The Task

The existing roof on Curragh Girls National School in Curragh Camp, County Kildare had deteriorated and was in need of refurbishment. With an approximate roof area of 1300 square metres, it was essential that any roofing solution was lightweight yet durable.

EQC’s Solution

We created various lengths of EQC Nordman Tilesheet profile to suit all roof areas from Colorcoat® LG by Tata Steel.

We also supplied colour-matched flashings and round ridges to suit in Raven 18B29. This gave the roof a consistent and clean aesthetic.

EQC also supplied the fixings screws to complete the roof build.
