Armstrong’s Tectum roof-deck panels are engineered to provide insulation and acoustic control of up to 0.6 NRC. They have a surface that accepts nails and is compatible with a wide range of roofing materials. This IIIW version is Miami-Dade NOA–approved, making it suitable for hurricane-prone regions.
This high-density roof component utilizes Atlas Roofing’s own ACFoam polyisocyanurate material bonded to glass, resulting in a single-layer roof-deck coverboard that offers insulation as well as fire resistance when combined with a combustible wood substructure. The boards are available in two formats: 4' square or 4' x 8', both 5/8" thick.
Century Shake and LudoSlate
Ludowici’s terra-cotta roof tiles realistically simulate authentic timber and slate with the characteristic pressed grooves and variegated colors of the former and textures of the latter. LudoSlate tiles come in a dozen hues, while the Century shakes come in seven. Both are best suited to residential and light-commercial projects.
Custom-designed and -built, OpenAire’s retractable roofs accommodate options such as telescoping and arched overhangs. Shown (above) on a Hyatt House in Jersey City, NJ, these systems help create flexible indoor/outdoor spaces, particularly desirable in a time when fresh air is required.
Rheinzink has added two gray finishes to its Granum architectural-grade zinc roofing and cladding products: dark Basalte and a lighter Skygrey—complementary to the aesthetics of both commercial and residential jobs. These recyclable products are composed of a zinc alloy that will naturally patinate to blue-gray hues.
