Armoroc was installed as the structural floor and roof sheathing in this multi-story residential building in New York. Armoroc installs like plywood with carpentry tools, allowing the elimination of the wet trade and it’s associated labor and costs.
For the floors 3/4″ Armoroc was installed directly to the Marino\WARE JoistRite floor framing system. As you can see in the picture below, Armoroc is factory sealed with a white sealer on all six sides of the panel. This factory sealer protects Armoroc cement board in the event of moisture / weather exposure. Armoroc and JoistRite create a great system for any floor/roof assembly. 1 & 2-hour assemblies have been tested and MEA Approved for NYC. This system is cost effective, quick, trade-friendly and easy to install. It’s a win-win for the building owner, installer and end-user.
Armoroc was installed as the roof deck and parapet. Contractors have completed the Armoroc installation and are making final preparations for the roof finish. This was a cold-weather installation, and since Armoroc is sealed, it will remain protected from rain, snow & ice exposure. Judging by the smile, we’re guessing this contractor saved a bundle of time and money by choosing Armoroc for the structural floor & roof sheathing.
