SPEED, EASE AND QUALITY
Unlike adhered roofing systems where the membrane is secured to the system using adhesive, Sikaplan Fastened Systems secure the membrane using fasteners within the membrane seam overlap. Typically called an “in-seam” attachment system, after the plates and screws secure the edge of the membrane, the next sheet overlaps the fasteners and is made watertight by hot-air welding the seam. This type of system is considered one of the fastest most cost effective ways to install a single-ply roof. Below are some of the reasons why a Sikaplan fastened roofing system might be the best fit for your project.
MECHANICALLY-FASTENED SYSTEM BENEFITS:
- Cost competitive against TPO and EPDM
- Fast and easy installation
- Best for low slope applications
- Standard uplift resistance
- Proven PVC membrane
A MEMBRANE DESIGNED FOR MECHANICALLY-ATTACHED APPLICATIONS
The Sikaplan Fastened membrane is a thermoplastic PVC roof membrane used in mechanically-attached systems. Similar to the Sarnafil S 327 membrane, this roof membrane is polyester reinforced, which provides the high breaking and tearing strength needed to prevent excessive elongation and sheet deformation under the stresses produced by the lifting of the membrane by wind in this type of system. Sikaplan Fastened membrane is formulated to match the performance level of typical PVC sheets offered in the industry whereas Sarnafil is formulated to perform the longest in the industry.
