The A. Proctor Group donated Roofshield breather membrane to Dundee & Angus College to enable apprentices to work with real life materials. The Roofing Industry Alliance is heavily involved in the training and support for the roofing industry. One of the challenges that colleges face is being able to obtain proper materials for training and assessments for their apprentices, due to budgets.
Roofshield is the highest performing breathable roofing membrane on the market, and following independent testing, complies across all of the UK wind zones as defined in the new BS 5534.
The new Code of Practice introduces a single test for the measurement of the wind uplift resistance of underlays, which all testing bodies will follow to allow for greater transparency and consistency.
By directly supporting the local colleges, the A Proctor Group have supported the next generation of roofing contractors.
For any building to have an energy efficient, healthy, moisture free building envelope there is a clear need to manage the balance of Heat, Air and Moisture movement (HAMM) throughout the building’s life cycle from design, construction, completion and use.
