Smartroof have been shortlisted for ‘Best Health and Safety Product’ at the 2016 Housebuilder Product Awards.
Traditional room-in-roof construction is vulnerable to major risks caused by numerous factors including the erection of scaffolding and manual handling whilst working in confined spaces and with falling brickwork. In addition to these, there are risks involved in working at height on attic trusses or top-hats and purlins. This also means that the roof can take weeks to erect, insulate and make watertight.
The Smartroof system has been designed and developed as an offsite product to overcome the challenges faced during roof construction. This way of rethinking roof construction delivers proven benefits in terms of thermal performance, consistent quality, speed of construction and most importantly health and safety benefits onsite.
Peter Nordon, Smartroof Managing Director commented, “Site safety is a major priority for Smartroof, so we are thrilled to be shortlisted in this category. We have worked hard to develop a product that overcomes the health and safety risks associated with traditional roof construction and addresses the issues our customers face.”
The Housebuilder Product Awards recognise excellence and have become the most coveted in the industry. Winners will be announced at a gala lunch at Edgbaston Stadium on 29th June and we wish all the finalists the best of luck on the day.
