EJObar utilised for solar PV
at Berkeley Homes development

The installation of a Solar PV System onto a relatively new-build roof, waterproofed using a Fatra single ply PVC membrane. The flat roof is over a separate apartment building incorporated into a new-build housing development by Berkeley Homes.

The Solar PV installation is onto a compact roof area of approximately 128 square metres. Consultation between the main contractor, Evo Energy, and the membrane manufacturer Fatra, had meant independent compatibility / weld-strength testing by the membrane manufacturer, which resulted in a positive approval for EJObar.

Approved Fatra membrane installers, Tilbury Roofing were sub-contracted to hot weld the 1m EJObars into position. The range of lengths that EJObar is manufactured in, proved a distinct advantage in certain areas of the roof. For example, where the guttering outlets are located, there is a necessary concave dip to create a natural water flow. The EJObars were easily able to create a bridge here, maintaining a flat penetrative-free fixing base on which to install the PV system.
