When it comes to roof decks, you probably don’t pay much attention to what is underneath your roof membrane. Just like roof membranes, there are a variety of different types of decks that provide support and stability to the roof system as a whole; metal, concrete, gypsum and even wood.
Insulated Concrete Forms for Floors, Roofs and Elevated Buildings. Ideal for residential, commercial, and institutional construction, INSUL-DECK buildings are not only more comfortable, quieter and super energy efficient, but can also provide safety from hurricane level winds, fire and floods.
use of lightweight insulating cellular concrete for roof cream in appearance) into a cement/water slurry. The water/ decks in both new construction and reroofing applica cement ratio of cellular concrete (0.50 to 0.60) is similar to that
The use of lightweight concrete as a roof decking and insulation system has expanded in the past five years. Increased usage can be attributed to the recent industry-wide insulation shortages and delamination deficiencies.
Q.: We have installed a metal deck for a roof system on which the engineer has specified a lightweight concrete composite system. We have installed a vented metal decking, but the engineer has requested that solid metal decking be used. With lightweight concrete should the deck be vented or unvented.
Structural Panels Concrete Roof Deck is an innovative technology designed to provide a structural roof sheathing without the need for thermal barriers, pouring, setting, or curing, which resolves the latent moisture issue commonly found in roofing with poured concrete.
Beneath the roof cover, structural concrete roof decks are commonly topside insulated using adhered insulation panels or cast-in-place lightweight insulating concrete. Structural Concrete Composite Deck – A supported steel panel deck system filled with normal weight or structural lightweight concrete.
ROOF INSULATION. Perlite concrete roof deck insulation is an ideal base for built-up and single-ply roofing systems. It has superior wind and fire resistance over other roof insulation materials and with the addition of polystyrene insulation board sandwiched in the perlite concrete, high thermal resistance values, are economically achieved.
Manufacturers of metal decking used with Siplast Lightweight Insulating Concrete Systems publish manuals that show the design procedures and resulting load/span tables for their specific products.
LIGHTWEIGHT ROOF DECK CONCRETE is a one component lightweight insulating concrete ideal for roof fills and for providing slope. It is adaptable to any roof configuration, and depending upon the condition of the existing roof, may be installed directly to build up roofs, gravel roofs and galvanized steel deck roofs, thus eliminating costly tear.
The FRDA has supported the lightweight concrete roof insulation industry for more than a decade, setting the standards for high quality lightweight insulating concrete roof decks throughout the state of Florida and providing assistance to design and construction professionals.
SERD is a specialty subcontractor providing lightweight insulating concrete roof decks, metal decking, tectum acoustical roof deck panels, engineered fills, and material sales. SERD was originally founded as Southeastern Roof Decks in 1963 and for 50 years primarily specialized in lightweight insulating concrete roof deck systems.
Lightweight Insulating Concrete Decks There are two general types of lightweight insulating concrete roof decks. Those made with lightweight aggregates such as perlite, vermiculite, or polystyrene beads; and those made with pregenerated foam or another air entraining agent to form lightweight cells.
New Lightweight Concrete Technology - Roofing Contractor 6 Mar 2007 . The use of lightweight concrete as a roof decking and insulation system has expanded in the past five years.
Insulation . Siplast Lightweight Insulating Concrete Systems combine the unique properties of lightweight insulating concrete and Insulperm premium expanded polystyrene foam insulation board. Siplast Lightweight Insulating Concrete is available in four mix designs: ZIC, NVS
The most common use of vermiculite lightweight concrete is for light, structural roof decks, and for insulation fill over metal decking and structural concrete. Vermiculite for roof decks can be placed over various kinds of form boards- fiber, fiberglass, acoustical, and asbestos cement- as well as over paper back wire lath.
Our recommendations when structural lightweight concrete decks are going to be installed, is to either install a ballasted roofing assembly or to install a vapor barrier directly over the structural lightweight deck and then mechanically fasten at least one layer of roof insulation to the deck.
And it all starts with the roof deck.. Lightweight insulating concrete systems use cellular concrete with or without expanded aggregate, such as vermiculite or.
