and materials, mastic asphalt does not degrade and remains a reliable, low maintenance waterproofing solution throughout a building’s design life.


Application in practice


It’s always been a British holiday haven, but the county of Cornwall is not immune to floods, tidal surges and saturated ground, making it all the more critical that buildings are adequately protected. Such was the case during the construc- tion of two luxury residential developments on a sloping site in Cornwall, when the contractor required a tanking solution with long-term durability for highly effective waterproofing protection. In order to seal the reinforced concrete retaining walls and floor slab at the site overlooking the beach in Polzeath, specialist contractor Premier Mastic Asphalt used 360 m2


of mastic


asphalt to protect the building against aggressive ground conditions.

Quik Drive kicks up a gear


Simpson Strong-Tie is boosting support for the world’s most advanced collated screw system: “Quik Drive” with the appointment of a new Sales Manager. Fixings Industry veteran and now Quik Drive aficionado: Phil Chambers explains: “The Quik Drive system has been on my radar for some time, it’s not just fast, it’s really (really) simple to use. It’s great to see the lights go on in peoples mind when they give it a try, so for me it’s a thrill to join the team behind it and to spend time with people from the many different industries that can make great use of the Quik Drive system.” In addition to Phil conducting Quik Drive demonstrations throughout the UK, an all-new Quik Drive catalogue has been released this summer. The latest edition features additional Quik Drive equipment and collated screws introduced during 2017. The catalogue has also received a design revamp to make it as easy to use as the Quik Drive system itself, with better visuals and more ’how to’ guidance.

Roofshield, the unique vapour and air permeable pitched roof underlay from A. Proctor Group has been chosen as part of a new golf centre exten- sion at Carnoustie Golf Links. The new building will include a state-of-the-art golf practice and


training facility. Roofshield’s patented Spunbond Meltblown Spunbond structure allows high levels of airflow, in addition to the transport of moisture vapour, making the formation of condensation in the roof space virtually impossible. It has an extremely high degree of vapour permeability, as well as air permeability, so will still perform in conditions in which air tight alternatives will not.

extremely well, with the only challenge being the inclement winter weather and the fact the company’s mixer and materials had to be lifted in.” That wasn’t the first time his company applied mastic asphalt for tanking in the area – in fact, it has become a commonly used solution on a number of high-specifi- cation housing schemes across the region, as Shields explains. “Having installed mastic asphalt tanking in various locations all over the south west, we get a good sense of satis- faction knowing that we have provided and installed a well proven, traditional product,” he says.


Future-proofing


Flooding issues caused by heavy rain, high tides and swollen rivers will continue to require management as extreme weather across the UK becomes the norm. But with correctly-designed houses and commercial properties protected by mastic asphalt, we can ensure that flooding caused by rising water table levels is history.
