Working closely with the main contractor Galliford Try, Jack specified Garland’s flame-free Dura-Coat cold applied liquid waterproofing system. This unique MMA resin has been developed to eliminate the need for hot works or naked flame. It is the ideal waterproofing system for sensitive sites such as healthcare estates with a strict zero flame policy.
The Dura-Coat system comprises a 3 part application process of Dura-Coat Primer, Membrane and Top Coat, providing a homogenous watertight seal across the roof surface and excellent crack bridging properties if used for remedial repair projects.
The roof at Queen Mary’s consisted of a network of steel beams that supported the various coolers and plant equipment across the site. It was essential to ensure that the plant equipment was not disturbed during the works, which could cause the deactivation of the critical services they supplied to the hospital. The liquid waterproofing system, Dura-Coat, was the perfect solution for the complex roof structure as it is ideally suited for sealing the more awkward detailed areas such as upstands and ventilation points.
Garland UK’s highly skilled approved contractor, Inspire Contracts, utilised Dura-Coat’s rapid curing time of as little as 30 minutes to deliver a high-quality installation. With a series of extendable rollers, the cold-applied liquid waterproofing system was applied evenly underneath the active plant equipment efficiently, ensuring no disruption to the hospital’s daily operation.
