Viking's CodeMarked Membranes Keep Risk Down

This month marks the one-year anniversary of Viking Roofspec achieving its first CodeMark certification. The acquisition of CodeMark for Viking Bituclad torch-on membrane, was followed up by Viking Enviroclad TPO membrane becoming the second CodeMark certified Viking system seven months later.

This time-lapse demonstrates the 'bruising' process a supplier must endure in order to achieve a CodeMark certification, but this is what makes CodeMark so reliable and trustworthy. At the end of this process, the market becomes aware that: (i) this is a pristine membrane system; (ii) made by a world-class manufacturer; (iii) represented by a professional local distributor, and; (iv) installed only by licensed applicators.

This is precisely why Viking Roofspec decided to pursue CodeMark certification for its systems — a desire to raise the standards of waterproofing in New Zealand. Only three roofing and decking membranes in New Zealand hold CodeMark certification — two of these belong to Viking Roofspec. The core, underlying drive to raise the standards of waterproofing results in an increased reassurance to the end-user that his/her building will remain watertight for the duration of the system's life-span and beyond.

A couple of examples of recent projects whereby CodeMark certification was a key motivator behind Viking membranes being specified included several thousand square metres of Enviroclad being installed on a cold store at Fonterra in Te Rapa. The other was a very large, award-winning architectural home situated in Bendemeer, Central Otago, using Bituclad torch-on. In both cases, the decision makers demanded 'absolute risk minimisation' and with Viking's CodeMark certified membrane systems, that's what they received.

Note: Viking Bituclad has now been replaced with three fit for purpose solutions: Viking GM Lybra, Gemini and Phoenix Super.
