Force® Waterproofing System

A superior range of high performance SBS polymer modified reinforced bitumen membranes. Engineered to guarantee durability, Force self protected systems have exceptional ageing characteristics and a proven track record of excellent performance.

As the name suggests, Force has been developed to be strong and long lasting, and designed to withstand the rigours of the modern construction environment. The membranes have been manufactured to incorporate enhanced polymer content and high strength reinforcements that provide outstanding material durability, flexibility and workability.

Force systems guarantee a complete specification solution comprising Air and Vapour Control Layers (AVCLs), tapered or flat board thermal insulation, underlayers and robust capsheets self finished in a choice of colours, providing a versatile and robust finish to suit both new construction and refurbishment projects.


The Force system is extremely versatile and can be adapted to suit the exact requirements of the roof, ensuring the best, most appropriate system is specified. Application flexibility and performance characteristics make Force ideal for use on all construction types as well as an overlay system for cost effective roof renewal.

All Force system assemblies comply with British and European standards and have been approved by the British Board of Agrément under certificate number 15/5222 PS3. Force is classified as unrestricted by the requirements of The Building Regulations Approved Document B: Fire Safety and certified Broof(t4) in accordance with BS EN 13501-5:2005 fire classification of construction products and building elements. Force systems have also proven themselves to meet the performance standards set out in Building Bulletin 93 Acoustic Design of Schools when combined with Hytherm MF non combustible insulation.


Installation of Force waterproofing systems is carried out by accredited installers whose operatives have successfully attended Axter’s RBM upskilling course. Force systems can be installed in a single or multi layer application on all support structures, and can be fully or partially bonded in a flame free, hot air welded, cold bonded or torch applied application on flat and pitched roof specifications. All system components are specified and installed to ensure compatibility and single source responsibility, and detailing is completed in full compliance with Axter recommendations and the NFRC Safe2Torch guidance.
