A metal roof system is made from metal pieces or tiles and allows for lightweight, high resistance, weatherproof properties. Metal roofs are an excellent solution for buildings which implement complex forms. They are lightweight yet capable of supporting heavy weights and are simultaneously maintenance free.
Metal Roof Benefits
- Useful for closing large areas without intermediate supports
- Good weight-resistance ratio
- High ductility
- Homogeneous material that reduces human errors when applying it
- Resists structural movements of the construction
- Fast assembly, as the elements are prefabricated
- Increased wind resistance
Metal Roof Setbacks
- The high resistance of the material causes stylization problems
- They need high protection against corrosion and fire
- Higher price than reinforced concrete
- Great care of joints due to the movements of the structure
Effisus offers various solutions for supplementing metal roof perforations to prevent corrosion, leaks, and moisture build-up.
Effisus Bond FT: An ideal solution for permanently sealing flashing details on metal roofs of any type which saves time and labour with a superior long-lasting performance. Its unique elongation capacity and flexibility guarantees that it can be formed to fit irregular shapes and surfaces. Effisus Bond FT Tape consists of an uncured EPDM membrane that has been laminated to an EPDM based pressure sensitive tape adhesive, creating a proven peel & stick technology. After the curing process, the tape becomes extremely resistant to moisture, UV rays, temperature changes, and structural movements.
Effisus Stopper MR: An efficient and sustainable solution for the permanent sealing of penetrations on metal roofs, with diameters from 3 to 750mm. By combining its EPDM composition to a laminated aluminum base, the Effisus Stopper MR ensures a perfect fit to virtually any configuration on roof profiles. Its flexibility ensures absorption of roof movements or vibrations by resisting the most aggressive atmospheric conditions.
Effisus Easyrepair: An ideal system for sealing leaks on all roofs and facades which offers innovative, efficient and sustainable solutions for permanently sealing leaks. It creates a waterproof, moisture, and airtight barrier, with no additional sealing required. Effisus Easyrepair uses innovative technology with active sealants to prevent infiltration and allow for easy installation, without the need for any additional accessories or adhesives.
For Effisus, providing excellent client support is a top priority. The Effisus Technical Consultant Team provides assistance throughout the process, offering full project support every step of the way and with attention to every detail. Effisus also provides roof and facade integrated solutions for sealing, waterproofing, thermal and acoustic insulation that will generate superior building energy efficiency.
