Fatra and the Designer

As the demands on the designer grow increasingly complex Fatra brings a reassuring combination of technical ability with commercial expertise.

A roof must be more than waterproof, it now often must now be able to accommodate additional insulation, be economic to install, safe to maintain, long lasting and have demonstrable environmental performance.

Fatra's comprehensive range of roof systems and products are backed by extensive experience in roof design to help designers to achieve all this and more while not losing sight of commercial restraints. The robust detailing is simple to design and easy to carry out ensuring that the design aims are met on site.


Fatra have been assessed by the key bodies, including the British Board of Agrément (BBA) assessment of a life expectancy of ‘in excess of 30 years’, ISO14001 Environmental Management, ISO9001 Quality Management, as well as the BRE Eco-points, all confirming the environmental and quality aspects of the Fatra systems.


Fatra are able to provide advice on roof build ups, including the selection of insulation and other components. This can be presented as a suggested NBS specification.


Fatra have over 80 standard details and can provide bespoke CAD details if required.

Windload calculations

Because Fatra calculate fixing densities based on our own range of fixings the designer is reassured that there is no split liability and the roof will be secure.

Insulation performance

Fatra work with the leading insulation manufacturers to provide thermal calculations and also when required acoustic performance. This integrated approach helps achieve a buildable roof system.

Environmental assessment

Fatras roof systems are not only listed in the BRE’s ‘Green Guide to Specification’ as able to achieve up to ‘A+’, but have also been assessed by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) to have ‘eco-points’ and are listed on the BRE’s ‘Green Book Live’ web site.


For these more complicated projects Fatra also inspect the existing roof to assess if it is suitable to be over laid, an option which can save time and money.

The Fatra technical support continues when the project starts with Fatra Field Technicians visiting the roof while it is being installed to ensure the design is being installed correctly and to assist in solving unforeseen details should they occur.

The completed roof is inspected and then a range of comprehensive guarantees are offered depending on the projects' requirements.
