A state-of-the-art hospital in Wakefield is one of three hospitals which have benefitted from a PermaTEC Hot Melt system, installed by national building envelope contractor, Prater.  In total over 15,000m2 of the material has been used on roof areas at the Wakefield site.

PermaTEC EcoWrap features new wrapper technology which blends into the material itself when heated, removing the need for heavyweight cardboard box packaging and eliminating site waste. The product requires lower application temperatures on site which speeds up installation and uses less energy. The product is also manufactured in the UK, which means its delivery has a dramatically lower carbon footprint than imported systems.

PermaTEC Hot Melt is only available from SIG Design & Technology and can only be installed by their IKO trained and licensed contractors.
