Errigal Contracts Ltd

Errigal Contracts approached Obex with the need for waterproofing a tricky cantilever balcony area for a new development.

After a thorough inspection and analysis of the area and the products being used, we were able to fully assess Errigal’s specific needs and requirements to help provide them with a solution that delivered on quality and cost.

The decision was made to produce a 5mm thick EPDM sleeve to slip over the Schöck Isokorb® type KS unit to provide a fully weather-tight seal.

Errigal were very pleased with the clean finish of the product and how simple the installation was. Their affinity for the quality of the product lead them to purchase 850 units to be used on the whole new development of 290 homes at Galaxy House, Croydon.

“It has been a pleasure to work closely with Obex on delivering a complex and challenging EPDM sleeve detail for balcony locations on our Morello Galaxy House Project for Redrow Menta Limited”
commented Brendan Treanor, Facades Manager. Who was not only impressed with our product but also with our approach.

He also mentioned that instead of taking two hours to seal each bracket using 0.75mm EPDM and Paste Adhesive, it only took them five minutes.

He continues, “From initial concept through to design drawings and to the delivery of the final product, the level of service and attention to detail has been second to none. The finished detail has been well received by both the client & the NHBC. We are looking forward to working with Obex on future projects.”

We at Obex can mold our EPDM to any shape required (within the parameters of tooling) to assist our clients even further. We now offer a new fire-rated EPDM alternative!
