Lightweight solutions for flat roofs

Single ply waterproofing, and upgrading with a green roof and solar PV.

Single ply waterproofing is a popular lightweight solution that can also support upgrades to the roof with renewable energy and green roofs.

This seminar explores the individual merits of single ply as a lightweight waterproofing system, the aesthetic finishes that can be created, including profiles and a vegetated green roof. This waterproofing type can incorporate a range of insulations to meet the design needs of the building.

The presentation covers the correct choice of single ply (PVC or FPO) and a comparison of their advantages, which air and vapour control layer is optimal, and which fixing method is best suited for the different deck types or construction essentials.

On completion

You will be able to understand where each type of single ply membrane is most suitable, the parameters and the design considerations necessary for correct specification and detailing.
