For your flat or low-sloped roof, Protan FG can easily be installed on constructions with profiled metal sheeting, timber or concrete. That means that this flexible solution can meet your needs of requirements and design specifications. An exposed, mechanically fastened membrane minimises the weight per square metre in a roof construction. FPO/TPO roofs are very low maintenance and durable; resisting dirt, bacteria, algae and debris build-up. The flexibility of the membrane makes it highly resistant to tears, punctures and impact damage. With strong hot-air welded seams, the roof will have extra durability. Protan FG is a robust, costeffective, environmental friendly and durable single-ply roofing system, that protect your values for the future. Protan FG is suitable for both new build and refurbishment project.

There are many possibilities for increasing the usability of buildings. You may want to utilise the roof for recreations, aesthetical and environmental reasons, or want to provide extra living space for the building’s occupants by creating terraces and green areas. Protan FG is well suited for these constructions and is suitable for both new build or refurbishment project. The advantage of the ballasted system is that the roof membrane is protected from external environmental influences, such as UV light. In protected constructions, the roofing layer is installed as a loose covering without using attachment materials, such as fasteners, on the roof surface. The ballast is used to hold the membrane in place instead of using mechanical fasteners or adhesives.
