Approved for use on


Flat Roofs Green Roofs Inverted Roofs Pitched Roofs Protected Roofs Roof Gardens Zero Falls Buried Roofs 

for use as a waterproofing layer on new and existing pitched, flat and zero fall roofs in:

  • inverted roof specifications using aggregate ballast on flat roofs with limited access
  • protected roof specifications using pavers or other suitable protection on flat roofs with limited or pedestrian access
  • green roof specifications (defined as extensive, lightweight systems composed typically of succulents, such as sedum, or other hardy plant species) on flat roofs with limited or pedestrian access, or pitched roofs with limited access
  • roof garden specifications (defined as intensive systems designed primarily for recreational use and requiring structural consideration to accommodate the additional weight) on flat roofs with limited or pedestrian access
  • biodiverse specifications (similar in composition to an extensive roof but designed specifically to create a habitat) on flat roofs with limited or pedestrian access, or pitched roofs with limited access

Substrate


Concrete Metal 

The system is suitable for use on concrete and metal substrates.

Durability


25 Years 

Under normal service conditions, the system will have a service life in excess of 25 years. Where the system is used in a fully protected specification and subjected to normal service conditions, it will provide an effective barrier to the transmission of liquid water and water vapour for the design life of the roof in which it is incorporated.

Installation Requirements


The system is installed by the Certificate holder’s trained operatives.

Fire Safety


The system, when used in inverted roof specifications including an inorganic covering listed in the Annex of Commission Decision 2000/553/EC, can be considered to be unrestricted under the national Building Regulations.

In the opinion of the BBA, when used in irrigated green roof or roof gardens, the system will be unrestricted under the national Building Regulations:

Northern Ireland — Regulation 36(b) If allowed to dry, the plants used may allow flame spread across the roof. This should be taken into consideration when selecting suitable plants for the roof. Appropriate planting irrigation and/or protection should be applied to ensure the overall fire-rating of the roof is not compromised.

The designation of other specifications should be confirmed by: England and Wales — test or assessment in accordance with Approved Document B, Appendix A, clause 1 / Scotland — test to conform to Mandatory Standard 2.8, clause 2.8.1(1)(2) (1) Technical Handbook (Domestic). (2) Technical Handbook (Non-Domestic). Northern Ireland — test or assessment by a UKAS-accredited laboratory, or an independent consultant with appropriate experience.
