In what was once the world's largest slate quarry, Penrhyn Quarry is now home to the fastest zipline in the world. As a popular tourist destination that has already welcomed over one million visitors, a reliable roofing system that could deliver exceptional protection against harsh weather conditions was required.
PROTEUS WATERPROOFING’s Cold Melt® system was the clear choice for the job, delivering a high-performance, easy-to-install solution that would last the lifetime of the building. Over 1,300 m2 of this innovative system, featuring recycled rubber-crumb and other organically-grown products were applied by a licensed contractor, creating an elastomeric, seamless, and cold-applied membrane. Despite poor weather conditions, the installation process was not delayed, thanks to the ability of Cold Melt® to be installed over green concrete.
Once cured, it formed an effective barrier that prevented any further moisture from affecting the project, enabling work to continue inside without interruption. A Proteus Technical Site Manager conducted regular inspections during installation to ensure the system was installed correctly and to the high standards expected by Proteus. Not only is the system BBA-certified to last the lifetime of the building, it is also odourless and does not become brittle with age, making it the ideal choice for a waterproof roofing system that stands the test of time.
