Our friends at FDT who manufacture Rhepanol single ply roofing membrane have produced a set of single ply roofing installation videos. These videos are an excellent introduction to how the product is installed and will give you a useful insight into both the process and the appearance of the finished roof, joints and details.
What is Rhepanol Single Ply Roofing Membrane?
Rhepanol PIB is made from polyisobutylene (PIB), a synthetic rubber, and is the only membrane currently available with a full Life Cycle Assessment that meets DIN EN ISO 14040 part ff, showing that it has no significant environmental impact at any time between its manufacturer and eventual disposal. Rhepanol is available in two types; Rhepanol fk, with either self-sealing edge and gripfix system or its weldable cousin, and Rhepanol hg, version suitable for green roof applications.
More information about the Rhepanol single ply roofing systems including details, document downloads and BIM objects are available here.
