Single Ply Overlay Scheme To Production Area Roof
Kostal UK are a world renowned manufacturer of electronic and electromechanical components supplying most of the automotive industry with switches and control gear. They have various plants around the world and Mars were contacted to help them with some long-standing issues with their roofs at their facility in Sheffield.
The first phase of this project was particularly challenging from an access point of view due to the large amount of plant and metal gantry decking in place. The existing single ply roof was failing and the Client was experiencing several leaks internally which was affecting production. Mars were able to specify and deliver a liquid waterproofing solution that gave exceptional durability and a fantastic aesthetic finish. The single ply was cleaned and overcoated, the gutters cleaned and coated through using a PMMA liquid and all the perimeter capping joints were also sealed using a reinforced liquid solution.
Our directly employed team worked tirelessly on this one and ultimately delivered another first-rate finish that left the Client delighted and leak free.
