- A roof is defined as a flat roof if it has a pitch of 10 degrees or less.
- A flat roof must be strong, durable and stable throughout its lifetime. It must provide adequate protection against the elements, keeping the buildings structure and interior dry.
- Flat roofs have a reputation of failing early but improvements in strength, flexibility, ageing and weather resistance mean that, if built with care, using the correct materials, today’s high performance felts can have a life span of up to 20 years.
IKO’s range of torch-applied systems is second to none. Whether it’s oxidised bitumen, SBS or APP modified, for new build or refurbishment, there is a solution to meet every budget.
Torch-on membranes have an underside which has been pre-treated with a covering of thermofusible bitumen. This covering is then heated with a propane gas torch and the membrane is applied to the surface of the roof while the bitumen is still hot.
Our unparalleled choice of flat roof waterproofing systems is one of the reasons that IKO is the preferred partner for so many Building Merchants, specifiers, contractors, and local authorities across the Ireland and beyond.
Our extensive product portfolio is a result of significant investment in flat roofing Research & Development on a global scale. Unmatched in the industry, the IKO flat roofing range encompasses both traditional roofing systems and innovative solutions.
It is this breadth and diversity which enables us to match the perfect flat roofing product to every project, whether it is new build or refurbishment, one roof or many.
