RENOLIT ALKORBRIGHT roofing membrane is installed in a similar way to RENOLIT ALKORPLAN F and RENOLIT ALKORPLAN A roofing membranes. Please consult the brochure for RENOLIT ALKORPLAN F or RENOLIT ALKORPLAN A for installation guidelines. The pitch must be not less than 30 mm/m as standard. Where the membrane is installed in combination with photovoltaic panels, a pitch of 60 mm/m is recommended in order for the reflection from the roofing membrane to be exploited to the full.
Since the mass pigmentation of RENOLIT ALKORBRIGHT roofing membrane is white, the roof area has no grey welding seams. Following installation, a RENOLIT ALKORBRIGHT therefore has a homogeneous white appearance. Roofs installed with roofing membranes the substrate of which is not white will firstly have a reduced solar reflectance, and secondly a less attractive appearance following installation.
Owing to its protective layer, RENOLIT ALKORBRIGHT roofing membrane can be cleaned more easily with clean water.
RENOLIT ALKORBRIGHT roofing membrane can be installed on the roof by means of either mechanical fastenings (RENOLIT ALKORBRIGHT F) or bonding (RENOLIT ALKORBRIGHT A). For this purpose, the RENOLIT ALKORBRIGHT range is available with versions with woven polyester reinforcement and with polyester nonwoven backing respectively.
RENOLIT ALKORBRIGHT roofing membrane has been included by the CRRC in its list of solar reflecting materials. The CRRC (Cool Roof Rating Council) is an independent US organization which maintains an objective list of all materials which reflect sunlight.
At 91%, RENOLIT ALKORBRIGHT's reflectance is the highest of any roofing membrane. For more information, visit www.coolroofs.org.
