Flex-R supplies two market divisions, for both new build and refurbishment projects, with the clear principles of high quality, durable products and customer experience.
- Specialist Registered Installers with RubberBond FleeceBack, Sure-Weld TPO& LQD-R waterproofing & flat roofing systems.
- Authorised Merchants with the ClassicBond, DuoPly & Sure-Edge range of EPDM membranes and accessories.
The EPDM & TPO membranes supplied are manufactured by Carlisle SynTec Systems who have been one of the leaders in the single-ply roofing industry for more than 50 years.
Carlisle’s products have been installed on a wide range of buildings around the world, including schools, hospitals, warehouses, and cold storage facilities. With more than 1.8 billion square metres of roofing materials sold. These superior roofing systems are supplied through a select network of registered distributors. Flex-R Ltd. has been the sole authorized distributor for the British Isles for over 15 years.
Experience – learning by doing- is invaluable and cannot be manufactured. Untested processes and unaccredited materials can lead to intended product deficiencies in the system. Make sure your EPDM system is manufactured and supplied by companies that have been around long enough to have learned and grown from past experiences.
Flex-R strive to achieve that their flat roofing systems meet all relevant standards as required by current legislation.
Distributors should ensure that the products they supply are fit for purpose and meet regulatory requirements. This is easy to see in Agrément Certificates and the CE mark. This is especially important for products coming from overseas that may have been manufactured with another market in mind.
We are an expanding company with a dedicated group of people whose tasks is to meet and look after the expectations of contractors, business owners, specifiers, architects, property owners and customers across the British Isles.
As we grow one of our key business aims is for the people inside Flex-R to give the people & businesses outside of Flex-R a positive experience that is hard to find in the construction industry.
