W. R. MEADOWS was proud to take part in this solar panel project at the Lehigh County Government Center in Allentown, PA. The engineer, Atlantic Energy Concepts, consulted with us about what product would be appropriate for this application. Atlantic Energy Concepts had several projects involving a variety of roofing materials – including EPDM, bituminous, and silver coating – in which they were installing solar panels on top of metal trays that are held to the roof by the weight of cinder blocks. They wanted to put the trays on top of a protective pad in order to prevent damage to the roof materials.
After discussing their needs with salespeople Judy Thompson and Tanya Ritter, the engineer decided to use our DUO-PAD roof traffic and vibration pad. DUO-PAD is composed of reprocessed rubber and selected bonding agents to provide tough, durable, and impact-absorbent panels compatible with current popular roofing adhesives. DUO-PAD was developed to meet the ever-increasing popularity of the many single-ply roofing systems plus the desire of many in the industry to use rubber-to-rubber roof walkways. DUO-PAD is equally effective for built-up roofs. DUO-PAD offers the same positive protection and safety for the roofing system as does our WHITEWALK, when used to provide a designated “safe” area for maintenance traffic.
Again, W. R. MEADOWS was proud to be a part of this green project and we anticipate using DUO-PAD in solar panel roofing projects for years to come.
