A+ RATINGS FOR alkorPLAN
RENOLIT, manufacturers of Europe’s most comprehensive range of single ply waterproofing membranes, has achieved A+ ratings, in the latest BRE Green Guide, for its alkorPLAN® roofing products and A+ for its alkorPLAN® system when mechanically fastened over insulation in lightweight steel frame constructions.
“We are particularly pleased,” explains David Davis, technical manager for the alkor Waterproofing Division of RENOLIT (UK): “ that those architects, designers, developers, constructors and users of new and existing buildings who are striving to achieve the best possible environmental assessment can have complete confidence in our range of synthetic roofing materials and systems. The BRE Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) is widely recognised throughout the world as the benchmark standard for a range of building systems. For both our alkorPLAN® products to be assessed as A+, is quite an achievement!”
“Factors taken into account included all of the individual materials used in the manufacturing processes, raw energy sources and usage, water usage, waste re-cycling, packaging and a host of other factors,” continues David Davis. “Detailed confidential information was made available to the BRE by a selected group of manufacturers over a series of meetings set up by Single Ply Roofing Association (SPRA) to ensure that the latest BRE Green Guide is as up-to-date as possible. It makes comforting reading for those who are interested in the enviromental impact of a building throughout its life span.”
