  • Safe2Torch:designing out the risk of roof fires
    Gas torches can be a major fire risk when installing torch-on roofing membranes. The risk of fires could be virtually eliminated if flame free products are specified at the survey/design stage. A focus group was set up by the National Federation of Roofing Contractors, which included roofing manufacturers and contractors.
