WARNINGS

Insulation must be protected from open flame and kept dry at all times. Install only as much insulation as can be covered the same day by completed roof covering material. Hunter Panels will not be responsible for specific building and roof design by others, for deficiencies in construction or workmanship, for dangerous conditions on the job site or for improper storage and handling. Technical specifications shown in this literature are intended to be used as general guidelines only and are subject to change without notice.

INSTALLATION

SINGLE PLY SYSTEMS

Ballasted Single-Ply Systems
Each H-Shield panel is loosely laid on the roof deck. Butt edges and stagger joints of adjacent panels. Install the roof covering according to the manufacturer’s specifications.

Mechanically Attached Single-Ply Systems
Each H-Shield panel must be secured to the roof deck with fasteners and plates (appropriate to the deck type). Butt edges and stagger joints of adjacent panels. Install the roof covering according to the manufacturer’s specifications.

Fully Adhered Single-Ply
Each H-Shield panel must be secured to the roof deck with fasteners and plates (appropriate to the deck type). Maximum 4’x4’(1220mm x 1220mm) panels of H-Shield may be adhered to a prepared concrete deck or subsequent layers of insulation with a full mopping of hot steep asphalt, insulation adhesive or cold applied mastic. Butt edges and stagger joints of adjacent panels. Install the roof covering according to the manufacturer’s specifications.


Built Up, Coal Tar And Modified Bitumen Systems
Each H-Shield panel must be secured to the roof deck with fasteners and plates (appropriate to the deck type). Maximum 4’x4’ (1220mm x 1220mm) panels of H-Shield may be adhered to a prepared concrete deck or subsequent layers of insulation with a full mopping of hot steep asphalt, insulation adhesive or cold applied mastic.
