challenge, Protech Roofing and Sarnafil Plus delivered an exemplary solution, which allowed the market to remain open throughout. Europe’s largest covered market, Kirkgate

has 800 stalls attracting over 100,000 visitors a week. As part of a £14m refurbishment to improve the market for the stallholders and the public, the leaking roof, extending over both the 1976 and 1981 halls, needed renewing while the building was fully operational. The original design specification called for

the existing felt waterproofing to be removed back to the metal decking. However, this would cause massive disruption and with no guarantee of a watertight building. To combat this issue, Protech recommended a mechanically fastened Sarnafil system that could be overlayed onto the existing substrate. A full Sarnafil Plus survey and moisture mapping revealed the worst areas for water

Labour and time on site can be reduced by weeks by getting someone else to do much of the work- for the same material cost. Protan is now able to supply rolls of material ready welded, in its state-of-the art factory. It is the only single ply

membrane manufacturer offering the capability to UK roofing contractors. Yet the prefabricated system is cost-competitive with ‘standard’ membrane material, which still has to have on-site welding factored into the cost. Studies show that Protan’s innovative prefabricated roof process can cut welding by up to 70 per cent.

chamfered side edges, Saxon 10 Slates mimic quarried slate but have features that only machine-made tiles can deliver, such as single nail fixing and no requirement for eaves or top slates. Two vibrant colours are available: a Black that matches the black-grey slate of Scotland; and Blue, which is based on the blue-grey slate quarried in Snowdon.

less steel fixings created a durable, weather- tight and aesthetically pleasing finish. Sarnafil membranes are certified by the British Board of Agrement to have a service life in excess of 40 years, giving the client confidence in the durability and longevity of the roof. A further feature of Sarnafil roofing

systems that appealed to the client was that the Sarnafil S327-15EL Light Grey membrane is cold applied – welde together using hot air rather than with a naked flame. The system can be used without restrictions as it meets the fire performance requirements of BS476-Part 3:2004 and BS EN 13501-5:2005. Six rooflights over 51m long were replaced

with SarnaLites, situated close together in rows, making sure that the market continued to benefit from natural daylight. This part of the refurbishment was carried out at night to limit any disruption to the market below. Sarnafil Plus visited the site regularly and

a successful final inspection resulting in the issuing of a Sarnafil Plus guarantee.
