Protec System Anti-Slip Finishes
185 System Anti-Slip Finishes
- Timber decking, slabs or tiles should ideally be loose laid.
- Timber bearers used with timber decking should not restrict flow of rainwater from the roof.
- If using the 185, system pre-formed Polyroof GRP reverse right angle trims may be used in lieu of fillet trims where necessary.
Polyroof’s Protec System can be specified as part of a podium roof design, or a “buried membrane” application. There are two types of podium roofs that are commonly used and, depending on which one you chose, the Polyroof specification is tailored to suit.
Decorative Tiles (PU Adhered)
If the specification requires bonded decorative tiles, we recommend the use of Mapei Kerlastic Adhesive, which has been tested and approved for use. This adhesive is flexible enough to accommodate structural expansion movements.

Paving Slabs with Cementitious Mortar
Where cementitious mortars are used additional protection is required to protect from caustic attack, including the use of Polyfinish MMA as a protective barrier and/or a suitable sacrificial layer such as taped polyethylene sheets.

- Boards are directly waterproofed without the need for additional carrier layers or plywood decking
- Minimises the height of the roof build-up allowing for more flexible designs in terms of upstand thresholds
- The boards are rot-proof, durable and maintenance-free.
- Available with bespoke cut-to-falls designs to reduce standing water
Explorer Court, Plymouth
The project included the waterproofing of over 400 square metres on the main barrel roof and lower penthouse balconies for a highly successful and NRFC award winning development by Barratt Homes. The main roof was designed with a wave effect, with an internal radius of 5672mm. For the balcony areas, the designer specified decorative timber decking over the waterproof membrane, which meant that the membrane had to be durable enough to bear the weight from the decking.
Castle Cove Sailing Club
The Castle Cove Sailing Club in Weymouth, Dorset, constructed a new terrace area to provide a viewing platform for the sailing events in the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The sailing club required a waterproofing system.
Cyril Le Marquand House
Cyril le Marquand House in St Helier, Jersey houses States of Jersey offices. The first floor terrace area had been suffering from leaks for a long period of time, which had to led to water ingress. As a result of this the existing insulation was becoming defective, leading to growing fuel bills. The client turned to Building Renovations Ltd, a Polyroof approved contractor, for a solution.
Residential Balconies with Polyroof’s 185 System
A waterproofing system that can also provide a hard wearing and effective anti-slip finish is essential to any balcony. The balcony must also be durable enough to withstand regular foot traffic as well as support heavy garden furniture and the like. As is often the case, the cost effectiveness and the aesthetics of the balcony are of upmost important to the client.
Let Polyroof Take Responsibility for Your Roof
Polyroof’s reputation has been built on the high level of technical support provided to clients before, during and after every contract. We like to work closely with our clients from the very beginning of a flat roofing project right through to completion and throughout the lifespan of the roof. From our experience, this is the best way to guarantee that all aspects of the roof are finished to the superior standards that our clients expect.
Importantly, we understand that our clients are often tasked with many responsibilities during a construction or refurbishment project. Flat roofs mean a great deal to us, but we know our clients have plenty of other aspects of a project to focus on.
This is why we strive to take on board as many of the challenges and issues associated with the flat roof that we can, freeing up our clients’ time so they can focus their efforts where they are needed most.
