COVER STORY OCTOBER 2017 | BUILDING PRODUCTS 9 times lighter than traditional roof tiles. Additionally, the system is not reliant on roll forming or seaming on site, providing a real advantage for contractor teams to ensure workmanship levels remain consistent and that there is a robust approach to quality control. Designed to last in excess of 40 years with BBA Certification, the SSR2 Roofing and Cladding system is an innovative and sustainable solution for conventional pitched roofs as low as 5deg.. Meeting all legislation for wind loadings, weather tightness and fire performance, the panels are 100% recyclable, with a carbon footprint that is three times lower than some of the leading ecodesigned urban roofing products. Stephen Petrie, Director of Little England concluded: “We worked closely with the architect to evaluate a number of alternative solutions but none of them could offer the same performance and aesthetic requirements within the necessary budget. “I was very pleased that SSR2 was selected as we’ve worked with the system before. It is so lightweight; and because it features a simple locking design it’s amazingly easy and quick to work with, especially compared to other systems I have used. We managed to complete a high quality roof in just three weeks.” Committed to providing architects, designers and builders with the most relevant information and terminology in relation to the specification of the SSR2 system, Catnic offers a complete scheduling service. Catnic’s experienced technical team can advise exactly what is needed for each individual project by using details straight from the building plans. With just a few brief project details, specifiers can upload project drawings directly to the Catnic website and receive an accurate quote. As well as an array of comprehensive literature, the Catnic website also offers access to explanatory videos to highlight the ease of the SSR2 installation process and the team’s top tips for installers. For more information on the SSR2 Roofing and Cladding system visit www.catnic.com or follow @CatnicUK Located just a stone’s throw from Catnic’s head office, the new SSR2 training centre in Caerphilly, Wales, features a fully equipped classroom environment. The facility aims to provide roofing contractors and trade professionals with the theoretical knowledge and practical understanding of the installation process. The centre has four specially developed rigs to allow both basic installation training and instruction on a range of situations that could be encountered on site. This includes how to modify the panels to fit features such as roof windows and chimneys. The training is designed to help attendees make the most of the SSR2 Roofing and Cladding system and ultimately further reduces installation time on site.
