New and improved A1 T3 Plus adds weight to Protect’s roofing offer

posted: 5th Feb 2020

Protect A1T3 Plus impermeable HR underlay with an improved product weight, designed for pitched roofs in new build and re-roofing schemes.

Protect Membranes, UK producer of construction and roofing membranes, has re-launched its impermeable roofing underlay Protect A1 T3 with an improved product weight to give added value for money for its customers.

New Protect A1 T3 Plus is a heavy-duty type HR roofing underlay designed for all cold and warm pitched roofs on new build developments and re-roofing schemes.  This four ply underlay now has a weight of 190gsm of high quality non-woven spunbond with an absorbent undersurface to prevent condensate drip off and is completely air and water tight.  This helps to ensure the product can provide a secondary line of defence to wind driven rain and snow.

John Mellor, Product Manager of Protect Membranes commented, ”This underlay is now in its fourth generation, having been originally designed to overcome the disadvantages of traditional Type 1F and 5U felts.  We have now evolved this product to introduce a heavier weight, high performance underlay offering a robust solution to roofing projects. With our existing A1 T3 being tried and trusted for installation across the country, the new product retains its unrestricted wind uplift resistance at Zones 1-5 at 345mm batten gauge, giving wide scope for its use across the UK and Ireland.”

Protect A1 T3 Plus is CE marked, produced in the UK and available ex-stock in 1m x 45m or 1.5m x 30m options.
