Doon University is a prestigious Educational institution located in the city of Dehradun in Uttarakhand, India amidst lush green foothills of Shivalik. It has a scenic campus with a state-of-art infrastructure, stunning architecture and a soothing environment and dedicated to promoting excellence in teaching and research while offering a full range of multi-disciplinary academic programs at the undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral level.
Dehradun is located in the valley that lies between the Himalayas and the Shivaliks mountain region. Dehradun is a ‘Rainy City of India’ with continuous and incessant rainfalls specially in monsoon. The nearby hilly regions often get snowfall during winter. The temperature in Dehradun reach below freezing during severe cold and summer up to 44 deg C.
University had roof of tin sheets and clay tiles. It blew off in one of those heavy monsoon shower. The hail-damaged old structure was removed. Certain Teed Fire screen shingles was chosen for application over area of one lakh seventy thousand Sq ft, as it is proven against cyclonic winds world wide.
When shielding a home against the ravages of sun, wind, rain, snowing weather, & fire protection isn’t enough, we obtain added protection with Fire screen without adding to the cost. Certainteed Fire screen is a tough traditional Shingle (three-tab fiber glass shingle) with excellent stability. And when we consider its good looks, it’s hard to say which is more attractive- the appearance or the price.
The new roof with Aesthetic look and additional benefit of waterproofing, low maintenance cost, rust proofing gave Doon University classic look of a beautiful building well designed and constructed.
