Sika is committed to pioneering long lasting and sustainable roofing solutions to address global challenges, and to achieve this safely at the lowest impact on resources.
Sika Roofing membranes and systems are manufactured in ISO 140001 certified production facilities. Furthermore, the contribute to sustainable constrcution and they are evaluated with a fully comprehensive Life Cycle Assessment method (LCA). The following sustainability aspects are relevant for roofing systems and are systematically asssessed:
- Energy and Carbon Footprint
- High Reflectivity
- Air Protection
HOW CAN SIKA ROOFING SYSTEMS CONTRIBUTE TO SUSTAINABLE CONSTRUCTION?
Energy and resource efficiency: Sika provides rooﬁng systems that use less energy and resources in comparison with competitive technologies.
Climate protection: Sika provides rooﬁng systems with low global warming potential. This means a reduced carbon footprint.
Air quality: Sika provides low-VOC and VOC-free rooﬁng solutions that help reduce summer smog and improve health and safety conditions during the roof installation process. The low-odor performance of Sika products has been externally tested and certified.
The durability of building materials is a key to sustainable building construction. Internal and external studies document the outstanding service life of Sarnafil® and Sikaplan® roofing systems.
Saving energy: Sika solar reflective membranes help save energy by increasing the reﬂectivity and as a consequence reducing the cooling energy demand of buildings.
Saving energy: Sika rooﬁng systems can save energy by incorporating high-performance thermal insulation.
Generating energy: Sika SolaRoof® systems allow the production of energy, while Sika solar reflective membranes improve photovoltaic panel efﬁciency.
Improving the microclimate: Sika green roofing systems help improve the microclimate and mitigate the development of urban heat islands as well as help manage water runoff from roofs.
Extending service life: Sika refurbishment solutions allow extending the service life of existing roofs by using the existing buildup as a base for the new system.
