Developments in the roofing sector have followed each other at lightning speed in recent years, in particular in the field of sustainability. Think for example about circular product development, re-uses and recycling, new processing methods and demountable roofs. With GuardianWeldTM, Guardian adds a fastening method that is not only durable but also cost-efficient. Also, working with GuardianWeld™ saves time and is ergonomically.
How does GuardianWeld™ work?
With GuardianWeld™, you fasten the insulation to the construction with a specially developed pressure plate. Possibly in combination with a tube that ensures the reduction of the thermal bridge. The roof membrane is then laid over it. The GuardianWeld™ pressure plate has a special coating (for TPO, PVC or EPDM). The pressure plate is heated utilising induction, as a result of which the layer is activated and adhesion with the roofing membrane is established. After welding, a magnet is placed on the plate that provides extra pressure on the weld and rapid cooling.
