Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) insulation is a versatile, cost effective choice in low-slope or tapered roofing systems where proper drainage is the key to maximum performance and longevity. Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) provides the required positive slope while retaining the structural and economic advantages of a flat roof deck.
Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) can be customized and cut to obtain the desired pitch, from 1/8 inch per foot up. Installers can cut the Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) insulation on site which gives a precise fit and allows application in a single layer creating a continual form. This design versatility translates into considerable savings in labor and framing costs. Usually the ridges and valleys necessary to provide correct drainage are supplied at 45 degree increments to the horizontal, but custom angles can be easily accommodated.
Tapered roofing is equally suited for new and replacement construction. In new construction, this can be achieved by designing a slope into the structure of the building. In this case, the roofing support columns are varied in height so the final roof deck has high and low points from which to place the roof drains. The easiest way to improve the slope of an existing roofing system is with the addition of insulation underneath the membrane. The thickness of the insulation is varied to create the necessary slope.
Expanded polystyrene is a logical, cost effective choice in low-slope roofing systems. Tapered Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) insulation provides the required positive slope to drain while retaining the structural and economic advantages of a flat roof deck. It maintains long-term thermal performance, dimensional stability and consistent moisture-resistance. Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) effectively controls the transfer of heat within all roofing systems.
