Introduction to Precast Concrete Paver for Roof Deck Systems (GB)
This program will provide you with a better understanding of what kinds of paving products are available. We will discuss the different applications for pavers and the design options available to fit your project needs. Discover how the durability of architectural pavers for on grade and roof deck applications can be made beautiful and functional through a variety of designs, colors and finishes on any project. This includes breakthroughs in technology which allow for finishes that look like stone, wood, and other materials. We will also take a look at the effects of wind uplift on roof decks and how to create a safe durable deck even in hurricane prone regions. Also, we will be discussing the use of recycled materials that can be added to product make up for LEED points or simply greener thinking as well as permeable pavers.
Recognize how concrete pavers are hydraulically machine pressed to reach, meet and exceed industry standards.
Identify different applications for pressed pavers to be used either on-grade or incorporated in roof deck systems.
Explore the different installation methods available and which ones are recommended for certain use and applications.
Translate the use of precast concrete pavers for roof deck material into LEED points and illustrate where and how these points are available.
