Waterproofing of choice

Priority Schools - Spraying Integritank photo
Between 1,000m² and 2,000m² of Integritank were used at each school

Stirling Lloyd’s Integritank system has been used for the roof waterproofing for the North West phase of the Priority Schools Building Programme – a nationwide government initiative to improve schools that are in urgent need of repair.

The first phase of structural protection works was completed in March 2016, benefitting seven schools and around 4,000 school children.

Authorised contractor VolkerLaser applied the system – using between 1,000m² and 2,000m² of Integritank at each school directly to a zero falls flat concrete deck; Stirling Lloyd’s Integritank was selected largely due to the significant time savings that could be made.

Integritank can be applied on 7-day old concrete and its fast curing time, curing in 30-35 minutes – was a major factor in the waterproofing work being completed on time and enabling other trades to rapidly access the roof to undertake their phase of the work.

The use of this cold, spray-applied membrane also improved on-site health and safety with the added benefit of speedy application.

The use of Integritank as the waterproofing system meant that the schools were effectively, efficiently and quickly waterproofed. In fact the use of Integritank saved three weeks of programme time at each of the seven sites.
