VARIMAT 700: benefits at a glance
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.

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

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.
