Alumasc’s VAEPLAN protects stunning development

A new Alumasc VAEPLAN waterproofing membrane provides an effective, long-lasting roofing solution at Oyster Wharf, Mumbles, a stunning restaurant, retail and spa/gym development designed to transform and revitalise this prominent waterfront site at one of Wales’ most famous seaside destinations.

A full Alumasc warm roof system, with VAEPLAN’S proven durability qualities, makes it resistant to the Swansea Bay sea air – a key factor in the system’s selection.

Once the area/deck space had been cleaned and primed, using Alumasc Primer, Alumasc’s South Wales-based registered contractor, Span Roofing Contractors Ltd, installed the vapour barriers and PIR Insulation. They then rolled the VAEPLAN single ply membrane over the insulation boards, flush with any upstands.

The membrane was mechanically fixed within the heat welded overlaps to provide added strength to the weld and increase resistance against the higher wind loads this coastal building will experience.

“A combination of the high levels of workmanship and product quality have provided Oyster Wharf with a reliable, durable and long lasting roofing solution”, stated Alumasc Area Technical Manager Richard Powell.
