High-performance roof boards help lessen the impact of compressive weight over time.
The compounding impact of foot traffic is often underestimated when designing a roof assembly. Costly damage from ongoing foot traffic over the duration of the roof's life is easily avoidable with a high-performance roof board in place to help mitigate the need for re-roofing sooner than usual. DensDeck® Prime and DensDeck® StormX™ Roof Boards help protect a building's rooftop across a lifetime of visitors' foot traffic:
Installing DensDeck® Prime and DensDeck® StormX™ Roof Boards in the cover board position (between the membrane and insulation):
Over time, ongoing foot traffic can compress unprotected insulation and stretch or puncture the membrane. A high performance roof board protects the assembly materials from this damage, while increasing the sturdiness of the roof’s foundation underfoot.
PRESERVE THE ROOF MEMBRANE: Rigid cover boards provide a smooth substrate to support the waterproofing membrane with the right balance of strength and blend.
PROTECT THE INSULATION: High-performance cover boards protect the more delicate insulation from compression and other damage-when degrades the material, lowering its R-value for thermal heat regulation.
