DTA 5/15-2436 “Polydan jardin“.
POLYDAN 50/GP ELAST. GREEN GARDEN is a bituminous membrane for use as a top layer membrane in roof waterproofing systems in:
- flat roofs in green roof (extensive planting) specifications, and
- flat roofs in roof garden (intensive planting) specifications.
|Rolls per pallet||25||rolls|
|Product Code ||141215 Green||-|
- SBS modified bitumen
- non-woven polyester felt
- polyethylene film
Instruction for use
- Deck surfaces must be dry, clean and free from sharp projections such as nail heads and concrete nibs.
- When bonding the substrate should be prepared using a primer either Impridan 100, Curidan, Maxdan or Maxdan Caucho at the recommended rate prior to installation of the waterproofing system.
- The membrane may be laid in conditions normal to roofing work and must not be laid in rain, snow or heavy fog, nor if the temperature falls below 5ºC, unless precautions against condensation have been taken.
- The roofing layers must always be installed with staggered overlaps and in such a manner that no counter-seams in the direction of the outlets are made.
- Soil or other bulk material should not be stored on one area of the roof prior to installation, to ensure that localized overloading does not occur.
- The first layer of the waterproofing system is installed either fullt bonded, partially bonded or loose-laid.
- Fully bonded torch-applied membranes should only be used with non-combustible substrates and with surfaces designed to enable the torch application of subsequent layers.
- When partially bonded either a layer of GLASDAN 800 P PERFORADO or other suitable venting layer is loose-laid across the substrate edge to edge before applying the first layer.
-In loose laid systems a separating layer is installed over the substrate with overlaps of 100 mm. Then the first layer is loose-laid over the separation layer.
- The POLYDAN 50/GP ELAST. GREEN GARDEN is laid over the first layer in the same direction, and fully bonded. The top layer is installed with side laps a minimum of 60 mm and end laps 100 mm wide.
- Laps between the membrane and any base sheets should be offset by a minimum of 300 mm.
- Bonding is achieved by melting the lower surface by torching and pressing the membrane down. Care must be taken not to overheat the membrane.
- It is imperative that the drainage system of the green roof or roof garden is designed correctly, and provision is made for access for maintenance purposes. Inspection of the drains should be carried out regularly to avoid waterlogging of the garden and the subsequent increase in dead weight load.
- Where there is a run-off from a large sill or gully onto the roof surface, the build-up of silt may allow the germination of seeds, therefore this type of detail should be avoided. Any growth occurring will be restricted and will not normally affect the performance of the roof and will be no worse than that occurring on normal flat roofs.
Indications and Important Recommendations
- The design of the roof should be considered in relation to its compatibility with the building as a whole, and account taken of the significance of materials which may be included for other reasons.
- The roof covering, including joints, parapets, abutments, gutters and outlets, should remain weathertight under the external action of rain, snow, ice, dead and imposed loads, wind loads, solar and night radiation, and the internal environment of the building.
- Falls should be provided to enable the roof to drain towards outlets, gulleys or gutters of sufficient capacity. Gutters and roof drainage should be designed appropriately.
- As failures in flat roofs are often caused by the harmful effects of moisture which is trapped during construction, it is essential that great care be taken to minimize such risks. Trapped water may be the result of the use of wet materials, water from in-situ concrete and wet screeds, or rain on unprotected construction.
- Be careful about damage from the limited foot traffic associated with installation and maintenance operations. Reasonable care should be taken to avoid sharp objects or concentrated loads. Where regular traffic is envisaged, ie maintenance of lift equipment, a walkway should be provided.
- In the event of damage the membrane must be repaired as soon as possible with a patch of the membrane torch-bonded over the damaged area.
- It is possible that some localized loss of the mineral surfacing may occur on exposed areas of the membrane after some years particularly at complex detailing.
- Roofs should be inspected annually in autumn after leaf fall and in the spring to ensure vegetation and other debris are cleared from the roof and drainage outlets cleared..
- Differential movement between the waterproofing membrane and the substrate, or any overlaid insulation in inverted roofs, or other material should be taken into account in design. If necessary, movement joints should be made in the waterproofing membrane.
Maintenance requirements for Danosa Roofing Products
The following maintenance checks must be adhered to:
- A general examination on the condition of the waterproofing and surrounding roof components.
- An inspection of all functional roofing elements including skylights, outlets, upstands, penetrations and any other visible roofing components.
- Clean outlets, drains, gutters and remove any debris from the roof.
- Periodic removal of mildew, moss, herbs or any other kind of vegetation that has been accumulation on the waterproofing.
- Periodic removal of possible sediments accumulated on the deck (silt, sledges, slate granules, etc) by occasional water accumulation.
- Periodic removal of debris and small objects that may have accumulated on the roof.
- Ensure surrounding structural elements are sound such as eaves, flashings, slate tiles and brickwork.
- Ensure that the waterproofing is in good condition and there are no blisters, damage or separation.
- Review the condition of the waterproofing (adherence to upstands, condition of overlaps, visual appearance, etc) and repair the defects observed.
These operations must be carried out twice a year, preferably at the beginning of spring or autumn and must be increased in case of decks or valleys with zero falls. It is also necessary to perform additional maintenance depending on the type of roof, location and proximity of roofs to areas with trees or in areas with high levels of pollution.
