Refurbishment of 8 grain stores totalling 10500m2 on a farm in Milestone, Castlebellingham, Co. Louth
50-year-old asbestos cement sheeting replaced with Neptunus Fibre Cement Corrugated Sheeting (bronze green) providing a complete waterproof solution to protecting the stored feedstuffs.
SVK Neptunus sheeting was the perfect replacement, as the sheets have a long life span, outstanding colour retention, 100% non-drip and have a superior fitting system.
There were 8 adjoining roof sections with different roof pitches and several valley gutters to replace. Some of the steel purlins needed replacing and the elevator system had to be protected, not to mention the removal of the asbestos sheeting.
SVK Neptunus is ideal for agricultural, commercial and industrial buildings as it is extremely durable and requires no maintenance to preserve its strength. Neptunus sheets are not affected by destructive fungi, vermin or insects so will not rust or decay.

Brouder Brothers Steel Ltd, based in Rathangan, County Kildare were in charge of the refurbishment. Brouders are licensed and insured in the removal of asbestos materials in Ireland, and have over 25 years experience in engineering, fabrication and erection of commercial and agricultural buildings.
“It was very important to us to provide our client with a product that would perform as well as the previous sheet material did. SVK Neptunus is a first class material and the perfect replacement for the old roof,” says Colman Brouder, from Brouder Brothers Steel. “We have used SVK on a number of jobs and both their service and products are fantastic. SVK Neptunus sheets are supplied pre-mitred and have saved us time on site keeping costs down and therefore more competitive. Neptunus sheeting is Dept. Of Agriculture grant approved and carries all European certificates so I expect that the roof will last another fifty plus years.”
