Typical Roofing Assembly

How Asphalt Shingles Are Made

The manufacturing process for glass fibre reinforced asphalt shingles has been around for many years.-

    The process starts with a tough glass fibre reinforcing membrane called a “Mat”
    Layers of High quality stabilized asphalt are applied both sides of the mat.
    Next small opaque rock granules are adhered to the asphalt.
    Crushed mineral back surfacing is applied to the back of the shingles.
    Strips of adhesive are applied to select areas to secure the shingle in severe wind.

Advantages of Glass Fibre Ashphalt Shingle Roof Systems

As a result of extensive product development over many years with proven product performance, the following roofing asssembly has evolved:

        The base of the system is the tongue and groove plywood substrate which is fixed over the trusses or rafters.
        This plywood base offers the home builder a unique opportunity to take advantage of the design and performance features of the plywood substrate over the entire roof structure. If applied in accordance with the Australian Building Codes, the structural benefits include cost and thermal savings, vermin and pest exclusion and durability against impacts such as hail, storms and falling branches.
        Laid over the ply is the shingle underlayment. This provides a membrane under the shingles and in roof valleys.  A second membrane for use in valleys provides additional waterproofing and is specially formulated to resist high temperatures, and has a tear resistant film and adhesive bottom surface.
        An important design consideration is the proper ventilation of the roof space. The roof is virtually sealed by the plywood sheeting over the rafters. Adequate air flow is needed from the wall cavity or eaves to or near the roof ridge line.

The roof shingles as selected can now be applied together with the appropriate ventilation, ridge capping and ancillary roof flashing.

This system provides a roof with the following characteristics:

        Weather Resistance -  Resistant to sunlight heat, cold, water, Ice and hail
        Fire Resistance – The Roof Shingles imported from North America have a rating to ASTM standard test  methods for Roof covering (USA).
        Wind Resistance Glass – Fibre reinforced asphalt shingles are self sealing to ensure the shingles are highly resistant to strong winds.
        Ease of Application -  Asphalt shingles are considered to be the easiest of all roofing material to apply.
        Adaptability -  Due to their flexibility, strength and water tightness of the system, asphalt roofing can be applied to a wide variety of roof styles including contemporary, modern or traditional.

Systems Specifications

The glass reinforced asphalt is specially formulated to provide long term stability under severe service conditions. The weather resistant mineral granules on the surface shield the asphalt from the sun, adds colour and assists in fire resistance. They are usually manufactured in a sheet 915mm long by 305mm or 350 wide (depending on the style) and overlapped during installation to expose a 3 tab sheet of 915mm x 130mm. There are 26 sheets per pack which cover 3.1sq meters.

The sheets are fixed through the underlayment to the plywood by stainless steel flat head nails.  After laying, the factory-applied thermoplastic adhesive material backing is activated by the suns’ warmth to secure the shingle.
