PVCDue to various industry trends ARTI is no longer representing a PVC manufacturer. Whether we agree or not with changes in said trends they nevertheless take place. Generically speaking, PVC's are available in large sheets, in a wide variety of colors and may be fleece-backed for re-roofing
TorchesA number of roofing systems are installed using torches, some using flame and others hot air. Materials such as PVC, TPO, APP and SBS (to name a few) can be installed by applying heat to the materials thereby liquifying the product to cause adhesion.
Hydrapressed Concrete SlabMost if not all above grade plaza decks are actually a roof system, more appropriately termed IRMA (see IRMA). Hydrapressed slab offers the most discriminating Architects, long term and beautiful solutions to providing suitable (usable) deck surfacing over the most sensitive roofing requirements. Concrete ballast for roofs, plaza, recreational, pool and other decks. How is all of the accomplished on a sloped deck? By first planning the installation of a very unique system of pedestals which are made of an inert composite material to resist rot, water penetration and durable enough to withstand the weight of concrete slabs. These pedestals are arranged on the deck to allow the slab to remain level while allowing the sloped deck to preform as designed and shed the water to internal drains or scuppers. Check this out! Bison Pedestals in action!
SBS sheet waterproofing membraneFactory coated scrims of various type; including but not limited to fiberglass, polyester and combinations thereof. The scrim configuration may also vary from woven, loose, random, fleece etc. Coatings range from modified asphalt such as SBS and APP. Ordinarily these sheets are applied to a prepared substrate, in a lapped fashion, adhered with either hot asphalt, cold or other appropriate adhesives, and/or mechanical fasteners.
Roof and Wall Protection CourseEngineered gypsum boards (also known as 'cover boards') are designed to provide a durable, water resistant protection course within various roofing and wall systems. Used as an effective underlayment Dens-Deck provides a smooth, sound substrate ready to receive single-ply, multi-ply commercial grade roofing assemblies all while improving or supplying the sole component for Class A fire ratings. Beneath steep sloped metal, tile, shingle roof systems, Dens-Deck amply serves as a preparation to receive insulation or the felts prior to installing the final roof system. High
Engineered gypsum boards for sheathing walls- For walls, proper sheathing not only strengthens, develops fire resistance and provides proper substrate to receive Air Barriers and other EIFSystems but "enhanced sheathing" eliminates building wrap and fluid applieds saving time (reducing trips around the building) all while providing superior barrier performance you need and expect but at a substantial labor savings.
Density Wood Fiber Board- All wood fiber boards are not created equal, only use high density materials in a roofing assembly. Readily available, wood fiber board can compliment any single-ply, BUR or other asphalt roof system requiring a rigid course between insulation and membrane. Also available with perlite for additional resistance to fire.
