What is Low Slope Roof Insulation?

Low-slope roof insulation is the process performed by using insulation materials that will provide the necessary protection for the protection of low-slope roof types from all kinds of external factors and the risks that these factors may cause.

In order to prevent condensation problems that may occur on the roofs, the selection of the materials used under the roofing materials should also be treated meticulously. It is extremely important for the materials to be used in roof insulation to have a breathing, in other words, vapor permeable structure, for the roof to be healthy and long-lasting.

What are Low Slope Roof Insulation Materials?

Protan offers long-lasting and high-quality solutions for low-pitched roofs, providing robust and sustainable roofs of high technical standard in all climates. Thanks to Protan, which offers a range of high quality products for open roofs, users can easily access robust quality solutions. Protan SE, Protan EX, Protan FPO-TPO sheets can be used in low-slope roof insulation.

How Are Low Slope Roof Insulation Materials Used?

Insulation of low-pitched roofs should be directly linked to the slope of the roof. The type, application and other effects of the insulation materials are all directly related to the slope of the roof construction. It should be taken into account that the loading under the influence of the pavement will increase with the decrease of the slope.

Protan open roofs offer a range of high quality products. The products are mechanically vacuumed or fully attached to the roof structure and fixed. Roof coverings are ideal for flat and pitched roofs in new construction and renovation projects. Protan's roof coverings and membranes are reinforced and coated with PVC-P.

What are the Types of Low Slope Roof Insulation Materials?

Protan FPO-TPO covers are resistant to both atmospheric conditions and sun rays. Thermoplastic polyolefin based waterproofing membranes are polyester carriers and are combined with hot air welding. Protan FPO-TPO covers are used to provide waterproofing on light metal roofs, garden terrace roofs, concrete roofs and ready-made membrane panels.

Protan EX PVC covers, which are polyester carrier, geotextile felt laminated, PVC-based waterproofing membranes produced for roof panels, are resistant to atmospheric conditions and sunlight. It can be used in light metal roofs, especially in panel production, in addition to stream and parapet insulation, in renovation applications.

Protan SE membranes are also polyester carrier and PVC-based waterproofing membranes and are combined with hot air welding. It is used to provide waterproofing on light metal roofs, concrete roofs and garden terrace roofs as well as dome or different shaped concrete or steel roofs.

Advantages of Low Sloped Roof Insulation

Protan membranes and roof coverings can only be welded with hot air. Therefore, the process is completed safely. Building owners who choose the solutions offered by Protan thus avoid risk during installation.

The open roof membranes produced by Protan are self-extinguishing. This means that they do not aid in the spread in the event of a fire. Protan roof membranes have a textured surface that provides a non-slip surface. Compared to non-woven roofing, it can be clearly seen that this is an extremely important safety factor both during installation and maintenance.

Protan's roof coatings are resistant to high and low temperatures as well as UV rays. Thanks to its excellent tear strength, Protan products are extremely effective in preventing wind damage in areas exposed to excessive wind. In this way, Protan roof coverings are the most suitable products to be preferred in order to provide a clear advantage in severe cold weather, winter months and cold climates.
