Langley Waterproofing Systems Ltd has pledged its support to the 100% Hackitt campaign, an initiative which aims to ensure that all recommendations made in the Hackitt Review of fire safety and building regulations are fully implemented.

The 100% Hackitt campaign was launched by Local Authority Building Control (LABC) and the British Board of Agrément (BBA) to bring together key individuals and organisations from across the sector. Its rationale is to encourage the government to implement all 53 recommendations made by Dame Judith Hackitt in the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety report

Dean Wincott, Managing Director of Langley Waterproofing Systems Ltd, commented: “We are strong advocates of the 100% Hackitt initiative and encouraged to see the rapidly growing levels of support it has received from across the industry.

“The importance of improving fire safety cannot be over stated. Despite the recommendation in the Hackitt review that major changes are required, there is a risk that without pressure and support from the industry, regulations will not go far enough to prevent potential future tragedies and we fully support the recommendation of improved accountability, transparency and record keeping.”

Paul Everall, LABC Chief Executive said: “I welcome Langley’s commitment to 100% Hackitt. Dame Judith is clear the industry should be getting on with changing the way it does things. So we’re delighted so many like-minded organisations are working with us to do just that. The 100% Hackitt initiative is a space for everyone who wants to see systemic change in the construction industry and Langley’s support is a further sign the whole industry is getting behind it.”

Dean concluded: “The new regulatory framework laid out in the final Hackitt review report includes the creation of a new Joint Competent Authority that would monitor the design and construction of buildings to minimise safety risks. It also champions better procurement processes, greater enforcement powers and more rigorous product testing – important messages that resonate with Langley Waterproofing Systems Ltd, who responsibly put all products through demanding test processes to ensure that each one is suitably tested as part of a wide range of real-life scenarios.”

Langley Waterproofing Systems Ltd is leading the way with its new hand applied Cold Polyurea liquid waterproofing system. For use on flat roofs, balconies and walkways, Cold Polyurea is a quick to install, fast curing and durable solution.

Cold Polyurea is an advanced, wet on wet, fully reinforced liquid waterproofing system – and the latest addition to Langley’s range of flame-free, cold applied liquid waterproofing systems. It is flexible and suitable for a number of applications; it can be used in both the refurbishment and new build sectors and is suitable for flat roofs, balconies and walkways.

Cold Polyurea is one of the fastest curing systems on the market – within just three hours of being installed, the roof can withstand foot traffic. Its fast application means installers are on site for less time, reducing disruption to the building and its occupants, as well as the client.

Langley’s new system is available for roofs, walkways and balconies and can be installed utilising an insulated or un-insulated system. For roof installations, Cold Polyurea includes a UV stable sealer coat, to protect the roof from sun damage and prolong its life-span. When installing on walkways and balconies, the sealer coat of the Cold Polyurea is UV stable and slip-inhibiting, to improve the safety of those accessing the area.

Dean Wincott, Managing Director of Langley Waterproofing Systems Ltd, said: “One of the major benefits of Cold Polyurea is its versatility – with a variety of supporting products, as well as different colour options, it can be specified for a wide range of projects. Price point is also a key factor and the combination of this, including a faster curing time, allows the Cold Polyurea products to be a market leading waterproofing system.

“Here at Langley, we recognise that fast application is also a key consideration for installers, which is why Cold Polyurea can be applied and cure within just one day, depending on the size of the work area. We feel this is a real benefit within the refurbishment sector, particularly when applied to balconies and walkways to occupied dwellings. The ability to install without the use of heat or flame, also offers safe installation for those on site, as well as building occupants.”

The new Langley Cold Polyurea system is classified with a Broof(t4) fire rating, which independently tests for the external spread of fire under the Building Regulations, meaning it is unrestricted on where it can be used on a roof. It is fully BBA certified and meets NHBC Technical Standards Chapter 7.1 for roofs and balconies. Cold Polyurea also offers a long-term solution with a 25+ year life expectancy. The system is available with independent insurance backed guarantees of 20 years; an assurance that the system can withstand continued use over time.

Langley ensures that a fully bespoke specification is completed prior to the installation of the Cold Polyurea liquid roofing system, to ensure that the chosen system is carefully considered, specified and expertly installed, by one of a network of Langley Approved Contractors, for each individual project.
