Fastwrap Flamespec for High Wind, High Risk Roof


Company: Paul Industries

There’s no room for error when you’re tackling an 8000m2 roofing job that’s 13 metres off the ground – especially when it’s on a site that’s prone to wind. TH Commercial Roofing chose Kiwimesh Roof Safe Mesh to provide a safe working environment, and Fastwrap FlameSpec Roofing Underlay to ensure the job ran as smoothly as possible.

“With unpredictable weather and a large canopy to complete we needed to work quickly and efficiently” said Terry Hunt, General Manager of TH Commercial Roofing. “Fastwrap FlameSpec HW Roofing Underlay is ideal for this kind of job as it is strong and easy to work with, even if the wind does pick up”.

Fastwrap FlameSpec is available in Heavy Weight and Self Support, with both variants appraised for use in all areas without restriction, including the highest wind zones. Unlike traditional bituminous building papers, it’s also flame retardant.

The design and build roofing project in Tauriko Park, Tauranga, is part of the new Cubro building by Wingate Farquahar and CBC Construction. With a strong focus on safety, the TH Commercial Roofing team used Kiwimesh Roof Safe Mesh by local company, Paul Industries to support the roofing underlay while also providing the all-important fall-through protection. “At this height, fall-through protection becomes even more important” commented Hunt. “We know we can count on Kiwimesh and we like the fact that it’s made by a local company”.

Kiwimesh is available in Mega-Length rolls up to 130m long so it’s ideal for big jobs, plus it can be custom manufactured to the exact length required for each job. This saves time and money as it can simply be rolled out and fixed, eliminating joins and wasteful off-cuts.
