We recently attended the RCI, Roofing Cladding & Insulation, Show in Milton Keynes, which returned following a break due to the pandemic. It was good to be reacquainted with some old friends within the industry and also take the opportunity to make some new contacts.
For us, the Roofing cladding & Insulation Show is a useful event as we get to see what’s new or changing within the industry. Whilst many roofing or cladding products remain similar it is always useful to learn about new innovations or products on the market which are often exhibited at events such as this. We use this information to ensure ongoing continuity between the test services we offer and the products which are available on the market to our clients.
Our electronic leak detection service of waterproofing membranes can be applied to the vast majority of waterproofing products and systems, but there are always situations where this may not apply. For that reason, it is important that our knowledge base keeps pace with the market.
It is also essential to understand the various other products used in the construction of the building envelope, particularly when investigating leaks, which can occur many years after completion of a project. In addition to the roof waterproofing membrane, knowledge of cladding and facade systems or construction of other structural items is required to ensure accurate location of leaks by utilising the appropriate test for the system we are investigating.
It is important for us as a company to be at the forefront of the industry in electronic leak detection of waterproofing membranes and building leak detection. For that reason, we continue to build on our knowledge of the construction industry and visit events such as this.
We look forward to attending next year’s show and hope to meet many more likeminded people within the industry.
