Single ply is a high-tech system designed for roofing and cladding applications. It has been on the market in various forms for about 70 years and is used widely in Europe.
Single ply technology offers maximum freedom of choice in roof design, performance and appearance.
Single ply membranes are strong, flexible sheets composed predominantly of synthetic polymers. They are sealed at joints to form a continuous waterproofing layer. It is used as the waterproofing component in modern green roof systems.
Single ply can be an eco-friendly product, and while all of the membranes do have very positive ecological attributes, they are mostly oil based and therefore have a large amount of embodied energy. The Better Roofing Company is a staunch advocate of this technology as it consistently out performs other flat roofing systems in terms of breathability, flexibility, insulation, UV resistance and longevity. We are actively encouraging the membrane manufacturers to develop materials that meet the performance levels of their existing products whilst having a smaller carbon footprint and less embodied energy.
The Better Roofing Company's expert technicians are fully qualified to install membranes from the following manufacturers.
