Introducing the UNIDRIVE 500 - Roof Welding Close to the Edge Made Easy

The new UNIROOF AT/ST roof welder is your flexible partner for welding thermoplastic roofing membranes on flat or pitched roofs (up to 30°).

Thanks to its slim design and construction, as well as the movable transport axle converting of the machine is no longer needed. Now, you can effortlessly weld close to the edge (to 100 mm ) at the parapet or on the parapet and as easily in narrow circumstances.

The UNIDRIVE 500 closes the gap between manual and automatic welding in a small, 9.9 lbs. lightweight and easy-to-handle semi-automatic hot-air welder.

Radius welds quickly and efficiently with the UNIROOF AT / ST. Pipe collars can be welded easily and quickly with the flexible axle of the UNIROOF AT / ST. Weld roofing membranes up to three times faster than hand welding with the UNIDRIVE 500. It's rotating nozzle and reversible drive makes UNIDRIVE 500 ideal for welding close to the edge and in tight spaces, either on or at the roof parapet, flashing wall, edge and curb details, as well as horizontal and vertical surfaces. The tool is equipped with three handles to provide ultimate welding comfort and balance. In addition, the UNIDRIVE 500 can be easily operated via its digital display.

  • Reliable: Ergonomic handles for balanced pressure and comfort while welding

  • Fast: Up to three times faster than manual welding

  • Versatile: Rotating nozzle and reversible drive for dual-direction welding

  • Practical: Compact and lightweight at 9.9 lbs.

  • Economical: Low maintenance due to its brushless motors

  • Intuitive: Simple user guidance and operation via digital display

  • No converting: Thanks to the movable transport axle the UNIROOF masters welding closte to edge at or on top of the parapet. 

  • Swiss Quality you can rely on: Field-tested design for ergonomic handling, flexible relocating and optimal machine guiding.

  • The direct-driven, maintenance-free pressure wheel [drive motor integrated in pressure wheel] leads to clearly optimized overall performance and is easy to service. 

  • Greater efficiency at construction sites: The new UNIROOF class brings an additional 38% (ST) to 66% (AT) higher welding performance compared to similar machines. 

  • Welding roof structure profiles with a special profile kit.

Radius welding with UNIROOF AT/ ST


Single Ply Roof Membrane Welding with the LEISTER Triac ST

The Leister Triac ST plastic welding tool being shown in use on the roof for single ply membrane welding

The TRIAC AT shows, at the push of a button, the current mains voltage (quality checking before the welding process)

The built-in motion sensor knows when the tool is not in operation and reduces the blower level to its minimum speed, which means up to 40% energy saving and noise reduction

Handiness, reliability and versatility are the key arguments in favor of the TRIAC ST. Its two-component handle gives users perfect grip, while the low weight of less than a kg ensures optimum weight balance. The  innovative motor and turbine design, combined with the heating element familiar from the TRIAC AT, enhance  the value even more. More than 80 nozzles fit onto the TRIAC ST; these are also compatible with the TRIAC AT and TRIAC S. 

  • 100% Swiss made quality 

  • 60 years of expertise in making hot-air tools – brought together in the new TRIAC ST 

  • The sturdy, professional hot-air tool that weighs less than 1 kg/2.18 lbs 

  • Functional design: two-component handle grip and optimum center of gravity ensure ergonomic working 

  • Quick clean air filters 

  • Automatic carbon stop (collector protection) and heating element protection
