FR-10 Installation Instructions
Atlas Fire Retardant Slipsheets are lightweight, easy to handle and, therefore, quicker to install than thermal barriers or coverboards. The slipsheet should be rolled out, overlapping the side and end of the preceding sheet a minimum of two (2) inches. Consult the membrane manufacturer for specific application recommendations (e.g., slipsheet roll direction perpendicular to membrane roll). Mechanical attachment of the slipsheet is not needed in most applications. The patented coating generally provides enough weight to anchor the sheet until the membrane is installed. Mechanical or adhesive attachment may be necessary under windy conditions. Install only as much slipsheet as can be covered by the end of the day.
Factory-applied packaging is intended solely for protection during transit. When stored outdoors or on the job site, the slipsheet rolls should be stacked on pallets at least four inches above ground level and completely covered with a weatherproof covering such as a tarpaulin.
