior air permeability, which removes the need for any additional ventilation and assures comprehensive protection for the new hub facility.”

Many vapour and air permeable underlays use an airtight VP film layer to achieve their performance, whilst Roofshield’s patented SMS (Spunbond Meltblown Spunbond) structure allows high levels of airflow, in addition to the transport of moisture vapour, making the formation of condensation in the roof space virtually impossible.

The use of Roofshield can lead to savings in labour and material costs, due to no VCL being required, and its highperformance air permeability means that the roof space has similar air changes to that of a roof using traditional eaves/ridge ventilation.
