Case Study

ENDLESS REFURBISHMENT BY GIROSIL

PROJECT SUMMARY

 

As part of their ongoing long term maintenance commitment, GIROSIL® has once again been specified and used to secure the long term performance of the roof sheet end laps at the large ASDA Distribution facility in Washington Tyne & Wear. Tasked with providing a long term repair to previously treated leaking end laps, fully moisture tolerant coating system, GIROSIL® EDGE RC-E was easily able to accommodate the challenges presented by this difficult to treat metal roof detail.

Cut Edge Corrosion

PROBLEM

Cut Edge Corrosion

A combination of on-site cutting, poor installation techniques, acid rain and pollution retention in critical roof overlaps and gutter overhangs, the resultant corrosion can play havoc with profiled steel roof sheets.

End Lap Refurbishment

GIROSIL® EDGE RC-E

GIROSIL® systems provide an effective long term solution to edge corrosion. Caused by a combination of on-site cutting, poor installation techniques, acid rain and pollution retention in critical roof overlaps and gutter overhangs, the resultant corrosion can play havoc with profiled steel roof sheets and if not treated quickly and effectively can lead eventually to partial or complete roof replacement.

GIROSIL® Edge RC-E has been specifically developed to supersede the design limitations of older silicone treatments by overcoming both dependence on moisture free corrosion control and a vulnerability to impact and abrasion damage, especially from bird attack.

Fully moisture tolerant, GIROSIL® can be applied to wet surfaces, removing application restrictions and performance limitations. GIROSIL® can easily accommodate sheet movement and remains unaffected by UV and temperature, achieving robust lap edge encapsulation by hardening to a tough elastic coat with high impact absorption and damage resistance.

Giromax oversee all installations to ensure it provides the ideal sustainable answer to all these problems helping to extend the life of roofs to preserve the value of the buildings.
