      There are two common configurations of roofing systems depending on the relative placement of the roof membrane and the thermal insulation—the compact conventional and the protected membrane roofing assembly (PMRA). A green roof can be installed on either, each with its own pros and cons. The primary distinction of a Protected Membrane Roof Assembly (PMRA) is that the roof insulation is placed on top of the membrane. Although the theory of a PMRA assembly can be adapted many ways, the most common form consists of a roof deck, a directly adhered or loose-laid roof membrane, a loose-laid extruded expanded polystyrene, a loose-laid.

    The membrane now also serves as the vapor retarder for the system, eliminating the need for a separate vapor retarder. The above-membrane thermal insulation keeps the membrane well above freezing, eliminating ice damage and keeping the drains open. Any melt water that reaches the membrane remains as a liquid in route to the drains (see figure 3. Type 4 for use on conventional or protected membrane roofing systems; Type 4 with a factory-applied latex-modified concrete topping for protected membrane roofing systems; Type 3 for use on conventional roof systems; Type 2 for use on conventional roofing systems [density of 24 kg / .

    In a roofing system, insulation provides thermal resistance, while your membrane provides waterproofing. And the best way to protect insulation, one of the most expensive material components of a roof system, is to use a cover board. Cover boards provide performance, protection and peace of . Roof Insulation with Rigid Foam. Airfoam offers a wide range of high performance, budget-friendly roof insulation more than 45 years, Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) roofing insulation became the solution of choice for new and re-roofing needs because of its many benefits..

Get this from a library. Water absorption of insulation in protected membrane roofing systems. [David Schaefer; Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (U.S.)]. (XPS) Foam Insulation* is designed for installation above waterproofing or roofing membranes in protected membrane roof (PMR) or green roof applications.

Engineered for use on heavyweight decks (e.g. reinforced concrete) with a ballast layer of gravel or concrete slabs, Styrofoam ™ Brand Roofmate helps the roof membrane maintain. Ribbed Roof Insulation for Enhanced Drainage in Protected Membrane Systems Foam Insulation* is designed for use above waterproofing membrane in protected membrane systems (PMR) that include pavers or patio stones as primary ballast.

It helps the roof membrane maintain a steady temperature, minimizing the Water Absorption, ASTM C Low water absorption capacity (≤ 10%) Lightweight (3) Closed cell foam structure Direct contact allowed to PVC single-ply membrane Suitable for adhered roof systems Suitable for ballasted roof systems Suitable for green roof systems Suitable for use with liquid-applied membranes (LAM) (4) Insulation boards with rebated edges.

Protected Membrane Roof (PMR) In a protected membrane roof, also known as an inverted roof membrane assembly (IRMA), the insulation is installed on top of the membrane. The insulation may be exposed to water, so it should have minimal water-absorption characteristics. Extruded polystyrene (XPS) is the most suitable type.

The above-membrane thermal insulation keeps the membrane well above freezing, eliminating ice damage and keeping the drains open. Any melt water that reaches the membrane remains as a liquid in route to the drains (see figure ). Snow that accumulates on the PMR surface adds to the winter insulation value of the assembly.

Insulation technology has evolved over the decades, and some types, like rigid extruded polystyrene foam (XPS) is highly water resistant. This insulation can be placed above the roof membrane, protecting the membrane from elements while continuing to deliver thermal efficiency.

This approach is commonly referred to as a Insulated Roof Membrane. In fact, we have you covered from below ground level, up to where your building touches the sky.

Choose either of our Protected Membrane Roof Systems – HeavyGUARD® or LightGUARD® to achieve both insulation and ballast for your low slope roofing needs. EnergyGuard™ Perlite Roof Insulation is a homogenous board composed of expanded perlite particles, selected binders, and cellulose fibers, which give EnergyGuard™ Perlite Roof Insulation its insulating efficiency.

The surface is treated to reduce bitumen absorption, ensuring proper adhesion of roof membranes. insulation protection waterproofing materials The key to an effective thermal barrier is proper installation of quality insulation products. A house should have a continuous layer of insulation around the entire building envelope.

Studies show that improper installation can cut performance EXTRUDED POLYSTYRENE BITUMINOUS MEMBRANE DPC BITUMINOUS PROTECTIVE PRIMERS. Thermal insulation as part of an inverted roof construction, laid over the waterproofing layer, in the following roofing systems: Sika® Sarnafil® sheet membrane; Sikalastic® liquid applied membrane flat roof system.

In certain plaza deck systems, insulation is provided directly on top of the membrane and protection layer. This component then functions as a foundation layer for the upper plaza deck wearing surface.

Low water absorption. The safest route is to locate the insulation above the waterproofing membrane in a protected roof membrane (PRM. Popular in green roofing systems, the Protected Roof Membrane Assembly (PRMA) places the insulation layer above the waterproofing membrane, an inversion of traditional roofing systems.

The insulation is protected from environmental extremes, but is exposed to moisture; the natural water resistance of FOAMULAR® EPS and XPS minimizes water. Resilient, lightweight, high-density, closed-cell polyisocyanurate foam core roof board.

Meets the requirements of ASTM CType II, Class 4, Grades 1, 2 and 3. High-Density Polyisocyanurate Foam Core: Closed cell polyisocyanurate foam technology provides additional insulation value, with lightweight and low water absorption characteristics.

Including a high-performance roof board in your roofing system is essential to the protection of the building and the valuable contents inside.

With its combination of fire resistance, strength and dimensional stability, industry professionals count on DensDeck ® Roof Boards to enhance the performance of their roofing systems.

Protected Membrane Roof System and Roof Terrace With its low water absorption, extruded polystyrene insulation can isolate roof and below-grade walls while effectively maintaining water. Versico Roofing Systems' warranties provide industry-leading protection, covering the repair of leaks from a variety of causes.

With a Versico warranty, you can feel confident that your building has long-term protection. Warranty Claims; Online Copy A/Copy B. XPS roof insulation types X (15 psi), IV (25 psi) and V ( psi) are commonly used with mechanically attached cool white roofing membranes and a simple slip-sheet.

XPS and the white membrane, installed directly to the steel roof deck, combine to create a highly sustainable roofing system. Jablite Premium Inverted Roof Insulation Flat Roof Insulation –Protected Membrane Roofs Jablite Inverted Roof Insulation is a unique innovative closed cell expanded polystyrene (EPS) with low water absorption properties •KIWA Certified (BARS-A-UK) •Suitable for use on flat roofs with zero pitch and slopes up to 10°.

proven to be a key component in protected membrane roof (PMR) systems. A conventional roof places the membrane on top of the insulation, leaving the membrane vulnerable to extreme temperature changes, freeze-thaw conditions and physical abuse from heavy foot traffic (Figure 1).

The PMR system places the insulation on top of the membrane. Roofing Systems Adhered Roofing Systems Water Absorption Roof insulation which has become wet or damaged should be removed and replaced with solid, dry insulation. Water often has been called the “elixir of life.” Without a doubt that’s a true statement, given that water covers 70 percent of the Earth’s surface, that life emerged from the oceans and the human body is 60 percent water.

As crucial as water is to human health and wellbeing, when it comes to buildings, H20 is one of our worst enemies.GreenGuard PB4 Waterproofing Protection Board After the waterproofing membrane is applied to the foundation, protect it from damage during backfilling with PB4 Waterproofing Protection Board.

This durable extruded polystyrene (XPS) board has the compressive strength and impact resistance to withstand even the toughest load pressures.
