The Cellular Concrete Evolution reaches roofing applications
Some of the benefits of working with Cellular Concrete on roofing applications are related to its superior wind uplift, drainage, sustainability and, of course, it’s cost. At ARDEN LOMBARDO we use only the best materials to carry on any project. MEARLCRETE™ is a traditional protein foaming agent developed by AERIX INDUSTRIES™, the world’s leader manufacturer of foaming concentrates.
MEARLCRETE™ can be applied over non-vented substrates including existing roof membranes, galvanized vented or non-vented steel deck, precast concrete, or cast-in-place structural concrete. MEARLCRETE™ Lightweight Insulating Concrete (LWIC) placed over a metal deck can be used to enhance the shear diaphragm providing additional resistance to shear forces resulting from wind or seismic activity.
MEARLCRETE™ insulating roof decks are superior to rigid board insulation systems. MEARLCRETE™ LWIC is not subject to thermal drift or thermal bridging. The insulating values and history of performance of a MEARLCRETE™ LWIC system provides unmatched life-cycle cost and performance.
MEARLCRETE™ has excellent workability. It can be pumped over 500ft. vertically and over 1,000ft. horizontally. MEARLCRETE™ is installed by factory trained contractors who have the specialized equipment and experienced personnel to install high quality MEARLCRETE™ decks. Single source roof warranties are available when installed by an authorized MEARLCRETE™ applicator.
