Filter Factory WIX-FILTRON Gostyń, Wielkopolska (PL)

WIX-FILTRON is known throughout Europe as a filter factory for cars and is based in Gostyń. Leaking gutters on one of the steel roofs of the factory was compromising production, as water ingress was sure to cause moisture damage. Due to
an extension of the building by two further halls, drainage channels, which used to be located at the edge of the roof, are now located on the inside of the roof surface at the intersection of various metallic roof surfaces. To ensure the long-term waterproofing of the roof, these gutters measuring approx. 200 running metres were permanently waterproofed with liquid applied waterproofing Triflex ProDetail.
