Advanced training coming to Banbury

GB Plastics is holding a Cromar GRP installation training day for builders and roofers at its Banbury branch on July 10.

Local builders’ merchant General Building Plastics has teamed up with building materials supplier Cromar to host a training day at its Banbury branch on Monday, July 10. Roofers and builders can learn how to install the latest in advanced glass fibre flat roofing systems.

The system, Cromar’s ProGRP, is a new advanced liquid applied glass reinforced polyester flat roof system, specifically engineered for flat roof applications in the UK.

General Building Plastics says it is a fully integrated seamless system where all the components are designed to work together and can be used on virtually all types of flat roofs up to and including vertical surfaces; for example the cheeks of a dormer or the inside face of a mansard or parapet roof.

For installers to fully understand the system and why and how it should be fitted, the company provides full training in association with its stockists and distributors.

Clare Falls, support manager at GB Plastics, explained: “The Cromar ProGRP is the most advanced system of its type. As part of our ongoing commitment to supporting roofers, building trade professionals, keen DIY-ers and all our customers who are looking to improve their flat roofing skills, we are hosting a training day at the branch on 10th July.

“This will be the second training day, and Cromar’s area trainer Scott Williams, a roofer himself, will run the session.”

GB Plastics’ Simon Tate works at the Banbury branch and took part in the last training day earlier this year, he said: “Scott’s training involved a step-by-step guide to the product to ensure anyone fitting the ProGRP understands the importance of each step in the installation to ensure it is fitted correctly so that the product will work correctly. I would highly recommend the training for local roofers and builders, so they can take full advantage of this market-leading technology and are able to install it for their customers.”

The training day costs £100 per person and once completed will enable tradespeople to offer customers a 25 year guarantee on their Cromar ProGRP roof installation.
