IKO's breather membranes meet BS 5534

IKO’s Rubershield ECO, ECO EXTRA, PRO and PRO EXTRA membranes are being launched in February before the new legislation is enforced. The BBA Approved range offers options suitable for every wind zone using a 345mm or 250mm (or under) batten gauge.

The wind-zone classification is printed on the underlay wrapping, clearly showing which zone each option is suitable for, and the maximum recommended batten spacings.

“IKO Rubershield is a well-established and trusted brand,” said Paul Owen, commercial director of IKO’s distribution division.

“We’re leading the way by launching a range that meets the standard now, and making it easy for roofing contractors to meet the standard.”
