Unusual application for Dryseal at Dun Laoghaire Port

View Dryseal Ireland Containers

Over the last 25 years, Dryseal has been used as an underfloor damp-proof membrane in a gymnasium, a liner for ponds and fountains, a damp-proof membrane in a lift shaft on a castle, and recently as a roof covering for a Container Home.

In early 2018, Phil Boardman of P Q Fibreglassing Ltd was asked to quote for the waterproofing of three sea containers which are now in use as storage units on the quay side at Dun Laoghaire Harbour, on the outskirts of Dublin.

The containers have a reinforced roof incorporating raised areas that act as structural ribs to give the steel roof rigidity and strength. Phil’s team levelled the roof surface using sheets of 25mm insulation board, leaving an even surface to work to. They then fixed the Dryseal system through into the steel roof, formed the laminate joints and finished with dark grey top coat.

A lightweight robust and flexible waterproofing membrane was called for and Dryseal was chosen for its superior properties.

Phil said “The priorities were to ensure that the system was securely fixed, completely waterproof and salt resistant. Dryseal fitted the bill all round”.
