A green roof or living roof can be an effective way of reducing and slowing rainwater runoff as well as creating a habitat for wildlife.
Xps inverted roof insulation.
Insulation that holds the upper hand on heat and cold.
However xps is more common for below grade waterproofing and roof systems where insulation is placed over the roof membrane irma or inverted roof membrane assembly.
17 5467 iko enertherm xps is a rigid extruded polystyrene xps board with a global warming potential gwp of less than five.
Made to reduce the harm of freeze thaw cycles styrofoam brand roofmate xps insulation helps maintain a steady temperature in roof membranes reducing damage during and after construction and is reusable in many applications.
We supply pir xps and rock mineral wool inverted roof insulation that is suitable for green roof and ballasted roof finishes from well known insulation brands.
Thermal performance of an inverted roof is improved when used in conjunction with iko enertherm wcl.
Inverted roofs are becoming a popular alternative to conventional roofs because their benefits include long term cost savings sustainability benefits and increased community resilience.
Invented by dow in the late 1960 s an inverted roof system uses dupont styrofoam brand xps insulation to protect the membrane helping improve the performance and longevity of the entire roof system.
A variety of roof coverings can be used including green roofs and timber decking.
The highly water resistant characteristic of xps roof insulation actually enables green roof construction.
A lightweight lap jointed board with high compressive strength and performance.
Suited for a wide range of applications foamular extruded polystyrene xps insulation is ideal for roofi ng applications including single ply protected roof membrane assemblies prma tapered vegetative roofs plaza decks architectural metal roofi ng and recover roofi ng.
Protherm g xps x 300 ultra inverted roof insulation has a zero ozone depletion potential odp a global warming potential gwp of less than 5.
Bba approved certificate no.
Eps and xps are resistant to moisture.
In addition certain thermoplastic roof membranes require a separation layer between the layer of insulation and the membrane.
As the insulation and water control layer are loose laid on an inverted roof rather than mechanically or adhesively fixed a ballast is required to stop them being lost to the wind and prevent flotation after heavy rain.
For use with inverted roof waterproofing such as permaquik pq6100 eshaflex eshauniversal paraflex fd and readyseal.
Protherm xps layer is a rigid closed cell type extruded polystyrene board with integral high density skin.
An inverted roof is a form of flat roof where the waterproof layer is beneath the insulation rather than above it.
