For this elementary school, we used 3″ Tectum I long span roof decking, and then poured Lightweight Insulated Concrete (LWIC) over the Tectum deck. In a separate area of the building, we installed 1” vented metal roof deck, then poured a LWIC roof deck over the top of the metal deck.
The architect was looking for a roof system that would provide the best value over the long term for the school district. In addition, they needed an acoustical treatment to reduce noise reverberation in the space.
The Nettles Solution
In order to deal with the acoustical needs of the space, Nettles installed 3” Tectum I Long Span Roof Decking. Tectum is a durable, affordable and environmentally-friendly product with a unique look.
We installed a lightweight insulating concrete LWIC) roof deck over the Tectum in order to provide the architect and owner the desired long-term value for the school.
A LWIC roof deck system has improved performance and is a cleaner choice to preserve our environment. It will also, over time, be the more economical choice. You can learn about the advantages of a LWIC roof deck here and the advantages to roofing contractors here.
