Use DensDeck® Prime and DensDeck® StormX™ Prime Roof Boards to support photovoltaic paneling weight and add protection against fire hazards.
As more people and businesses discover the benefits of using renewable energy to power their buildings, solar-powered roofing’s popularity continues to grow. But the heavy equipment overhead needs sturdy support below, if you’re going to avoid potential sources of damage that can come with it. Photovoltaic (PV) equipment requires a sturdier cover board to support the wear of installation, and withstand the weight of the paneling. Including a cover board in the PV roofing assembly adds extra support for the duration of the roof’s life, including protection from the extra abuse associated with the maintenance of the solar panels.
