TORCH-ON APPLIED BITUMEN FLAT ROOFING SYSTEMS

torch-on-membrane-installation

Torch-on membranes offer a simple, rapid application and are installed by highly skilled and trained operatives. As the bonding bitumen forms part of the core membrane itself, torch-on systems provide completely homogeneous bitumen throughout. Coating on underside of felt is activated by heat from a gas flame.

It is often used for roofs with difficult access (less equipment required compared to pour & roll). It offers an ideal solution for remedial overlays, detailing work and small area patching.
