The Spraybot from Sprayworks Equipment Group is a spray gun mounted on a motorized mobile spray machine that is designed to evenly apply coating materials to roofs and more. The spray gun oscillates, delivering a wide angle—up to 7 1/2 feet—of material to its targeted surface. The Spraybot features two DC motors, user-friendly controls, an adjustable spray-head mounting device and speed-control options. It can process approximately 5 to 50 pounds of material per minute and can operate for 8 hours on 1 gallon of gas.

Detect Leaks and Ensure Quality in Low-slope Roof Systems

Vector mapping from IR Analyzers detects leaks in low-slope roof systems.

Vector mapping from IR Analyzers detects leaks in low-slope roof systems.

Electric vector mapping from IR Analyzers is a cutting-edge technology that is redefining the art of leak detection and quality assurance in low-slope roofing and waterproofing systems. Low Voltage Vector Mapping is a method of electronic leak detection that pinpoints breaches in the roof membrane by tracing the flow of an electric current across the membrane surface. Already Europe’s most widely used method for detecting roof leaks, vector mapping is rapidly being adopted by manufacturers, contractors and specifiers in the United States.

Electronic Leak Detection eliminates the dangers and potential damage inherent in traditional flood testing. Unlike the interpretive process of water, flood, infrared or nuclear testing, vector mapping detects membrane faults directly. It is ideal for quality and warranty assurance needs, for leak testing of green (vegetative) and ballasted roofs, and for leak detection in all low-slope roofing systems in which the membrane is not electrically conductive and the deck can be electrically grounded. Even pinhole leaks invisible to the naked eye can be pinpointed with Electronic Leak Detection, and repairs can be made on the spot and immediately retested to ensure watertight results.

The expanded line of bituminous systems manufactured by Malarkey offers a more diverse product portfolio to broaden its reach in the low-slope market. Malarkey offers SBS modified and conventional bituminous low-slope roofing systems, as well as steep-slope asphalt roofing systems.

Recycled Rubber Paver Provides Thermal and Mechanical Protection to the Roof Membrane

SofTILE AP

SofTILE AP

While offering unlimited design potential, SofTILE AP provides thermal and mechanical protection to the roof membrane. This unique marriage of form and function creates effective use of outdoor spaces above offices, hotels and apartment buildings.

SofTILE AP is manufactured from recycled rubber and specially formulated binding agents, which are molded into a high-density, durable locking paver. The locking feature, coupled with resiliency and color diversity are the unique benefits that have positioned SofTILE AP as a preferred product for rooftop applications.

SofTILE AP provides a resilient, shock-absorbing trafficable surface to complement virtually any roof system application. The resiliency of the rubber composition provides a flexibility that allows automatic adjustment to accommodate minor undulations and slope variation in the surface. the rubber composition is compatible with waterproofing membranes and does not require installation of a protective layer in most situations.

Tubular Skylight Distributes Ambient Light Evenly

Solatube M74 DS Core

Solatube M74 DS Core

The Solatube M74 DS Core combines advanced dome and tube optics with a Prismatic Diffuser. It distributes ambient light evenly throughout an area, increases illumination on high wall and ceiling planes, and is ideal for floor to diffuser heights of 18 to 26 feet. The Solatube M74 DS with Amplifier pairs the core unit with the SkyVault Series Amplifier and Prismatic Diffuser. It delivers focused light across greater distances to visual task plane, reduces light high on walls and loss at the ceiling plane, and is ideal for floor to diffuser heights of 26 feet and up.

Solar Solution For Ponding Water

The Sentinel Solar Roof Pump

The Sentinel Solar Roof Pump

The Sentinel Solar Roof Pump was developed by a licensed roofing contractor and solar engineer to be a cost-effective solution for ponding water on flat roofs. Rather than re-pitching, re-decking and reroofing or installing new in-roof drains, the roof pump features smart chip technology and a proprietary solar panel to remove water from roofs continuously. The fully portable pump includes a battery backup, allowing it to pump any time of day and in any weather all year long.
