Newchurch Primary School

The roof on the school building had come to the end of its life so Complete Roofing Systems was contracted to install a new felt roof.

The client wanted a more robust covering, which would be fully insulated to help conserve energy and meet Part L of the Building Regulations. A Reinforced Bituminous Membrane (RBM) system from Lancastria Waterproofing was therefore specified as the most appropriate material.

Workmanship

The timber deck had to be stripped back before the new built-up felt covering could be installed. RBM has traditionally been fixed using gas torches, which can pose a fire risk, so the team followed the NFRC’s Safe2Torch guidelines, using adhesives and hot air torches.

System

  • Endura (Two-layer system made from high quality distilled bitumen)
  • Endura FR mineral cap sheet (Fire-rated to meet BroofT4 fire regulations)
  • System 20 (Vapour Control Layer and underlay on details)
