When designing and specifying a low-slope roofing system, it's important to consider the roof system's ability to resist external fire. Now, there are products available that can provide the necessary fire rating for your roofing system while also helping your building achieve credits toward LEED certification.
The roofing system on a cold storage facility will be very different from that of a traditional building. Whether the building stores refrigerated foods, frozen foods, plants, flowers, life-saving medications, or something else entirely, the roofing system plays an important role in keeping cold air inside the building.
Introduction Wind design of roof systems can be confusing from an engineering perspective. Wind design can also be confusing because the International Building Code (IBC) provides specific requirements, but so does Factory Mutual (FM). If FM is specified, do the IBC requirements need to be followed? What is the wind-design strategy for FM-insured and non-FM-insured buildings? This blog will discuss the following:
Low slope roof penetrations can be a source of problems if not done correctly. Pipe, vent, and conduit penetrations through low slope roof assemblies can cause problems for an otherwise tight membrane, insulation, and deck design. With many intermediate layers in roof assemblies, such as a vapor retarder and cover board, there are opportunities for things not to be done correctly somewhere in the assembly. It gets even more complex when we consider that in order to use a vapor retarder, there might be an additional cementitious board above a steel deck.
