1.4 DEFINITIONS

Specifier Note: Define unusual terms not explained in the Contract Documents but are used in unique ways not included in standard references. This article is rarely used BUT this is a new term as of 2003.

  • A. LTTR (Long Term Thermal Resistance) is defined as using techniques from ASTM C1303 or CAN/ULC-S770, the predicted R-Value that has been shown to be equivalent to the average performance of a permeably faced foam insulation product over 15 years. LTTR applies to ALL foam insulation products with blowing agents other than air, such as polyiso, extruded polystyrene and polyurethane. The new method is based on consensus standards in the US and Canada.

PART 3 - EXECUTION
3.1 EXAMINATION

  • A. Examine roof deck for suitability to receive insulation. Verify that substrate is dry, clean and free of foreign material that will damage insulation or impede installation.
  • B. Verify that roof drains, scuppers, roof curbs, nailers, equipment supports, vents and other roof accessories are secured properly and installed in conformance with Contract Drawings and submittals.
  • C.Verify that deck is structurally sound to support installers, materials and equipment without damaging or deforming work.
    • 1. Start of installation indicates installer accepts conditions of existing deck surfaces.

3.2 APPLICATION / INSTALLATION

*** VERIFY NEED FOR A VAPOR RETARDER WITH DESIGNER IN ACCORDANCE WITH CURRENT VAPOR RETARDER THEORY AND ENGINEERING FORMULAS. WHEN REQUIRED, INSERT INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS OF VAPOR RETARDER MANUFACTURER. .***

Specifiers Note: Atlas strongly recommends the use of a vapor retarder with a perm rating of 0.5 or less (i.e., 4 mil polyethylene minimum) on all projects except those in extreme cooling climates.

  • A. Install specified insulation using approved [mechanical fasteners] [hot asphalt] [adhesives] in accordance with manufacturer´s latest written instructions and as required by governing codes and Owner´s insurance carrier.
  • B. Install with end joints staggered to avoid having insulation joints coinciding with joints in deck. In multi-layer installations, stagger joints in top and bottom layers.

*** NOTE TO SPECIFIER: ATLAS SUPPORTS NRCA AND OTHER INDUSTRY AUTHORITIES IN RECOMMENDING MULTI-LAYER INSULATION APPLICATIONS. (SEE TECHNICAL BULLETIN #00-01) ***

3.3 CLEANING / PROTECTION

  • A. Remove trash and construction debris from insulation surface prior to application of roofing membrane.
  • B.Do not leave installed insulation exposed to weather. Cover and waterproof with completed roof system immediately after installation.
    • 1. Temporarily seal exposed insulation edges at the end of each day.
      2. Remove and replace installed insulation that has become wet or damaged with new insulation.
  • C. Protect installed insulation and roof cover from traffic by use of protective covering materials during and after installation.
