Mechanically Fixed - Lap Fastended

Overview

The Fatra mechanically fixed lap fastened system provides sustainability and cost efficiency due to the versatility of the system. The lap fastened system is generally quicker to install and reduces both material and labour cost depending on the application. 

The Fatra lap fastened system can be implemented on most areas from the basement to the roof. Depending on the application, area of use and Fatra wind load calculation reports provided by Fatra, the lap fastened system can be installed using either 1m wide rolls to remove the requirement of intimidate fixings through the field sheet which will reduce material and labor costs or 2m wide rolls which will reduce the amount of hot air fusion welding to the conjoining laps. All joints, laps and terminations are hot air fusion welded creating a permanent and physical bond and does not rely on adhesives, sealants or tapes to create a waterproofed joint.

Consultation with a Fatra technical representative is advisable when looking to implement a lap fastened system. Fatra can provide guidance on design and implementation to best suit each individual project and achieve site specific objects. Full specifications are provided for all Fatra projects.

Mechanically Fixed - Cool Roof

Overview

The Fatra insulated cool roof system has been specifically engineered by Fatra to create a non-penetrative mechanically fixed cool roof system. This system provides the client with superior thermal efficiency, reduced installation programmes, reduced material costs and can reduce air conditioning costs by up to 25% per annum and improve the overall thermal rating by up to 20% due to minimising the amount of thermal bridges when installing the insulation to the underside of the roof slab. All joints, laps and terminations are hot air fusion welded creating a permanent and physical bond and does not rely on adhesives sealants or tapes to create a waterproofed joint.

Unlike traditional cool roof systems where the membrane is installed below the installation and then requiring a ballast to weight the insulation down, the Fatra cool roof system removes the requirement for the pebble ballast which completely obscures the membrane making any rectification extensive and very costly not to mention adding a substantial amount of additional and unnecessary weight to the structure itself. 

Fatra will provide a condensation report for all potential cool roof projects along with a wind load calculation report which dictates the fixing patterns available and a full specification outlining which build up will achieve your project objectives and provide the most sustainable and energy efficient waterproofed system.

Mechanically Fixed - Structural Steel Deck

Overview

The Fatra structural steel deck system implements a structural steel deck fixed to purlins with a vapour control layer, FatraTherm insulation and Fatrafol 810v nylon reinforced PVC sheet membrane. Numerous steel decks are available to suit site specific requirements such as purlin spans & design loads.

The structural steel deck built up system provides a far more sustainable and cost effective solution to traditional roofing systems. Where traditional insulated metal roof systems relies on sealants to the joints and rivets, the Fatrafol system is completely hot air fusion welded and does not rely on sealants to protect the roof from water ingress. 

Fully integrated PVC coated box gutters can be incorporated into the system to create a complete roofing system. Unlike traditional box gutters which are riveted and sealed using silicon or polyurethane, the Fatra box gutters are jointed and strapped with PVC membrane which is designed to withstand the structural movement of the gutters without premature failures at the joints, stop ends and rainwater outlets.

Once the Fatra Structural steel deck system is at the end of its service life, the PVC membrane can simply be refurbished installing a second layer of Fatrafol PVC membrane which removes the requirement to completely remove the roof and replace like traditional metal roofs resulting in drastically reduced refurbishment costs and downtime to working operations.

Fully Adhered - New Build & Refurbishment

Overview

The Fatra new build & refurbishment system provides a fully adhered system which is bonded directly to various substrates using the Fatrabond moisture curing polyurethane adhesive.

The Fatrafol 807v PVC sheet membrane is unaffected by substrate moisture and inclement weather conditions during installation, unlike liquid applied membranes which can delaminate & defect prematurely.  All joints, laps and terminations are hot air fusion welded creating a permanent and physical bond and does not rely on adhesives sealants or tapes to create a waterproofed joint.

The fully adhered system improves drainage to the rainwater outlets, improved aesthetics due to not being exposed to certain amount of wind flutter and also reduces disruption to the client.

The fully adhered system provides the client with a number of overlaying finishes such as screed and tiles, synthetic grass, ballasted using timber decking, adjustable chairs and pavers and creating a standing seam replicate roof which gives the aesthetics of metal roof with the performance of a PVC membrane and a cost effective twist

Fully Adhered - Bitumen Refurbishment

Overview

The Fatra PVC membrane bitumen refurbishment system gives the client an option to remediate or refurbish the existing failed bitumen membrane without having to pay extensive removal costs.

The Fatra PVC Membrane bitumen refurbishment system is fully adhered directly over the existing bitumen membrane using the Fatrabond moisture curing polyurethane adhesive. All joints, laps and terminations are hot air fusion welded creating a permanent and physical bond and does not rely on adhesives sealants or tapes to create a waterproofed joint.

Taking away the requirement to remove the existing bitumen membrane not only reduces cost and programming it also reduces the risk of the structure being exposed during the removal process which could result in water ingress should there be inclement weather during the removal process.

Fatra understand that access and loading of materials can be quite difficult when working in live environments which is why the Fatrafol 807 is manufactured in smaller rolls to make the membrane easy to handle.

Below Ground System

Overview

Fatra PVC Membrane Waterproofing Sydney Australia Concrete Timber New Build Remedial Refurbishment Basement Retaining Wall Tank
The Fatra PVC Membrane  basement system provides our clients with a cost effective and versatile waterproofing solution for their basements, tunnels, retaining walls and other below ground areas. 

The Fatrafol 803 has been designed to withstand aggressive pressure and seeping water and creates a radon barrier. It is also made with a black scrim and yellow top layer to enable applicators to easily identify any punctures in the membrane. Once the yellow top layer is breached the black scrim shows through making any defects easy to spot and patch repair prior to laying the concrete slab or any overlaying finishes. The Fatrafol 803 is resistant to aggressive water pressure and creates a radon barrier to prevent the natural gases that are generated below ground entering the foundations.

The Fatrafol basement system is completely hot air fusion welded which doesn’t rely on tapes or sealants to prevent water ingress. The membrane can be mechanically fixed or bonded using the relevant Fatrabond contact adhesive and can be installed over almost any substrate, pile walls, lift pits and the like with minimal preparation and does not require any priming to enable the system to operate efficiently.
