ROOF ACCESSORIES: VENTILATION AND VENTILATION PROTECTION
Good ventilation helps the water vapour inside the building envelope to dry, preventing the formation of interstitial condensation at the insulation of the structure. In winter, ventilation makes snow that may have accumulated on the roof to melt evenly, preventing it from slipping uncontrollably. During the warmer months, on the other hand, ventilation removes some of the thermal energy stored under the roof, contributing to improved housing comfort.
The ventilation layer offers additional protection in the event of accidental infiltration, as it creates a second layer of water flow and prevents water from stagnating, the small details then help us protect the air intake and exit points from the entry of insects, birds and obstacles (such as leaves) that could prevent the free circulation of air.
MICROPOROUS VS MONOLITHIC MEMBRANES
Monolithic films are made from hydrophilic polymers, which are able to interact chemically with water and are generally more elastic. No mechanical or thermal stresses are created in the production process of monolithic films. Therefore, when a monolithic membrane is exposed to ultraviolet radiation, this is the only source of stress for the functional film and degradation is less than it would be for a microporous film. The UV resistance of monolithic membranes is generally higher.
Do you know the difference between monolithic and microporous membranes in terms of resistance to water penetration? If the answer is no, find it out in this video.
GUARD railings, for example, are versatile and adaptable to every design requirement: they are available in fixed and reclining versions. They are assembled in just a few steps, and offer multiple fastening options (vertical, horizontal, with Z-brackets, etc.) or even without drilling holes in the roof if the version with ballasts is chosen.
