- Steel deck.
- Timber deck.
This deck is covered by a bituminous vapour barrier with a high water vapour resistance installed with cold or hot glued joints. The insulation is either onto mineral wool or some types of PIR. All insulation materials have to resist a compression strength of minimum 50kPa (0.5kg/cm2), at a maximum 10% bend.
- With this build-up the vapour barrier is crucial.
The insulation material has to comply with building regulations (i.e. fire resistance).
- Between the ZINC PLUS and the insulation, the VMZINC Breather Membrane (link to 8.1 VMZINC Membrane) is fixed with an overlap depending on the pitch. For a pitch lower than 14º the joints must be taped, between 14º - 22° there must be an overlap of 200mm, just steeper than 22° or unless it changes above 40º there must be an overlap of 150mm.
NB: The information relating to the installation of insulation and membranes is simply an indication. The choice and installation of these products will be in accordance to the manufacturers instructions.
*With this build-up, the use of a bituminour vapour barrier is crucial to its performance.
