High-quality FiberTite Roofing Membranes have been specified in our projects.
St Paul’s church – Penarth – Wales 2020
Plytech UK Ltd. have supplied FiberTite Roofing to St Paul’s Church, Penarth in Wales, which was expertly installed by FiberTite Approved Roofing Contractors, TPS Roofing and Cladding.
Originally built in 1864, St Paul’s Church, Arcot Street, in Penarth was rebuilt in 1882. Now, in partnership with Vale of Glamorgan Council, the prestigious £3 million development will provide much needed affordable homes and community space for the local people.
The development includes keeping the façade of the Church, while providing a multi-purpose community hall, offices and kitchen and 14 one- and two-bedroom apartments; available to let in Spring 2020.
FiberTite Simulated Metal Roofing was specified for St Paul’s Church, Penarth, as it allows the final appearance of a metal roof without the labour and cost involved. FiberTite membrane also has superior puncture, tear and chemical resistance due to its dense fabric reinforcement, proprietary adhesive coating and unique KEE formulation for the membrane coating, boosting strength and performance.
Paul Blake, Plytech’s Business Development Manager, commented, “FiberTite’s puncture, tear and chemically-resistant KEE membrane has been well-received by contractors and specifiers, as demonstrated by the growing number of specifications we are now receiving.”
Urban Quarter – Hengrove – Bristol 2020
Located South of Bristol, Urban Quarter is the latest development to be built by KIER Living and is part of the Hengrove Park regeneration scheme.
The development offers a variety of bespoke 2, 3 & 4 bedroom homes, ideal for first-time buyers and growing families. Urban Quarter has easy access to Bristol City Centre, with Hengrove Park Leisure Centre and South Bristol Community Hospital on its doorstep.
FiberTite Roofing was specified because of its high-quality, reliable and eco-friendly roofing membrane solutions. Using the original Seaman’s Corporation DuPont Elvaloy-based KEE formulation to coat the membrane allows for maximum strength and performance. Featuring superior resistance to tears, punctures, fungus, algae, chemicals and flames, the KEE coating also offers extreme UV resistance and flexibility.
During the installation of Urban Quarter, an on-site technical representative from KIER commented, “Having discussed the design with our timber frame designer and roofing contractor on site, we decided to go with Plytech via our contractor as they had received excellent service from FiberTite and Plytech in the past.
“From experience, we knew it was a product that had proven itself previously on other schemes in a similar environment and would cope with the demands of both the building structure and geographic location. We also knew it was a product that was fully certified and could be relied upon for building performance. It was crucial to us that the product came with both the professional and business support, which has helped with building control and warranty. We needed a product that was easy to install and could perform for the required lifecycle of the building.”
Paul Blake, Business Development Manager at Plytech UK Ltd., remarked, “Plytech was faced with a variety of technical, logistical and aesthetical issues, during the development of Urban Quarter, Hengrove in the South of Bristol. Together with TPS Roofing and Cladding, KIER Living and our supply chain, we were able to overcome all issues to present this fantastic housing project. During the development, Plytech undertook Wind Load Calculations, Fixing Calculations, and provided key case studies of similar projects, in order to push the project across the line.
“FiberTite, as a product, is vastly becoming a household name and the preferred product for toughness, durability and ease of install. Matched with a catalogue of proven case studies, stretching back 30 years from across the Globe, FiberTite is the principal product for Flat Roofing Solutions in the UK Market.”
MONOPITCH ROOFS – DEVON – ROOFSMART – 2019
Roofsmart, an approved installer of FiberTite Single Ply Membranes, was presented with several challenges for this new build project. The FiberTite Single Ply Membrane was specified in place of a rolled metal roof option and by using the simulated meal (standing seam) profile, Roofsmart managed to achieve the look of a metal roof with the benefit of a cleaner finish and a quicker installation. Special profiles were designed to incorporate the solar panels on the roof and a high level of detailing was required to waterproof the specialised panel frames.
DUTCH BARN – DEVON – ROOFSMART – 2017
Plytech UK Ltd. have supplied FiberTite Roofing to the Dutch Barn, Devon, which was installed by FiberTite Approved Roofing Contractors, Roofsmart. The membrane was specified in place of a rolled metal roof option and by using the simulated metal (standing seam) profile Roofsmart managed to achieve the look of a metal roof, with the benefit of a cleaner finish and a quicker installation. Special profiles were designed for the roof edge trims – this also contributed to the overall effect.
Rittman Middle / High School, 2011
FiberTite offers a high-quality roofing membrane you can rely on, which is precisely why Rittman schools decided to use the material for their buildings. 8,500m² of FiberTite Simulated Metal Roofing was installed on the Rittman Middle / High School which has continued to exceed safety and performance expectations of staff and students alike. Not only that, the reduction in costs provoked Rittman School Board President, of Rittman Exempted Schools, Doug Stuart, remarking, “We are very impressed with the performance of the roofing materials and the cost savings.” With over a thousand students under one roof, the best roofing membrane was essential and found in FiberTite.
Spangler Candy, 1998 ongoing
Spangler Candy is the home of many of America’s favourite candies; an industry that produces a tacky exhaust in manufacturing and poses risk to many different roof types. That’s why, in 1998, Spangler decided to begin replacing the 37,000 m² roof with the FiberTite Roofing System. Since then, the facility has seen 24 different installations as it expands its use of FiberTite products, continually renovating different areas of its roofing. Gackle’s testimonial speaks loud and clear: “They provide us with material that is more resistant to rips and tears and helps us maintain a good watertight environment.”
Baldwin Wallace University, 1985
Baldwin Wallace University demonstrates FiberTite’s durability under intense weather situations. After the initial installation in 1985, the University has seen high-quality roofing performance when faced with the extremes of all four seasons. Installed on the Lou Higgins Recreational Center, a 36 mil. single-ply roofing membrane was adhered to the pre-existing deck layer and is still standing strong today.
Rubbermaid, Inc., 1984
Since 1984, Rubbermaid facilities have been utilising FiberTite Roofing Systems to ensure their buildings are completely watertight. 30 years later, every roof, installed using FiberTite materials, have passed moisture inspections by Jim Stone & Associates. Jim Stone commented: “This has outlasted every roof that I’ve been involved in.” FiberTite single ply roofing solution has a proven performance in puncture resistance, durability and moisture protection while saving performance costs; making it the best roofing membrane available.
