Home/Mechanically fixed roofs 

Mechanically fixed roofs 

Mechanically fixed roofs are held in place . These fixings secure the single ply membranes over the top of the insulation and then the air and vapour control layer is fastened in place to the roof deck. Waterproofing can be mechanically fixed; however, some systems allow for installation The fixings can be used on a variety of substrates, including steel, concrete or plywood.

 

Mechanically fixed roofs utilise single ply membranes that can be homogenous or polyester reinforced. These solutions can be used in cold, warm and inverted roof assemblies and are often chosen for projects where high wind uplift is expected. Mechanically fixed single ply membranes are lightweight and flexible and can help minimise the roof depth.

Mechanically fixed membranes are often specified for complex detailing and specialist installations such as simulated metal roofs. Mechanically fixed roofs are suitable for application in new build and refurbishment projects alike, and because there is a range of available finishing colours possible, designers have greater flexibility with their projects.

Mechanically fixed roofs that utilise single ply membranes are rapid and economical to install. As no hot works are required, installation is possible on wide variety of buildings, including occupied premises. One of the main benefits of mechanically fixed roofs is their durability. The exceptional mechanical properties and high UV stability and resistance result in long service life and resistance to material ageing.

 

What are the benefits of mechanically fixed systems?

  • Exceptional mechanical properties and product performance ensure waterproofing with high integrity
  • Durable and robust roofs that results in a long service life
  • High UV resistance and UV stability is ageing resistant
  • Relatively fast, economical and safe installation
  • High design flexibility and application in specialist roofing projects and complex detailing
  • Aesthetically pleasing finish
