Langley Waterproofing Systems is leading the way with its new hand-applied Cold Polyurea liquid waterproofing system. For use on flat roofs, balconies and walkways, Cold Polyurea is described as a ‘quick to install, fast curing and durable’ solution.
Cold Polyurea is an advanced, wet-on-wet, fully reinforced liquid waterproofing system – and the latest addition to Langley’s range of flame-free, cold-applied liquid waterproofing systems. It is flexible and suitable for a number of applications; it can be used in both the refurbishment and newbuild sectors and is suitable for flat roofs, balconies and walkways.
Cold Polyurea is said to be one of the fastest curing systems on the market – within just three hours of being installed, the roof can withstand foot traffic, according to Langley. Its fast application means installers are on-site for less time, reducing disruption to the building and its occupants, as well as the client.
Langley’s new system is available for roofs, walkways and balconies and can be installed utilising an insulated or un-insulated system. For roof installations, Cold Polyurea includes a UV-stable sealer coat, to protect the roof from sun damage and prolong its lifespan. When installing on walkways and balconies, the sealer coat of the Cold Polyurea is UV-stable and slip-inhibiting, to improve the safety of those accessing the area.
Dean Wincott, managing director of Langley Waterproofing Systems, said: “One of the major benefits of Cold Polyurea is its versatility – with a variety of supporting products, as well as different colour options, it can be specified for a wide range of projects. Price point is also a key factor and the combination of this, including a faster curing time, allows the Cold Polyurea products to be a market leading waterproofing system.
“Here at Langley, we recognise that fast application is also a key consideration for installers, which is why Cold Polyurea can be applied and cure within just one day, depending on the size of the work area. We feel this is a real benefit within the refurbishment sector, particularly when applied to balconies and walkways to occupied dwellings. The ability to install without the use of heat or flame, also offers safe installation for those on site, as well as building occupants.”
The new Langley Cold Polyurea system is classified with a Broof(t4) fire rating, which independently tests for the external spread of fire under the Building Regulations, meaning it is unrestricted on where it can be used on a roof. It is fully BBA certified and meets NHBC Technical Standards Chapter 7.1 for roofs and balconies. Cold Polyurea also offers a long-term solution with a 25+ year life expectancy. The system is available with independent insurance backed guarantees of 20 years; an assurance that the system can withstand continued use over time.
Langley ensures that a fully bespoke specification is completed prior to the installation of the Cold Polyurea liquid roofing system, to ensure that the chosen system is carefully considered, specified and expertly installed, by one of a network of Langley Approved Contractors, for each individual project.
