Tectum is an acoustical wood fiber product composed of aspen wood fibers bonded with an inorganic hydraulic cement. The panels are extremely durable and environmentally friendly. When used as a structural roof panel, they provide a finished ceiling and excellent Noise Reduction Coefficients (NRC). The roof panels come in a variety of types, including Structural Insulated Panels (SIP) with spans up to 12′-0″.
Tectum Tile is used with 218 bulb-tee steel subpurlins to increase the span and diaphragm capacity of the deck. The rabbeted edges of Tectum tile rest on the steel tee flanges of the 218 bulb-tees. The space between the tile and bulb-tees, are filled with gypsum grout for excellent anchorage and wind uplift resistance. When used on low-slope applications, this is an excellent substrate for an insulating concrete roof system.
The Tectum E is a composite of 1-1/2” or thicker Tectum substrate, EPS insulation, and 7/16” OSB board bonded with code-listed structural adhesives. Tectum E panels are typically used in sloped applications where insulation and a nailable surface are required.
The Tectum III is a composite of 1-1/2” or thicker Tectum substrate, Styrofoam brand insulation and 7/16” OSB board bonded with code-listed structural adhesives. Tectum III panels are typically used in sloped applications where insulation and a nailable surface are required.
Tectum IIIP Roof Deck is made of the same components as Tectum III roof deck panels, but with an edge spline detail specifically designed for use over high-humidity applications such as swimming pools and ice arenas. The spline, when properly sealed with urethane adhesive, provides for a continuous vapor retarder from panel to panel in all directions.
