Ballasted rooftops are becoming a popular building option in schools, hospitals and larger Office blocks. They provide an attractive, cost effective covering for warm roofs that blends well with a range of architectural styles. Juvenile gulls simulate and practice the smashing of shells to obtain food by picking up ballast & stone (20mm – 80mm) and dropping them on to hard surfaces, this is behaviour they copy from observing their parents and can occur all year round.
Falling ballast is an obvious Health and Safety risk to the general public and all who use the buildings and surrounding areas such as car parks and outside space areas on a daily basis - as an example the most attractive ballast size found dropped measures between 20mm -100mm.
We can supply our Eco Ballast nets in various mesh sizes. Colour choices are black, stone and translucent. Flame retardant netting is also available in black and has a red strand running through it to denote its flame-retardant properties.
Choosing the correct fixings and netting gauge is critical to ensuring a long lasting, cost effective solution as is installing the system to the roofs without causing any damage.
Our specialist teams are professionally trained in cutting, joining and tensioning our Eco Ballast Nets which means that no trip hazards are created by the installation. Eco Ballast Nets are installed without any mechanical components which means that no fixings are required through the waterproof systems and all roof warranties are protected.
