High Wind Applications for Roof-Top Paver Systems
October 14, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Roof top paver systems have become an integral part of commercial roofing that not only improves the energy efficiency but also increases the life expectancy of the overall roof system. Changes to codes and standards along with recent storm events have brought wind uplift to the forefront as a vital component to roof top paver systems. The industry has developed various methods for addressing wind uplift, and as a result, many factors must be considered when designing and installing roof top paver systems.
In this session, experts from Oldcastle APG & Westile will provide a review of changes to ASCE 7 and the International Building Code with regards to wind uplift and its effect on roof top paver systems. Attendees will walk away with an understanding of how roof top pavers allows greater access for roof deck areas, factors that contribute to wind uplift calculations, and methods for securing roof top pavers.
