RESITRIX® for Architects,
Planners and Surveyors
“…MY PROJECTS ARE CONSTRUCTED FOR ETERNITY! WITH RESITRIX® I AM SURE THAT MY WORK STILL LOOKS GREAT AFTER DECADES AND MY CLIENTS ARE SATISFIED!”
1. Life Expectancy and Proven Quality
As an architect you represent the extended arm of the client. Over the proven 50 year service life of a RESITRIX® roof (SKZ study), even a possible initial extra cost for the high RESITRIX® quality demonstrably pays for itself – over the 50 years not only are economies of scale realised, but also the initial investement is armortized over the years.
This fact firstly results in planning security, particularly for the building owner. Secondly, it provides reassurance for the client and allow them to feel comfortable about their decision and investment.Not only is the complete field area of the roof permanently sealed with RESITRIX®, but also all laps, seams and details on the roof are officially certified by the independent SKZ study to be reliable sealed for at least 50 years.
This effect is further supported by the fact that RESITRIX® roofs are virtually maintenance free, thus providing yet another considerable potential saving for the client.
Roofs that are sealed for a lifetime with a permanently outstanding appearance of course, do enhance the image of a reliable and competent planner and architect.
2. Complex roof shapes
It is not necessary for the architect to get involved too much with details but rather can let their creativity run wild. RESITRIX® imposes no limits on your imaginative ideas because all details and bespoke roof shapes, creative combinations of patterns and structures and even the most demanding designs can be accomplished safely and successfully. So right from the planning stage you can enjoy all the freedom and security of knowing that the superior functionality of RESITRIX® will allow you complete freedom with regard to design and flexibility. Furthermore, RESITRIX® will ensure a very high level of system security, whether on new constructions or roof refurbishments.
3. Visually appealing for decades
RESITRIX® roofs - even after decades of exposure – still look flawless and have an outstanding outward appearance. Since the weather-exposed side of RESITRIX® is resistant to UV and weathering, the roof retains a permanent visual beauty. In actual fact, we do not distinguish between seams and the field area. For us, the complete roof becomes one homogeneous surface and this ensures a completely watertight roof. This gives confidence.
The quality and environmental management of RESITRIX® is certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001 and 14001.
RESITRIX® Waterproofing membranes are all classified with the highest property class E1, while bitumen felts - depending on the quality of the bitumen and the type of carrier – can be classified anywhere between E1 and E4.
In addition to the property classifications, two application categories, K 1 and K 2, have been introduced to meet the higher requirements for roof structures especially with regard to products with much longer service life on the roof. Thereby, for the higher K 2 category, special demands are in place. These special demands of the K2 category relate on the one hand to the waterproofing materials in general, but also to certain additional requirements regarding the structural design. All RESITRIX® waterproofing membranes meet the requirements of this elevated K 2 application category.
In addition, RESITRIX® complies fully with all national, European and International standards.
Furthermore, the study undertaken by CREM (Consultancy and Research for Environmental Management) assesses the environmental performance of RESITRIX® as positive and states that RESITRIX® is an environmentally friendly choice.
5. Ecologically safe material properties
RESITRIX® is plasticiser and chlorine free and has an extremely high chemical resistance. The environmentally oriented product development and ecologically safe application methods which are expected today from an innovative, and contemporary waterproofing membrane are entirely met by the comprehensive RESITRIX® range.
6. Special service for Architects, Surveyors and Consultants - Individual Calculations
The RESITRIX® team consists of our highly trained sales managers, technical department and application engineers, but also includes several consulting engineers dedicated entirely to the guidance and support of architects and planners. As well as property inspections, roof surveys and core sampling (for roof refurbishments), the free services offered here include personal consultations and technical advice on individual roof design issues. This includes all aspects of green roof system build-up, mechanically fixed systems, self-adhesive, ballasted and bonded roof structures, on every type of substrate. We also undertake physical calculations relating to insulation values, energy conservation regulations, wind-uplift forces and dew point analysis. Additionally, we generate bespoke CAD- drawings for roof details on individual structures, support designers with the preparation of specifications, issue drainage calculations and carry out adhesion and compatibility testing procedures, in our in-house testing laboratory in Hamburg.
