Vegetated roofing is one of the most exciting developments in sustainable building design. Depending on load capabilities and other application-driven requirements, green roofs can be planted with herbs, grasses, flowers, even trees, in an exciting variety of colors, textures, scents and heights. Patios and walkways can become a useable part of the roof environment. Today it's clear: vegetated roofs offer many social, environmental and economic benefits.
Unlike adhered roofing systems where the membrane is secured to the system using adhesive, mechanically-attached roofing systems secure the membrane to the system using fasteners. The Engineered System utilizes the Sarnafil S 327 roof membrane, designed specifically for mechanically-attached applications, and the galvanized steel bar,“Sarnabar", covered with a membrane cover strip.
Enhance wind uplift resistance while using fewer plates and fasteners with Sika Sarnafil's RhinoBond® System. RhinoBond is an alternative attachment system for Sarnafil and Sikaplan roof membranes. The RhinoBond system eliminates membrane fastener penetration by induction welding (fusing) the membrane directly to the specially coated plates used to secure the insulation or hardboard to the deck. The result is a roofing system that uses fewer plates and fasteners while enhancing the wind uplift resistance.
Decor takes all of the benefits of a Sarnafil adhered roof system and kicks it up a notch! Decor is the ideal choice for new or existing buildings that want the appearance of a standing seam metal roof, yet require maximum watertight performance. Decor achieves the appearance of a metal standing seam with a PVC profile rib that is hot-air welded to the membrane surface instead of using adhesive or a peel & stick attachment, permanently fusing the rib to the membrane.
Unlike mechanically-attached roofing systems where the membrane is secured to the system using fasteners, adhered roofing systems secure the membrane to the system using adhesive. Sika Sarnafil has many different types of adhesives to meet your projects specific needs such as water-based, solvent-based, low/no VOC, low-rise foam and self-adhered. Below are some of the reasons why a Sarnafil adhered roofing system might be the best fit for your project.
Why install a membrane still working out the kinks like TPO or a dark colored roof increasing your cooling bill in the summer, when you can install Sikaplan Adhered for the same price. The Sikaplan Adhered membrane, when used in combination with Sikaplan Single-Step Adhesive, is a very attractive, proven, cost competitive option for building owners who want a single-ply roof system but either need a lower cost system or might not own the building long enough to need the 25-30 year performance of a Sarnafil system. Single-step adhesive lowers costs by minimizing material usage through the use of recommended application methods, and by facilitating faster applications on top of the already cost competitive Sikaplan membrane. A win, win.
Unlike mechanically-attached roofing systems where the membrane is secured to the system using fasteners, adhered roofing systems secure the membrane to the system using adhesive. The Sarnafil Self-Adhered System utilizes the Sarnafil G 410 SA membrane which has a pressure sensitive adhesive layer added to the back during production. This innovative membrane provides all of the benefits of Sika's Sarnafil adhered roofing systems without the hassle and mess of liquid adhesives. Improve your installation productivity and eliminate adhesive fumes and VOC's from your next project!
Have an old or just failing waterproofing system and not sure what options you have now that you need a new one? Look no further than Sika Sarnafil's Grid System. This system was designed for renovation projects where the substrate is contaminated or removal of the existing waterproofing is not practical, Sika offers the grid system. It combines all of the advantages of a loose-laid Sarnafil membrane with the added security of adhered membrane grid strips.
When your project demands absolute system integrity with maximum watertight security, Sika Sarnafil's self-adhered waterproofing system is for you. The system consists of the robust G 476 Self-Adhered (SA) membrane, a composite sheet comprised of Sarnafil G 476 waterproofing membrane with a closed-cell foam backing. The foam backing is factory-coated with a pressure sensitive adhesive and is perfect for new construction over concrete decks. It can also be used effectively on renovation projects where the old waterproofing system can be removed completely, or where a new concrete topping slab is placed over the structural deck.
