Commercial Flat Roofing with IKO Mach One for Tyne Tunnel

Initial Assessment and Preparations:

During the initial survey of this commercial flat roofing project, core samples were taken to assess the existing build-up. The examination revealed a dry underlying structure, allowing us to retain the existing insulation and waterproof covering. Our task involved stripping off all gravel and addressing any loose or blistered areas.

Installation of IKO Mach One System:

We proceeded to install the IKO Mach One single-layer system across all existing areas, complemented by IKO Goldseal for detailing such as wall upstand and box gutter detail.

Addressing Skylights with IKO Polimar System:

To address the skylights, we opted for the IKO Polimar seamless liquid system, providing enhanced waterproofing due to their circular shape.

Project Completion and Inspection:

This commercial flat roof was approximately 900 square meters and took DVC Roofing 3 weeks to complete. All our experts on this job are all fully approved IKO installers, all holding relevant training certificates.

Quality Assurance and Warranty:

This roof has now been passed off by an IKO Technical engineer and will hold a single point warranty from IKO PLC.

Mach One System Overview:

Mach One membranes are comprised of a polyester glass-fibre composite reinforcement with exceptional mechanical strength and stability. The reinforcement is coated with a high percentage SBS modified bitumen incorporating Graphite Firewall Technology and surfaced with green, black, or brown mineral granules. Mach One is a single-layer roofing system that can be mechanically fastened, ballasted, or bonded with polyurethane adhesive. The membrane may be used on either insulated or uninsulated roofs in conjunction with the other IKO Systems products.

Features and Benefits of Mach One System:

  • BBA approved (Certificate No 00/3760)
  • LPCB approved
  • Flame-free system
  • PU adhered or mechanically fixed options
  • Single layer, highly robust membrane
  • Superior puncture resistance
  • Rapid, clean and safe installation
  • SBS elastomeric bitumen coating (low temp flexibility -20°C)
  • Rapid sealing of laps

When combined with Systems S-A Vapour Control Layer and Polimar cold applied liquid detailing, Mach One forms a completely flame-free roofing system.
