Phase 1 Cut Edge Corrosion and Edge Lap Treatment
Health and safety amongst our employees, clients and the general public is something, we at JDB Refurbishments, keep at the forefront of our projects. We aim to provide a high standard of health and safety across all aspects of our business, from surveying right through to installation. It is because of this that we were approached by The Rushes in Loughborough to assist with all of their shopping centre roof maintenance.
Phase 1 of the project was to survey and maintain the roofs of Argos, TK Maxx, Next and JD Wetherspoon at The Rushes Shopping Centre in Loughborough, with as little disruption to the general public and business hours as possible. We sent one of our expert surveyors to assess the situation and offer up possible solutions to maintain the current roofs.
The metal sheets used to construct the roof were experiencing cut edge corrosion and required remedial edge lap treatment to prolong their lifetime. Corrosion occurs when the cut edges of the metal sheets become exposed to the elements and without proper maintenance will eventually need replacing. When caught early cut edge corrosion can be controlled and at JDB Refurbishments we have the experience to offer an edge lap treatment with a 10-year warranty on the coating applied, to provide you with peace of mind that your building is as safe as possible.
As well as maintaining the roof sheets, the guttering system also needed to be re-coated, all fixings had to be replaced and we were also asked to install a new man safe system across the entire roof network. This would allow inspections of the roof to be carried out on a more regular basis. We can offer an array of man safe systems including access ladders, free-standing handrails and fall arrest systems to ensure the safety of your employees and visitors.
With many sites across the UK, JDB Refurbishments can offer a cost saving when a new installation is needed. Our experienced team can help our clients with different projects that are on offer to increase a building fabrics longevity.
Our team at JDB pride themselves in their expert handling of health and safety issues. If you are interested in discussing a refurbishment or maintenance project with us, big or small, please call on 01536 416538 or use the contact button below.
