Everybody knows Velcro tape. Its tried and tested in many areas. A new area is the use as a mechanical fastening for bitumen membranes used in roofing.
The principle is quite simple: hook tape strips are rolled out parallelly and mounted to the surface using roofing screws. Afterwards, the sealing membrane easyklett® is rolled and pressed onto the tape. Finally the overlays are simply closed using a hot air device.
Cutting out and the bigger number of joints of conventional single-ply bitumen systems is very time-consuming. Time you win employing easyklett®, thanks to fewer working steps.
The variable arrangement and the quicker fixing of hook tape in contrast to fastening at the border of a strip saves application time.
With easyklett® retrofit of new parts like ventilations or light domes is easy. The detachable connection between felt and hook tape even allows sandwich constructions – another bonus of a well thought-out, safe sealing system.
And: the option to create a conventional connection to the bituminous cap layer using a welding strip remains for decades, thanks to the high quality compounds.
