REDUCE THE COMPOUNDING DAMAGE OF ROOFTOP FOOT TRAFFIC

High-performance roof boards help lessen the impact of compressive weight over time.

LONG-TERM TRAFFIC PROTECTION

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:

INSTALLATION
icon
Stiffens and stabilizes the roofing system and protects against accidental punctures during construction.
MAINTENANCE
icon
Safeguards against added work stress, as workers transport tools and equipment to repair damages and check on HVAC or photovoltaic (solar) equipment.
RECREATION
icon
Enhances durability under the increased weight of cumbersome equipment, permanent installations, and frequent visitors on rooftop gardens and public-use spaces.

ASSEMBLED TO LAST

Commercial building roofing is at risk of damage over time from ongoing maintenance and repair worker visits.
Green roofing, including rooftop oasis space for tenants is another common source of commercial building risk of damage from visitor foot traffic.

Installing DensDeck® Prime and DensDeck® StormX™ Roof Boards in the cover board position (between the membrane and insulation):

  • Supports the waterproofing membrane with a smooth adherent surface
  • Distributes weight to prevent insulation compression and puncture
  • Reinforces the strength of any fasteners attached to the cover board to hold the assembly together

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.
