High Concrete Group LLC has introduced ThinCastTM, the thinnest precast concrete rainscreen panel available on the market. Designed for use in commercial, institutional, retail, and low- to high-rise construction, this innovation provides architects with the natural beauty and character of concrete in lightweight panels that accomplish their rainscreen design goals.
Centuries old, the roof garden concept has been most recently embraced in the United States. Both functional and aesthetically-appealing, this technology improves the structure's energy efficiency while adding plant life in populated areas.
Currently, the focus on improving the quality of life in urban environments has made these issues more pertinent than ever. Roof Gardens meet the objectives of many of the mandates to improve the air quality of cities by mitigating the effects of heat islands caused by ever increasing development. The benefits of the modern Roof Garden have been demonstrated by the US Green Building Council's endorsement of these systems through the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification program.
Carlisle's Roof Garden System provides a variety of waterproofing options with a full line of accessories to insure a high performance system. This includes a range of membranes such as the 60-mil EPDM and TPO which are ideal for the Ultra Extensive Roof Gardens (shallow) with standard 15-20 year warranties. Roof gardens 4" to 8" in depth are classified as a Medium Assembly (Extensive) requiring 75-mil EPDM or 72-mil TPO membranes for 10-15 year warranties, and 90-mil EPDM or 80-mil TPO membranes for 20 year warranties. For the Intensive Roof Gardens (deep), the membrane options include Carlisle's toughest membranes -- 90-mil EPDM, 80-mil TPO and the 115 through 145-mil FleeceBACK¨ membranes. Carlisle also offers an option to mop down the AFX FleeceBACK EPDM membranes over two plies of base felts to provide a durable hybrid system. GO>Back<
