STRATEX Warm Roof System
The cold liquid approach to warm roof systems
STRATEX from KEMPER SYSTEM is an integrated warm roof that offers exceptional performance and is supplied as a complete system of matched components from one of the world’s leading roof waterproofing manufacturers. The STRATEX Warm Roof System is a cold liquid applied roofing system that contains elements to promote warmth and can be applied to both new and existing buildings. Although applied cool, the liquid membrane is formed of three key elements to creating a warm deck roof. These are a vapour barrier, warm roof insulation and waterproofing.
Its unique KEMPERTHERM® tongue and groove insulation board and KEMPEROL® wet-on-wet cold liquid applied waterproofing create a warm roof system that is easily specified, fully tested and approved, and totally reliable.
STRATEX is an engineered system comprising all the elements for a warm roof specification - vapour barrier, insulation and waterproofing.
The STRATEX Warm roof system can be laid on a range of roofing materials such as timber, concrete and metal to maximise the potential and effectiveness of the STRATEX warm roof to a variety of roof materials. This roofing option is suitable for green roof projects to promote and protect the environment. This warm roof system is also usable on balconies and terraces and is installed by approved contractors to deliver a desirable outcome. The interlocking insulation ensures a smooth and rigid finish to the roof surfaces that are capable of a range of surface finishes including green roof or terrace/balcony with reinforced boards available to support the additional needs.
STRATEX can be installed over common substrates, like concrete, timber or metal decks, whilst being equally suited to new build or refurbishing or upgrading thermal insulation on existing roofs.
STRATEX is only installed by warm roof construction contractors trained and approved by Kemper System.
