Expansion of Seasun Tomato and Bell pepper nursery
Kapelle, Netherlands: Simon van der Meulen, owner of SVDM Dakbedekkingen, a South Holland roofing contractor, tested Leister’s new UNIROOF AT automatic welder during the expansion of Sunsea BV. Sunsea BV, a large tomato and bell pepper nursery, was expanding their production facility to include a new, 5400 m2 (58,125 ft2) hall.
The roof of the new facility consisted of corrugated steel plating, covered with PE membrane and rockwool insulation. SVDM selected Monarfin, an environmentally friendly and flexible polyolefin (FPO) waterproofing membrane manufactured by Icopal, Netherlands. The entire package was first affixed using plastic plug and screws, after which they installed the FPO using the UNIROOF AT hot air welder.
Mr. Simon van der Meulen has had many years of satisfactory experience using Leister’s professional automatic welders. Recently, he added a VARIMAT V2 automatic welder as well as a TRIAC AT digital hand tool to his equipment fleet. Of most interest to van der Meulen, was the new Leister UNIROOF AT automatic welder. The machine impressed van der Meulen with its compact design, maneuverability and digital controls.
