Endorsements and Accreditations
With accreditations by The Steel Construction Institute to NHBC chapter 6.10 in accordance with B S 5950 part 5, the U-Roof system has been independently assessed by structural engineers Mason Clarke Associates and has exceeded performance criteria under stringent live load test conditions.
U-Roof have developed the necessary processes and systems over a five year period and are able to offer a 50 year structural warranty for warm roof projects.
“The U-shape profile combined with unique manufacturing processes and latest CAD delivers a more efficient and economical method of roof structure procurement and supply. U-Roof have created a truly “modern method of construction” accessible to construction firms of all sizes. The benefits are extensive; the speed of assembly, health and safety, energy saving performance and minimal training requirements.”
The European operations of Tata Steel (formerly known as Corus) comprise Europe’s second largest steel producer. Tata Steel supplies a variety of innovative solutions to a broad range of markets. Their mild steel strip products are continually used in the development of the U-Roof high performance light gauge steel frame system. We only use hot dip galvanised 390 Nm Z275 grade high tensile steel.
Xtratherm manufacture rigid thermal insulation; EPS, Polyiso & Phenolic, for new build and refurbishment construction projects that deliver eco-friendly sustainable solutions. Xtratherm’s experience and expertise is in providing cost-effective, certified solutions to the construction industry for over twenty years. The comprehensive range of technology foams is supported by a suite of services for architects, contractors and self-builders. Whilst we would always suggest the application of a warm roof to minimum heating cost the system has been used successfully in many cold roof and cold frame solutions – with insulation being fit at ceiling level for house roof applications and ship lap timber or cladding application for outbuilding applications.
