About Protan expand_more
Protan provides robusted roofing and membrane solutions world wide. Technology makes us efficient in customisation for the specific environment
Protan supplies strong and durable roof coverings that offer architects and builders the safety and flexibility to use our roofing systems for different purposes and aesthetic solutions that require that little bit extra.
Protan has 50 years experience in producing high-quality roof coverings with a long documented lifetime. These Ttechnically sound and sustainable roof coverings, are developed for extreme Nordic climates, making exposed roofs easy to look after and maintain.
Protan’s roofing solutions can be used on all types of substrates, whether new-builds or refurbishment projects. The roof coverings are quickly installed, and all joints are welded with hot air. Protan’s thermoplastic membranes have a low carbon footprint, are recyclable and, since electrical welding equipment is used, are installed without with zero emissions.
Protan supplies roof coverings in both PVC and bitumen for installation on exposed roofs
Produced in Norway.
Low weight and small volume.
Smaller carbon footprint than bitumen roofing.
Emissions-free installation – Protan membranes are welded with electrical hot air equipment.
Can be recycled or reused.
Fulfills the various environmental certification requirements, such as BREEAM.
Protan’s roof coverings for exposed roofs are self-extinguishing and do not spread fire readily.
They satisfy the requirements for fire class BROOF (t1)(t2)(t3)(t4) on the most common substrates.
Protan roof coverings are welded with hot air and not an open flame, so provide a safe method of construction.
In 2015 Finans Norge revised its safety requirements to tighten the rules around the use of open flames on roofing. By choosing Protan’s solutions, builders avoid this risk.
Protan products have extremely resistant to tear. This is especially important to prevent roofs from being blown off or damaged by wind in areas prone to strong wind.
Tear strength also helps roofs to tolerate sharp temperature swings and the big temperature differences between the warm and cold seasons of the Nordic climate.
Protan roofing is thus extremely durable and, if installed correctly and with proper follow-up, can last up to 40 years.
Protan Vacuum Roof is a unique system that does not require fasteners on the roof surface. The force of the wind generates negative pressure which sucks the membrane firmly onto the roof structure. This is particularly well suited to the refurbishment of large roof surfaces.
The Protan Cool Roof system uses a white roof covering, with a documented high sun reflectance value or SRI (Solar Reflectance Index), to reduce the need for cooling the building internally.
Architects and builders who use Protan roof coverings enjoy great aesthetic and visual flexibility without sacrificing durability, strength and environmental requirements.
Protan Solar Roof facilitates the installation of solar cells or panels on roofs using Protan roof coverings. The choice of roof covering depends on what type of solar panels will be used.
