1. White Membrane
- Reduces building heat-gain, as a white or reflective roof typically increases only 5–14 °C (10–25 °F) above ambient temperature during the day
- Creates 15–30% savings on summertime air conditioning expenditures
- Enhances the life expectancy of both the roof membrane and the building’s cooling equipment
2. Thermal Upgrade
Firestone ISO polyiso insulation offers high-energy efficiency through the highest R-value ratings, per inch versus other insulation materials.
- Highest R-value per inch
- Outstanding installed cost advantages
- Proven fire resistance
3. Tapered ISO
Full Tapered Systems:
Ideal for roofs without a structural slope. Full Taper Systems can be designed to offer varying degrees of drainage. Most often used in retrofit applications and roofs in new construction where structural slope is not possible. Key considerations for Full Taper Systems are reduced life cycle costs, R-value and perimeter height restrictions. Common slopes used are 1% and 2%.
Perimeter Taper Systems:
Economical method to shed water away from critical areas at parapets, walls, and mechanical units, etc. The majority of roof leak problems occur at vertical penetrations of the roof system, so it is vital to shed water from these zones. Consider widths between 4’ and 16’ with a minimum slope of 2%, for the Perimeter Taper System.
A well designed building with a good spread of natural light will benefit from passive solar gain and a reduced requirement for artificial light.
Including skylights can offer a dramatic reduction in a building’s total energy consumption and the emissions of CO2 associated with this energy use.
A naturally-lit interior will save money, provide a more pleasant environment where people want to spend time, and contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions.
Savings from skylights can cut lighting energy use by up to 75 – 80 percent.
