Demand for rooftop games areas in schools is rising due to an increased demand for school places, not matched by an increase in a schools footprint.


A Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) with a robust waterproofing layer suitable for a zero falls flat roof - completed within a very tight deadline.


BMI Icopal’s Parabit Hot Melt Duo was chosen for this very complex job.

Byford Roofing chose Parabit as they were comfortable laying it and knew it would allow them to achieve the completion date. With limited space on site the hot melt had to be laid as quickly as possible, allowing the roof area to be used for storage of other materials whilst the project was completed.

Byford Roofing had to ensure the Hot Melt provided a totally flat surface for the application of the sports surfacing. This meant accuracy in installing the insulation layer and the paving slab ballast. “It had to be completely level to ensure the MUGA could be laid to the correct tolerances,” said Andrew Byford, Director of Byford Roofing.

Most of the 800m² roof area was applied in an initial period of two-to- three weeks. In addition to the hot melt, BMI’s Icopal Elastoflex was used to waterproof around the fence posts and roof perimeter.

Byford Roofing was pleased with the result of such a demanding contract, “I was happy with the spec we put forward, it worked well and enabled us to complete the project on time and within budget. Working with materials that we trust such as BMI Icopal Parabit Hot Melt Duo, helped us achieve a really satisfying outcome.”
