Sika creates new roof deck system

Sika Corp., Canton, Mass., is partnering with All-Weather Insulated Panels, Vacaville, Calif., to offer a new roof deck system.

The Insulated Roof Deck system will consist of All-Weather Insulated Panels’ OneDek® insulated roof deck panel and Sika’s Sarnafil PVC roof membrane. The OneDek system incorporates RD1 or RD1-M flat insulated roof deck panels to create a single component to encompass the steel deck, insulation, air/vapor barrier and substrate necessary for field application of the membrane on low-slope roof systems. The Insulated Roof Deck system is an alternative to traditional roof system assemblies and reportedly eliminates a structural steel deck and multiple layers of polyisocyanurate board insulation. System benefits include enhanced performance, improved sustainability and an overall reduction in lead times.
