Träullit Roof Element
Natural roof constructions for buildings with high demands on esthetics and function
Träullit Roof Element is a load-bearing roof construction with Träullit wood wool panels, additional insulation, and waterproofing with sheet metal, roof tiles, or sedum. The roof elements are reinforced with round timber for a greater carrying capacity. The product offers excellent sound absorption, making it a very time and cost-efficient option since an integrated acoustic solution is provided in conjunction with the installation of the roof construction.
Träullit Roof Element is a natural and organic roof construction that uncompromisingly combines a beautiful esthetic with functionality, providing a comfortable indoor climate with longevity. It is an excellent product for schools, libraries, sports venues, natatoriums, and other larger, open-plan premises.
Träullit Roof Element offers excellent sound absorption, making it a very time and cost-efficient option since an integrated acoustic solution is provided in conjunction with the installation of the roof construction. Träullit Roof Element creates a restful acoustic atmosphere without requiring additional installing of sound insulation or acoustic panels. The product has a porous and airy surface structure that can be painted repeatedly without impeding its sound-absorbing attributes.
Natural climate control qualities
Träullit Roof Element is, with its open surface structure, exceptional in balancing the relative humidity in the ambient air. The mineral bonded wood wool has the inherent ability to absorb moisture in the air without condensation. This moisture buffering characteristic works like natural climate control, enhancing the indoor climate and lowering energy costs as it reduces fluctuations in the room temperature. This is of great significance for the health and well-being of the individuals who populate these areas, especially in wet rooms, bedrooms, classrooms, sports venues, and other premises that are particularly subjected to high levels of activity and humidity.
Excellent heat accumulation
Träullit Roof Element combines low heat conductivity with high material density, resulting in excellent heat accumulation. The product stores heat which is emitted when the air temperatures fall — delays of up to 13 hours have been confirmed. This contributes to lower energy costs, reduced environmental impact, and a consistent, comfortable indoor climate without fluctuations in air temperature.
Normal och Special load-carrying capacities
Träullit Roof Element is available in two options, Normal and Special, with different maximum load-carrying capacities. The normal option has a loading occupancy, regardless of roofing, of 2,6 kN/m² of evenly distributed load. It handles snow load zone 3 and form factor <0,9. The special option is more heavily reinforced and offers up to twice the load-carrying capacity of Roof Element Normal, with a loading occupancy of 5,3 kN/m².
Träullit Roof Element meets the load-carrying requirements of BBR and BKR. It is type-approved in accordance with 3173/79 and is fall-through tested.
