Single ply membranes are strong, flexible sheets composed predominantly of a synthetic polymer – Polyvinyl Chloride.
PVC single ply membranes vary in thickness from 1.2mm to 2.0mm. These PVC roofing membranes are hot-air welded at joints to form continuous roof waterproofing. When combined with insulation and continuous support they form complete, durable Flat roof systems.
The application of Single Ply Roofing has unique advantages for the customer:
Rapid construction allowing early interior fit-out
Safe, flame-free construction using hot-air welding and mechanical fasteners
Cold bridging eliminated by use of thermal break fasteners meaning minimal loss of heat through the roof
Effective control of air leakage to meet new energy efficiency regulations
Minimum roof zone depth to maximise design freedom
Easy repair, modification and refurbishment
Simple detailing to suit all situations
Interfaces to other construction elements such as existing walls
Proven long-term performance in Irish weather
Waterproofing membrane that provides excellent flexibility and high tensile strenght
Various colour options with matching profiles for eaves, verges and parapets
Single Ply Pvc membrane is suitable for all new build and refurbishment applications, flat, pitched and barrel roofs.

Single-Ply Roofing FAQ’s:
What is a single-ply roofing system?
Single-ply would refer to a system that is not “layered”. Single-ply roofing is a light and cost-beneficial roofing system that is perfect for most flat roofs.
What is the difference between Single-Ply Roofing and other Commercial Roofing systems?
Unlike other traditional commercial roofing systems that are built using multiple alternated layers of fibreglass, asphalt and reinforcing fabric, Single-ply roofing presents a unique layer of roofing material over the roofing substrate.
How long until Single-Ply Roofing needs replacing?
Usually, a single-ply commercial roof with the right maintenance and care as a life expectancy of more than 20 years. Nevertheless, some factors like local weather conditions or the quality of installation may affect the roof’s life span.
Can Single-Ply Roofing be repaired?
This type of roofing can be easily repaired; for instance, a small hole can be fixed using a patch or sealant. Punctures should rapidly be repaired in order to avoid water damages.
How can single-ply roofing be installed?
Singly-ply can be installed in many ways, but the fundamentals are the same; basically, single-ply roofing sheets are placed upon the substrate layer of the roof. Those sheets can be adhered to the substrate using heat or adhesives or simply laid loosely over the substrate and weighted down with ballast. On both methods, a single unbroken sheet is created by welding the seams that cover the entire roof area. On the other hand, It can also be mechanically fastened to the substrate layer.
