Some 750m2 of Ward Topdek, a combined single-ply insulated roofdeck system, was specified for the
showroom of the new Porsche dealership in Bolton.
Ward Topdek, from Ward Insulated Panels, is a factory pre-engineered composite roofdeck which allows faster on-site assembly for applications on flat, pitched or curved roofs.
Topdek comprises a single-ply PVC outer membrane, bonded to a Firesafe rigid PIR insulation core – certified by the BRE’s Loss Prevention Certification Board – and a steel, trapezoidal profile inner deck for structural strength.
The system replaces the earlier multi-stage process of laying steel decking, a vapour-control layer, insulation and the outer membrane with just one single installation.
The result is a product that is 50 per cent faster to install than traditional roofing systems. A new self-coring screw, unique to Topdek, further increases the speed of the installation process.
A further benefit of the fast and simple installation is a significant reduction in labour costs, which helped the Porsche showroom to be completed on time and to budget. The pitched section of the roof was completed with 1,000m2 of Ward DR1000 insulated panels with concealed fixing method.
