These roofs are made for walking

The Vulkem Quick Liquid Waterproofing system delivers flat roofing that’s made for feet!

Flat roofs are the perfect multitaskers. As well as keeping rain out and heat in, when designed to deliver both sustainability and versatility – they can provide an aesthetically attractive amenity space, mechanical services, water and energy collection and more.

Regular access to the roof means that the right waterproofing system must be chosen for the job in hand. That’s where products like the good looking, durable, liquid waterproofing systems specially engineered for pedestrian traffic areas come into their own.

Exclusive to SIG Design Technology is the Vulkem® Quick Walkway and Terrace System range of fast-curing liquid waterproofing, which has been specially designed to withstand the rigours of regular footfall for areas in continuous use and where access is required, such as:

• Commercial walkways
• Apartment blocks
• Social housing
• Hotel outside dining
• Sports stadiums
• Balconies
• Terraces
• Pedestrian bridges
• Entrances and exits
• Staircases

On site, Vulkem Quick has impressive practical credentials as its high-tech formulation means that the fast curing, finished system is rapidly ready for use and you can also apply it during the winter period at very low temperatures. It’s also resistant to rain an hour after curing.
