Wind can be a roof’s biggest enemy. Sudden, strong winds cause tremendous uplift on any roofing material and threaten the integrity of an installation. The Burkeline® Vac-Q-Roof System turns the wind into a powerful tool to hold roofing systems in place.
Hypalon® is attached at the perimeter of the roof, while channels are created under the expanse of unattached membrane. At specific intervals, a specially designed, patented Vac-Q-Vent is connected to these channels to vacuum air out. When wind hits these vents, their spinning pulls air from the channels, creating a vacuum under the roofing material. The stronger the wind, the tighter the roof is pulled down.
