Sectors typical requiring DensDeck® Roof Boards
DensDeck® Roof Boards are typically specified and installed on buildings where roof performance is critical. Superior acoustic, fire, weather resistance and robustness are common drivers within biotech, datacentre, airports, museums and libraries and heritage style buildings.
Data centre roof design
The DensDeck® Roof Board helps protect all types of flat roof build ups from natural forces such as hail and wind. They provide dimensional stability to the roof system and help shield the waterproofing membrane from dead loads of heavy plant and sudden impact, such as dropped tools or flying debris, whilst adding additional fire resistance.
Airport roof design
Airports, hangar and maintenance buildings, car parks and other buildings in the aviation sector present their own set of challenges. These projects have intensive schedules and once finished, the highest level of building performance is expected to keep passengers comfortable and safe.
The performance enhancing capabilities of fibreglass mat face gypsum cover boards are ideal for specification in the aviation sector.
Biotech centre roof design
The construction of biotech centres must overcome a very specific set of challenges. These buildings fall within the critical sector and the expectation is that their roofing systems must be very robust.
Specification of fibreglass mat facer gypsum core cover boards enhances the performance and longevity of roof systems for biotech centres. It can also target improvement in specific areas of building performance, as required by each project.
Heritage buildings roof design
Conservation and refurbishment of roofs for heritage buildings demands attention to detail. They often use roof coverings made from traditional materials, making installation more time and labour intensive.
Heritage roofs may have areas that are difficult to access, posing a challenge when it comes to the installation and the performance of the roof system. Cover boards are specified to make roof refurbishment easier. They also help increase the building performance of traditional, heritage buildings.
Museums & Libraries roof design
Roofing systems for museums and libraries have the important function of protecting valuable collections and creating a safe, comfortable space for the public visiting the facilities. Museums and libraries often combine traditional heritage buildings and striking modern extensions.
This allows architects and designers to blend high performing heritage roof refurbishments with modern green, metal, solar panel roofs, roof terraces with parapet systems or a fusion of the various roof types. Cover boards are a crucial part of these roof build ups capable of enhancing their performance and extending their design life.
