The SSE Arena Wembley has played host to countless world class performances over the years and Firestone is now celebrating one of the most enduring: the UltraPly™ TPO roofing membrane that was installed 10 years ago. Firestone Still Performing at SSE Arena Wembley 10 Years On
As part of a £35 million refurbishment completed in 2006, the Firestone UltraPly TPO membrane provides a light-coloured, environmentally-friendly solution that is ideal for the building’s 10,000m2 sloping roof.
Combining aesthetic appeal with excellent U/V resistance, outstanding seam strength and robust, long-lasting waterproofing performance, the advanced thermoplastic polyolefin membrane has stood the test of time and is still providing the same reliable protection for the global superstars, music fans and sports enthusiasts that frequent the arena 10 years later.
The 10 year anniversary at SSE Arena Wembley coincides with the 20 year anniversary of the first UltraPly TPO installation in the USA which is still performing well today. Since then, hundreds of millions of square metres of UltraPly TPO have been installed worldwide with equally durable results from the sub-zero temperatures of Canada to the high humidity of South East Asia, and everywhere in between.
Firestone’s technical team was involved in the SSE Arena Wembley installation from the project’s concept through design and specification and throughout the installation programme, ensuring that the fully adhered system was properly installed for maximum performance with minimum wastage.
Comments Peter Fewings, technical and building services manager at SSE Arena Wembley: “The roof needs to look great, withstand footfall for maintenance teams and offer high performance, low-maintenance protection for the building. Firestone’s UltraPly TPO has ticked all these boxes for the past decade and shows no signs of bowing out any time soon.”
