Chelmsley Wood Shopping Centre

Exceptional long-term waterproofing integrity is easily achievable - for less than you think by overlaying with Alwitra - the world's most advanced single-ply roofing membrane.

Exceptional long-term waterproofing integrity is easily achievable - for less than you think by overlaying with Alwitra - the world's most advanced single-ply roofing membrane.

Specifiers, building owners and main contractors are in agreement, increasingly choosing to overlay failed roofs with one of Alwitra's high performance membranes - making dramatic savings when compared with replacement like for like, and alleviating the costly and time consuming stripping and removal of heavy, dirty failed roofing materials.

Such was the case with the major refurbishment of Chelmsley Wood Shopping Centre, where, as part of the £28 million regeneration of Chelmsley Wood Town Centre, construction consultancy Bucknall Austin recommended their client to re-waterproof the building by overlaying its existing failed felt roof - literally encapsulating the surface and immediately re-waterprofing it.

Alwitra's Evalon single ply membranes are proven to be compatible for the overlaying of virtually any failed roof surface - including bitumen, asphalt, spray applied membranes, asbestos and metal - helping architects, main contractors and building owners to significantly reduce costs.

Totally 100% compatible with a broad range of traditional roofing materials, Alwitra's Evalon membranes are increasingly specified as the quality, high performance choice for the refurbishment of failed roofs. The benefit? Time and money savings plus superb long-term quality waterproofing and a dramatic improvement to the overall look of the building.

Profiled sheet metal roofing is another example where, due to the rising and unpredictable cost of metal, the most cost effective way to achieve the long term waterproofing is simply to overlay it using one of Alwitra's membranes, instead of total replacement.

Alwitra's Evalon range comprises the company's flagship membrane - Evalon V, which low in volatile plasticizers, has a proven track record of excellence and has been specified for some of the world's most prestigious projects in the most demanding environments. In addition, Evalastic offers specifiers a truly "green" membrane. It is chlorine and halogen free but still promises superb long-term performance. Evalon SA gives a self adhesive alternative for roofs where heat would not be permitted and Evalon Solar is the world's first photovoltaic, energy generating single-ply membrane.

All membranes feature at the heart of the company's "Ultimate Roofing System". It includes a range of finely engineered components which, when used together, offer the most advanced single-ply roofing system in the world.

Installations can only be carried out by licensed, trained contractors. Every Alwitra roof has a life expectancy in excess of 30 years.
