Sawtooth roofs of an industrial warehouse in Braunschweig

The railway technology provider Alstom planned to use a new warehouse at its location in Braunschweig. They had to have the best possible working conditions there, so the client had the old sawtooth roofs of the building refurbished. The leaky
glass covers were letting in moisture and needed repairing. A high-quality solution with a ten-year guarantee was required to ensure that the roof would remain watertight in the long term. This requirement was met by the sun-TEC Group, Bad Salzdetfurth, together with liquid applied waterproofing manufacturer Triflex. Combining various products for glass and metal created a total of 4,000 metres of permanent waterproofing.
