The client was looking for a robust system that would protect the floor below and was looking for a hard wearing surface which was waterproof The product had to be durable, strong and flexible enough to handle some movement within todays modern structures.


As the project would be staged to allow construction to progress the upstand details were all carried out first to allow cladding to be installed and Gib Boarding to be carried out.

Asphaltech and their qualified tradesmen worked on this project with limited space and movement during the later stages of the construction project.

A complete QA package was handed over to the client at the end of the project showing sign off sheets and pictures during construction.
