Keeping the cold out, and the warmth in
Flat roofs are a popular and common choice for larger buildings owing to the ease and speed of installation as well as the cost savings as compared with pitched roofs. A warm flat roof is defined by where the roof insulation is installed, which is always above the roof deck. As compared with a traditional flat roof installation, this approach maintains a temperature within the roof area similar to that of the rest of the building interior. While warm flat roof design has become more popular to help achieve ever stringent thermal performance, modern roof structures are often required to also provide a level of sound insulation and fire protection. As an A1-rated non-combustible material which has excellent acoustic properties, the ROCKWOOL range of warm flat roof products offers one of the best options for the UK climate and construction standards.
