The Lock

The Lock

Specifier: MBLC

Alwitra®'s ‘Ultimate' single ply roofing system has been specified by top Manchester architect, MBLC, for a stunning contemporary apartment building located in one of the city's most exclusive areas.

Known as "The Lock", a building clad in terracotta rain-screen and punctuated by large windows has been created to take on a square shape, with walkways, balconies and bridges major aesthetic features of the design. Specification throughout the building has been carefully considered and the very best products, designed for long life performance were insisted upon. The roof surfaces comprised zinc and alwitra®'s EVALON® to complement respective curved and flat areas.

Alwitra® licensed contractor Monoroof, working on behalf of main contractor Mowlem, was responsible for installing alwitra®'s EVALON® membrane to The Lock's roof and balcony areas. Exceptional attention to detail was required such as the installation of kick plates onto balconies to protect perimeter edges, wall cappings - and generally high standards of workmanship and a superior, quality range of products has ensured a project completed to exceptional standards.

Alwitra®'s ‘Ultimate' single ply roofing system is so versatile that it enables architects and specifiers to create innovative roofscapes and have high performance, long term waterproofing integrity guaranteed.

The alwitra® system comprises a wide portfolio of highly engineered products including fine quality flashings, edge trims, roof lights, perimeter drains and roof drains, standing seam details, a photovoltaic membrane, EVALON®-Solar and every component for extensive or intensive green roofs.

All alwitra® roofs are installed by licensed, fully trained contractors. A range of comprehensive guarantees is available offering cover for up to twenty years.
