UNIROOF ATs unique advantages
Leister Technologies, Swiss multinational leader in the plastic welding sector, presents the automatic welding machine for thermoplastic membranes: UNIROOF AT. A tool that's very popular for waterproofing thermoplastic roofing membranes. This segment is constantly growing with more and more companies discovering the advantages of this type of membrane, compared to traditional bituminous membranes.
The use of fire? No need
There are different types of bituminous membranes on the market and various installation techniques. Some membranes have an adhesive surface, others require the application of adhesives or the use of hot air to weld between sheets. However, the most common laying technique involves the use of open flame (propane gas cylinder and burner).
ReliabilityAnother advantage of using thermoplastic membranes is that they can be welded with automatic welding machines like UNIROOF. Unlike laying bituminous membranes, which must be done by hand, automatic welding offers high quality and precision. UNIROOF AT requires no manual operation since the tool enables the user to weld near parapets (up to 100 mm distance), in narrow spaces and even inside gutters, thanks to the space of the small, rear trolley (only 200 mm).
The rear trolley can also be pushed sideways, eliminating the risk of "wandering" onto an uneven surface. Removing manual work, in addition to the time and money-saving benefits, leads to greater reliability of the welds and therefore better quality of the waterproofing.
Efficient and lightweight
A facilitated approach
Those who have never laid waterproof thermoplastic roofing membranes will find the UNIROOF very helpful for this new technique. Its ergonomic and lightweight characteristics, combined with an intuitive operation, make UNIROOF ideal for an initial approach to this type of waterproofing. Compared to most welders, UNIROOF is easier to handle, lightweight design at 17 kg.
It's ideally suited for small-medium surfaces, both flat and sloping. Additionally, UNIROOF is capable of reaching speeds up to 3m/min for 1.8mm thick membranes. UNIROOF is the ideal addition to larger automatic welders (VARIMAT V2 for larger roofs) since it can be utilized in smaller spaces, on or at parapets and more.
The linear design of the UNIROOF makes it easy to handle in all conditions, allowing you to dodge obstacles, without compromising safety. Leister has also paid great attention to the reliability aspect: UNIROOF has sealed electronic boards to offer the best protection against humidity and dust. In addition, both the feed motor and the blower motor are brushless and therefore require very little maintenance.
