BIM modelling for mechanically fixed roof systems
With a mechanically attached roof system, the EPDM roof covering is attached to the roof construction with a fastener that goes through the insulation layer and into the substrate. Because the fastener goes through the insulation layer, the entire roof package is attached to the substrate. A mechanically attached roof system has been increasingly used in the UK in recent years. In addition to a simple mounting method, a mechanically attached roof has high wind uplift resistance and is easy to separate during renovation.
Our RESITRIX® and HERTALAN® EPDM waterproofing membranes are both suitable for use as part of a mechanically fixed flat roofing system.
