  • with substrates of plywood or concrete slab; and,
  • situated in specific design wind pressures up to a maximum design differential ultimate limit state (ULS) of 6.0 kPa and,
  • with the weathertightness design of junctions for each specific structure being the responsibility of the building designer.

Roofs and decks waterproofed with EcoTUFF TPO Roof and Deck Membrane must be designed and constructed in accordance with the following limitations:

  • nominally flat or pitched roofs and decks constructed to drain water to gutters and drainage outlets complying with the NZBC; and,
