Tor – Wall & Roof Cladding Solutions are designed as protective and decorative coating systems which add waterproof protection and colour to buildings.
In order to remain visually attractive and retain its protective properties in the long term, architectural cladding needs proper care. Left unchecked it may fade and deteriorate to such an extent that replacement may be the only option. Our range of specialist coating systems provides a cost effective means of extending the life of wall cladding, beautifully transforming its appearance in the process. Over time, factory-coated roof cladding will require maintenance. Thermal movements can open up fixings and joints and lead to water ingress. Our specialist coating systems ensure vulnerable areas – especially unprotected cut edges – are waterproofed and deliver either 10 or 15 year performance before first major maintenance. The systems also serve as a durable, long-term decorative finish and can be tinted to most colours.
Roof Cladding Solutions.
- TACKLING CUT EDGE CORROSIONCut edge corrosion is where the exposed edges of factory-coated cladding become weathered and corroded after time. Timely treatment of cut edge corrosion will extend the life of your cladding system and can also stop or guard against roof leaks, hence saving on the cost of replacing the cladding.The Tor EdgeProtect system provides a cost effective means of tackling cut edge corrosion. It seals and safeguards corroded edges and mechanical fixings to leave the roof watertight.
- OVERALL WATERPROOFING SOLUTIONWe offer two coating systems for waterproofing and refinishing factory coated metal profiled cladding, which are used in conjunction with our EdgeProtectTM system. RaincoatTM is an acrylic-based system that offers excellent weathering properties and 10 year protection. TorcladTM Colour Dynamic uses moisture-cured urethane technology to deliver exceptional 15 year performance.
Both topcoat systems can be tinted to most RAL, BS, or NCS colours and are compatible with common substrates such as PVC Plastisol and coatings which combine substrates and finishes such as silicone polyester or PVF2. For translucent GRP cladding, normally used for natural roof lighting, our clear TransglazeTM system can also be incorporated.
- DECORATIVE REFINISHINGIn situations where roof cladding is sound but colour is affected by fading, Raincoat or Torclad Colour Dynamic can be applied as standalone decorative finishes. This can be particularly useful when the objective is to rejuvenate the exterior of a building due a change of ownership, to match corporate branding or to blend in damaged panels – or to simply extend the life expectancy of the cladding.
Wall Cladding Refurbishment.
Due to the natural ageing process, all factory coil-coated cladding will suffer degradation from ultra violet light from the sun and general weathering. This causes colour fade, chalking, crazing and ultimately delamination of the original coating, rendering the cladding visually unappealing and prone to corrosion.
Raincoat and Torclad Colour Dynamic systems offer building proprietors and specifiers a cost effective and high performance solution for the refurbishment, decoration and protection of wall cladding.
Both systems protect cladding substrates with a decorative and weatherproof layer; adding revitalising colour in the process. They are compatible with all common types of factory coated steel cladding and can be matched to most RAL, BS or NCS colours.
They can be spray-applied to deliver a smooth, flawless finish – leaving the building looking as good as new. Our RaincoatTM system delivers 10 years’ performance, with Torclad Colour DynamicTM offering 15 years of stunning, durable protection.
