The variety of "plies" on a roofing system suggests the variety of layers, i. e. "four plies" denotes a four-layer flat roofing membrane system - cedar shake roof. BUR systems are redundant, indicating if one layer breaks down, several staying layers supply immediate protection. These systems likewise offer terrific tolerance for constructing tension and resistance to thermal shock, high puncture resistance and exceptional membrane strength and durability for tested long-term resilience.
The secret to this system is the repeated layers - architectural roof shingles. BUR also is understood for superior fire resistance from external flames. Reflective appearing choices also are readily available to offer optimal membrane protection, remarkable puncture resistance and high resistance to foot traffic and mechanical maintenance. With standard application procedures, IKO BUR Systems use robust protection for today's structures and are available in traditional four-ply.
Enhancing fabrics also are called roof felts or ply sheets. Roof felts are enhanced with either glass-fiber mats or organic mats. A tested waterproofing product and appropriates for use in chosen damp proofing and waterproofing applications. Mod Bit systems consist of factory-fabricated layers of asphalt that are "modified," utilizing a rubber or plastic component for increased versatility and combined with a support for extra strength and stability.
It's discovered in natural deposits or might be a refined item and is used for both roadway appearing and roof. Bitumen displays a thermoplastic quality when softened by heat. In customized bitumen, there are 2 primary modifiers used today: APP (atactic polypropylene) and SBS (styrene butadiene styrene). APP and SBS refer to the type of polymers that are added to the asphalt.
Scrim is a reinforcing material made from continuous filament yarn in an open mesh construction. Mod Bit membranes are typically set up as a 2- or three-ply (increase) system. The type of modifier used might identify the technique of sheet installation: mopped down using hot asphalt or heat bonded to melt the asphalt so that it flows onto the substrate.
The membrane system might be kept in put on the roof by totally adhering the base sheet, mechanically attaching the base sheet or utilizing ballast. High efficiency customized bitumen roof and waterproofing systems are rapidly set up, simple to maintain and cost efficient. Mod Bit membranes are usually hot mopped like conventional BUR but also may be used as a torch down item.
If hot asphalt is required for other roofing operations to adhere insulation or a base sheet, it's likely more economical to hot mop the cap sheet too. Heat welding (likewise described as "torch down") can vaporize surface area wetness from the bonding area. Heat welding preheats and softens material, using benefits in winter.
A range of specifically designed heat bonded systems are provided, consisting of Armourplast APP Heat Welded Cap Sheets, the PrevENt line of fire rated cap sheets and Torchflex SBS Membranes in both base and cap sheets. Designed to reduce labor and installation time, the IKO Torchflex Roofing System can offer large office complex and commercial warehouses with numerous years of security.
Roofs are thought about totally adhered if used directly to roofing system decks or insulation (industrial roofing). From PrevENt Fire Rated Premium Heavy Responsibility Cap Sheets to Modiflex Cap and Modiflex Base Sheets, these durable fully adhered products will include strength and life to your roof. IKO Mechanically Attached Roof are known for consistency and sturdiness, and include those that are secured with a fastener system straight into the building's structural deck.
IKO Fire Rated Roof are created to manage extreme temperature levels and to mitigate fire. The PrevENt line of premium SBS cap sheets offers boosted performance with graphite innovation for the greatest fire resistance rating (Class A) offered in a flat roofing membrane. Graphite is applied to the upper face of the support mat throughout manufacturing of the cap sheet and acts as a fire retardant by expanding quickly when exposed to high temperatures.
IKO Reflective and Eco Roofing Systems deal reflective residential or commercial properties created to provide protection from the damaging results of the sun and ultraviolet radiation. From ArmourCool to the new fire resistant Carrara ArmourCool HD, these membrane systems set up like a standard cap, are strengthened and constructed to last, supplying a substantial contribution towards enhancing structure energy efficiency and expense savings to the building owner.
Provided throughout the complete line of asphalt systems, these HD membrane items consist of Fast-N-Stick, Torchflex and Avoid membranes, in addition to the new environmentally friendly Carrara ArmourCool HD. Premium Strong Composite Systems install like a basic cap and professionals can anticipate much better "ordinary flat" propensities with increased general strength. IKO Cold-Applied Roof Systems include cold process adhesives that are appropriate for use with vapour retarders and Modiflex Base and Cap Sheets.
