When should I use a single ply detailing membrane on my flat roof?

Detailing membranes are used as an accessory to the ‘standard’ single ply flat roofing membrane, and allow for the waterproofing of complex details. They are ideal when some flexibility and stretch in the membrane is required.

Detailing is a particularly critical area of a flat roof build-up. It is no exaggeration to say that a poorly waterproofed detail could result in failure of the single ply flat roofing system. While single ply waterproofing membranes offer excellent waterproofing properties, they do not always offer the flexibility required to fit to detailing areas.

What are typical applications for a detailing membrane?

Typical applications for a detailing membrane include forming external corners, pipe details, and connecting membrane strips in gutters and coated metal upstands.
