ProTherm RockFace A2 Non-Combusitble External Upstand Board is used to thermally insulate and protect upstand walls in inverted flat roof systems. Fire tested and classified Euroclass A2-s1,d0 to BS EN13501-1:2108 by WarringtonFire under classification report no.19808F dated 10 10 2019. Building Regulation Approved Document B volume 1 – dwellings and volume 2 – non-dwellings compliant solution for buildings over 18m high in England. Technical Handbook – domestic Annex 2.C and Technical Handbook – non-domestic Annex 2.F compliant solution for buildings over 11m high in Scotland.
Manufactured with non-combustible Stonewool factory laminated to a 6mm thick weather resistant high impact calcium silicate fibre cement facing board, ProTherm RockFace A2 will not develop smoke or promote flame spread, even when directly exposed to fire. It also repels and drains away water completely drying out while maintaining its original physical properties. The calcium silicate fibre cement facing board is BBA certificated (BBA certificate No. 21/5983) and independently tested and classified as Category A for external use in accordance with EN 12467:2012. Available in a range of thicknesses, see declared performance table for available thickness.
ProTherm RockFace A2 is a non-combustible, fire tested, insulated external upstand board for use on inverted flat roofs and balconies. ProTherm RockFace A2 is not intended to provide a final architectural/aesthetic finish as the cementitious facing may vary in colour from batch to batch. To achieve a consistent aesthetic finish the Cement Particle Board (CP Board) facing can be primed and decorated with an appropriate masonry paint or render finish.
ProTherm RockFace A2 has a Zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP), a Global Warming Potential (GWP). For use with Inverted roofing waterproofing such as PermaQuik PQ6100, EshaFlex, EshaUniversal and ParaFlex.
Certificates: ISO 9001@2008 Quality Management System, ISO 14001 :2004 Environmental Management System.
Install ProTherm RockFace A2 upstand board after completion of the PermaQuik PQ6100 or EshaFlex inverted roofing system.
ProTherm RockFace A2 upstand board is bonded to the waterproofing using an INSTA-STIK bead it is also trapped at the base by the horizontal ProTherm insulation board. As long as the ProTherm RockFace A2 upstand boards are well protected no additional attachment method is required unless the ProTherm RockFace A2 upstand board is more than 3 times the height of the horizontal ProTherm insulation board.
Where the ProTherm RockFace A2 is more than 3 times the height of the horizontal ProTherm insulation board, and less than 750mm in height, the ProTherm RockFace A2 upstand board must be trapped at the base by the horizontal ProTherm insulation board and have continuous retention across the top face of the board.
Where the ProTherm RockFace A2 Board exceeds 750mm above the roof finishes and is trapped at the base by the horizontal ProTherm insulation board the ProTherm RockFace A2 Board must be either:
• Bonded with INSTA-STIK Roofing Adhesive applied in 19-25 mm beads at 300mm centres for the full height of the ProTherm RockFace A2 Board AND have a single DDS fixings (or equal approved) installed through the centre of the ProTherm RockFace A2 Board a minimum of 75mm from the top of the ProTherm RockFace A2 Board.
• Mechanically fixed directly to the upstand wall at 600mm centres using Speedline DDS fixings (or equal approved).
• Where it is necessary to cut ProTherm RockFace A2 upstand board to size use a TCT saw (suitable PPE must be used including a face mask to guard against dust).
