Bitumen, The IKO choice
Long Life Span
With a proven life of more than 35 years, bituminous roofing membranes are the most durable and safest choice for a flat roof. Existing roofs can be refurbished easily and without removing the existing roofing and, therefore, one can safely say that the life of a bituminous roof is more than 70 years.
The waterproofing of roofs is increasingly being put to the test. Roofs are the ideal extension of living and work space. Just think of houses expanding their living space with roof gardens and terraces. For professional purposes, roofs offer space for car parks, solar panels, A/C units, heat pumps and other such technical installations. High punch resistance, which is inherent in the bitumen product, combined with a two-layer application, offers unprecedented protection of the roof regardless of its designated function.
Bitumen roofs can withstand a variety of weather conditions, such as hail, snow, formation of ice and heat. Thanks to the intrinsic properties of bitumen, the membranes can be installed hassle-free in all climates and seasons.
Grey Water Recycling
Recycled rainwater can assist with numerous applications, such as the use of a toilet, washing the car or using the washing machine. Thus grey water recycling is becoming increasingly important. IKO membranes have been tested and proven to be suitable for grey water recycling.
A bitumen roof is aesthetically versatile. Whether you opt for a white, air-purifying and cooling roof or a black, elegant and designer roof, with the IKO bitumen membranes anything is possible. The installation techniques offer the client, specifier and contractor a high degree of flexibility to achieve desired results quickly and safely.
