The team are celebrating after scooping two awards at the prestigious UK Roofing Awards, hosted by the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC). The awards took place on the 19th May in London and recognise outstanding standards in the roofing industry. Projects were judged on several categories including workmanship, safety, complexity and the challenges they overcame.

CARLISLE® CM Europe RESITRIX EPDM received the Single Ply Roofing Award for the Macallan Distillery in Scotland. (see above).

Additionally, the same project scooped the Green Roofing Award. This project is one of a kind in the UK and required several tailor made solutions including a bespoke roof design that was created by the CARLISLE® CM Europe’s technical team.

CARLISLE® CM Europe’s CARLISLE® Academy provide specialist product and installation training at the CARLISLE® Academy in Mansfield (Nottinghamshire) and LAYDEX Belfast which covers intricate product and installation details adhering to the correct product specifications.


To ensure the highest quality and watertight roof, RESITRIX® SKW Full Bond, ALUTRIX® 600 and RESIFLEX® products were specified from CARLISLE® CM Europe’s product range. RESITRIX® SKW is a full surface, self-adhesive and root resistant EPDM waterproofing membrane. The vapour barrier membrane ALUTRIX® 600 has the added advantage that it can be walked upon straight after installation and that it is puncture proof. RESIFLEX® expansion joint tape was used for professional cross and joint sealing.

The Macallan Distillery Expansion project brought multiple teams together and has contributed to a raising industry standard for innovation, design and workmanship.

Using the fast installation of RESITRIX, the Roofing Contractor worked to a tight deadline and brought all their experience together to produce a roofing project that was completed two weeks ahead of schedule.

“We are so proud to win the award in the single ply roofing category but what is equally impressive is that the same project also won an award in the green roof category, which is a testimony of the far reaching benefits of our products and specially our bitumen backed EPDM RESITRIX® SKW Full Bond” stated Duncan Kirkwood, CARLISLE® CM Europe’s UK Managing Director.
