Asbestos Roof Treatments
Asbestos is a brittle and fragile material which easily cracks and leaks.This leads to associated problems including fungus growth, and heat-loss. Triskell Asbestos Treatment will provide a waterproof finish and could extend the roof life up to 20 years. With our roof treatments you can repair your roof with the cost being from as little as 25% of the cost of a replacement roof.
GRP Roof Lights
Brett Martin’s Trilite brand of GRP is used extensively to provide natural daylight, which provides diffused light and minimises distracting shadows, so is ideal in sporting facilities, retail environments and factories. The Trilite range includes profiles to suit almost all profiled roof coverings, over 900 now available.
The Triskell Asbestos Roof Treatments has been specially developed to provide an effective and long-lasting waterproof finish for asbestos cement roofs. It can be applied to all types of asbestos roofs, extending the roof life by up to 20 years for as little as 25% of the cost of replacement.
Asbestos roofs absorb large amounts of water which in time invariably leads to a decrease in weatherproofing performance with associated problems including fungus growth, heat-loss and cracking.
The Triskell Asbestos Treatment penetrates into the roof surface to create a waterproof coating that literally becomes part of the original roof. The application of the Triskell Asbestos Treatment not only provides a cost-effective waterproofing system but also many associated benefits including improved heat-retention and a visually pleasing roof finish matching the original roof colour of introducing new colours for maximum impact.
Specification for Chemplas Triskell Pigmented System for asbestos roofs.
Wash existing asbestos roof sheets with the use of an industrial pressure washer removing all moss, lichen and dirt leaving the sheets completely clean. The water will be filtered and all moss and debris will be double bagged sealed and removed from site into a licensed asbestos skip provided by us.
All roof sheets will be checked for any splits or cracks. Sheets with minor cracks will be repaired using the Chemplas Triskell repair kit. This process will be carried out before any coating is applied. Any un-repairable roof sheets will be shown to the contract administrator once the washing process is completed and can be replaced at an extra cost with matching profile fibre cement sheets.
On completion of works the site will be carefully cleaned and all debris and waste material will be removed to licensed skips provided by us.
All work will be checked by one of our supervisors on completion and will be left to a guaranteed standard.
The Chemplas Triskell System carries a ten year manufacturer's guarantee.
Trilite continues to be the UK’s leading brand of GRP (Glass Reinforced Polyester) roof light as a result of its consistent quality, strength and high light transmission levels. Brett Martin’s Trilite brand of GRP is used extensively to provide natural daylight into a wide range of buildings.
GRP was the first plastic roof lighting material and is still a versatile, practical and cost-effective roof light choice. It provides diffused light and minimises distracting shadows, so is ideal in sporting facilities, retail environments and factories.
Brett Martin, the first company to produce GRP roof lights with extended weathering capabilities, has been manufacturing its Trilite brand of premium quality GRP sheet for almost 50 years and can now provide a choice of over 900 profiles.
With a weight of 3.05kg/m2,Trilite 3.0 sheets in typical applications are resistant to damage during construction.They are suitable on projects where there is limited or controlled access needed after construction.
Trilite 2.4 sheets have a weight of 2.44kg/m2 and are the minimum requirement to achieve Class C liner non-fragility during construction for most profiles and assemblies.They are suitable for projects that will require minimal roof access.
If Trilite 3.0 and Trilite 2.4 are used as lining panels, the roof light will become non-fragile at lining out stage.
This 1.83kg/m2 sheet is a cost-effective option but only achieves non-fragility when used in a double skin roof light with Trilite 2.4 and above.
