Heavy duty and versatile: Stabilodrain® on roofs
“Achieving the same type of landscape on a roof as on the ground“. With this principle in mind, ZinCo supplies the product Stabilodrain® SD 30 which allows for the installation of permanently reliable walkways and driveways on roofs.
The extremely robust drainage and water storage element consists of thermoformed polystyrene. It can resist pressure loads of up to 72.5 psi, and can therefore take the high loads that result from the use of cars and trucks with an overall load of up to 88,000 lbs. The product is installed with a slight interlocking overlap using special lateral studs. The underlying roof build-up is so well protected to allow wheel loaders to be driven on the roof during later construction phases.
Stabilodrain® SD 30 is also suitable for use on inverted roof constructions as its structure allows for the installation of a walkway build-up that is permeable to air and water vapor. The element height of approx. 1.3 in enables Stabilodrain® to overcome ponding water on completely flat roofs or roofs with a minimal slope; therefore, ensuring a frost-protected build-up.
If greenery is planned, the Stabilodrain® elements can simply be turned over. The studs will then face upwards and the number of troughs will increase for storing storm water.
The versatility of Stabilodrain® is enhanced with the added option of the elements acting as “permanent formwork”. A layer of foundation concrete or pressure distribution plates can be constructed on the Stabilodrain® without impairing the underlying continuous drainage.
