Fire & Rescue – Girosil® on Standby for Protection

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 sheets on a number of vital community Fire and Rescue stations across the north of Scotland.

Girosil® RC was recently renamed. You can enjoy the same great results with Giromax® Roofcoat.

Problem

The PVC coated roof sheets on the Fire and Rescue stations were exhibiting age related deterioration of the factory coating.

Profiled metal roof sheets have a long service life, but neglecting maintenance guidelines will lead to costly, premature sheet failure. Over-sheeting can mean extra weight, condensation, building regulations and poor quality materials. Choosing the wrong re-coat product means regular, and expensive, re-paint and repair.

Solution

Girosil® RC was chosen to recoat the roofs, a solution which offered negligible site disruption, a speedy resolution to the problem and complete weather and corrosion resistance for decades to come.

Being a single application, fully moisture tolerant coating system, Girosil® RC was easily able to accommodate the application challenges faced by the contractor team, proving once again to be the right choice to deliver protection safely and on time.

Girosil® RC Metal

Girosil® RC is a one coat hybrid coating that encapsulates the substrate to restore long – term protection to profiled metal roof sheets.

Girosil® RC retains lasting flexibility and adhesion without cracking or peeling. It can easily accommodate sheet movement and remains UV and temperature stable. Fully moisture tolerant, it can be applied to wet surfaces and hardens to a tough elastic coating with high impact absorption and damage resistance. Being a one coat application, installation costs, site disruption and risks associated with working at height are all significantly reduced
