Located near the airport in Vilnius, Lithuania, IKEA has a mammoth store – and a message for new arrivals to the city. The words “Welcome to IKEA” are emblazoned across the rooftop in a polyester scrim reinforced waterproofing membrane.
The IKEA rooftop in Vilnius uses a PVC roofing membrane system. It’s a little different to the one we used at IKEA Tempe. Roofing membrane systems consist of multiple layers or parts that seamlessly work to prevent water ingress to the property. These include the roof insulation, waterproofing membrane, flashing and accessories.
New to Australia is a reverse roofing membrane system. It differs from traditional systems by positioning the installation beneath a reflective roof membrane.
We use various types of membranes with this system, including single-ply, modified bitumen and PVC from brands including Fatra, Soprema and Sika Australia.
Quality roofing membrane systems are often environmentally friendly and energy efficient. As with all of our waterproofing projects, the Danrae team will first assess your site and recommend the most suitable membrane for the property and environment.
New from leading brand Suko is a re-injectable hose that’s ideal for sealing construction and connection joints in concrete structures.
With SikaFuko® VT-2, we can inject materials such as acrylate and cement suspensions for multiple applications, or polyurethane and epoxy resins for single injection.
The products work for various types of structures and construction methods and are particularly suited to those that need additional joint security and safety, such as tunnels, retaining walls and dams.
With the ability to reinject membrane into a crack or damaged section, we’re able to provide a fast, quality fix before the issue escalates. Finding the issue in time is crucial, which is why this works most effectively with our preventative maintenance plans.
The construction sector is continually looking for more sustainable solutions, and this is one of our favourites.
Waterproofing cork spray is a relatively new technology that is essentially a spray-on waterproofing membrane. Cork is a natural fire retardant with impressive thermal conductivity, making it a smart, energy-efficient waterproofing choice.
Cracked or crumbling planter boxes can play havoc with rooftop or balcony waterproofing, so it’s essential to have a robust waterproofing solution that takes into account potential damage from spreading roots.
Ardex Root Repell™ is a great product that has a plant root repellent impregnated within the membrane. It works to repel roots away from the membrane without killing them. It helps protect plants and preserve the structural integrity of the planter box.
Danrae Group has been providing expert waterproofing for decades, and one reason we remain a leader is that we keep abreast of new waterproofing technology and developments across the industry.
