Single ply is an extremely versatile waterproofing solution and has been one of the most popular roof specification options for almost half a century. They provide exceptional freedom of choice in roof design and appearance and are well suited to both new build construction and roof refurbishment projects. With a long track record of successful waterproofing all across Europe, single ply systems offer rapid installation, flexibility and long-lasting protection from the elements. Many modern single ply membranes also offer excellent environmental credentials and Green Guide ratings.
Single ply membranes are strong, flexible sheets composed predominantly of synthetic polymer. Some products are homogeneous, whilst others are reinforced with glass fibre or polyester, depending upon the application. Single ply membranes are typically around 1.1mm to 2mm thick and are sealed at joints to form continuous waterproofing. When combined with insulation and continuous support they form complete, durable roof systems.
