IKO will showcase three new products for builders’ merchants at the NMBS Trade Exhibition on April 16 at the RICOH Arena, Coventry.
Merchant visitors will be able to see IKO’s current range of roofing shingles, IKOslate recycled lightweight slate, and its Hyload Trade DPC offer plus three new ranges on Stand 89.
The new Ruberseal EPDM Roofing System is a high quality membrane that IKO says comes with all the extra benefits installers need for installation. Ruberseal is available in 50m x 1.7m and 50m x 3.36m rolls and for domestic projects, merchants will be able to submit their customer’s roof dimensions and have membrane pre-fabricated to fit the roof size.
IKOpro Acrylic Roof Coat is a two-coat liquid waterproofing solution that is both watertight and quick to use, requiring no specialist equipment. It can be installed directly on top of existing or new plywood, or OSB/3 decks and a number of substrates, removing the risk and cost of replacing the deck.
IKO’s new Rubershield breather membranes for pitched roofs will also be on show. There are four different options, all of which meet the new wind-uplift standard BS 5534 and are BBA approved. The wind-zone classification is printed on the underlay wrapping, showing which zone each option is suitable for, and the maximum recommended batten spacings.
