Helping you adapt to the changes
Klober realises how important the changes in BS 5534 are to you, and we’re here to help. We can offer the products, technical support and training to give you total peace of mind to make the transition smoothly. As part of our initiative, we have produced a guide to give you a brief insight into how the new standard will affect the way you install pitched roofs from March 2015.
Why the new standard was needed
With weather patterns changing, new methods of assessment affecting factors such as wind uplift forces have confirmed the need for improved fixing specifications. Such changes were made all the more urgent by the high incidence of roofing complaints to the NHBC buildmark warranty in relation to mortar failure, underlay performance and tile /slate fixing.
