Typical vent detail
Membrane with star cut dressed up pipe and taped into place
over the counter battens will be less advantageous when used with
a loose laid underlay with open joints being draped over the counter
batten to offer drainage below the tile batten. The ventilation below the
tile batten will not be a concern where the underlay is laid fully supported
on the insulation below the counter batten.
Where the future lies in the UK pitched roof design is subject to
debate, but the stark reality is that warm roof design offers signifi cant
benefi ts in providing an energy-effi cient warm space with increased
accommodation possibilities. However, designers need to be aware of the
subtle differences between this and the traditional cold roof design. If
these considerations are taken into account at the design stage, along with
the new technologies available, then the industry has a positive answer to
many of the questions being asked of the traditional cold roof.
