The terminology may vary, but it’s the application that matters. This may be the best add-on that you’re not familiar with…Yet.
If you ever speak to a roofing consultant, they will tell you their top fears are sharks, public speaking, and roof liability. Okay, that might not be true to all, but it does highlight the importance of a perfectly sealed roof. The first question we should ask is what can cause leaks on flat commercial rooftops?
Leaks can be caused by a number of things on a rooftop. These include dirt and debris, around the flashing, roof penetrating structures, and pooling water from blocked drains.
The Gasket series is a piece of roofing membrane that is mechanically attached to our C-Port. It gives the installer the ability to attach the C-Port to the roofing membrane with ease. As we discussed in a previous blog, this helps with wind uplift, some seismic applications and prevents potential roof damage in the future. As with any membrane, each material has a different way to adhere to the current roof membrane.
We can apply a slip sheet to any of our product lines. TPO or EPDM is available and we can cut custom sizes and apply them for those special jobs. Let us know the application and the roof membrane, and we can have a solution for you within a very reasonable time frame.
If you browse our product section on our website, you’ll notice a very broad range of rooftop pipe supports for pretty much every flat commercial roofing situation. One of those categories is the C-Port Gasket Series or CGW Series. This is a product line that is used by a very loyal customer base of ours. What I mean by that is, once customers use this, we see them re-use it because of how beneficial they find it.
