Amazon operates some of the biggest, most modern, distribution warehouses in the country. These logistical hubs are controlled by electronic systems that drive conveyors that handle millions of pounds worth of goods each and every day. It is imperative that such an environment remains completely dry.
It was no surprise that SEAMSIL, Delvemadeʼs patented silicone external repair system was recently specified and used to treat the metal roof of one of Amazonʼs distribution facilities, based in Bristol.
SEAMSIL, is the time-proven external repair system for cut edge corrosion on profiled Plastisol/PVDF coated steel roof sheeting. Invented and developed by Delvemade over 20 years ago with the full co-operation of BSC (now Tata Steel). SEAMSIL provides an effective long-term solution to edge corrosion in critical roof overlaps and gutter overhangs, which if not treated quickly and effectively can lead to leaks and eventually to partial or complete roof replacement.
Approved contractor High Access Maintenance Ltd undertook the project also using
DELCOTE HPG, another product manufactured by Delvemade, specifically for the
refurbishment of galvanised steel, aluminium plus concrete and asbestos cement gutters.
Used in conjunction with SEAMSIL 300 for defective joints, the coating system provides a
seamless solution to long-term weatherproofing of gutter surfaces.
Manufactured by Delvemade Ltd in Manchester, SEAMSIL and DELCOTE HPG are
available from Giromax Technology who oversee all UK installations. The sole distributor
helps ensure that specification and application will provide a sustainable answer that will
extend the life of roofs and preserve the value of buildings.
