Flat Roofs

The Need for Rainwater Outlets

Contents

Over the past few years, there have been major advances and improvements in the materials used in modern roofing technology. The specifier now has renewed confidence to take full advantage of the benefits of a flat roof and low pitched roof design concept.

Any flat area needs careful design to ensure efficient removal of surface water. Traditionally, water from a flat roof or other structure is channelled by way of a slope to a rainwater pipe. Leaks can often occur at the junction of the membrane and the rainwater pipe.

Hydraulic Design

Flat roofs allow greater planning and design flexibility - roof-top gardens, terracing, patios, car parks, building services and ventilation equipment, delivery areas and provision for adding additional storeys at a later date. All can be accommodated in a flat roof design.

To overcome this potential problem, ACO Fulbora rainwater outlets provide a watertight joint between the membrane and the outlet by mechanically clamping the membrane to the sump unit. Tried and tested for over 40 years, ACO Fulbora outlets have been used successfully on all types of flat roof construction.

Extensive or irregular shaped buildings can be roofed more quickly, easily and cost effectively than a pitched roof.

Flat roofs allow easy access to natural light and because of the simple construction, internal partitioning is easy. This is especially advantageous for commercial or industrial buildings.

Overview

Flow Rate Calculation

The following notes are intended as a guide to the specifier who is designing a rainwater drainage system for a roof. It is recommended that reference is made to British Standard BS EN 12056 : 2000 Gravity Drainage Systems Inside Buildings - Part 3 : Roof drainage, layout and calculation for a comprehensive design guide.

Rainfall intensity has a direct impact on the performance requirements of any rainwater drainage system. For roofs and paved areas, it is normally impracticable to guard against very infrequent, extremely heavy rainfall situations and so the designer should aim to strike a balance between the cost of the drainage system, the risk category of the building and the frequency and subsequent consequences of flooding.

The flow rate Q, from roofs, paved areas and vertical walls and surfaces is calculated as follows and assumes that all surfaces are impermeable:

The drainage system for roofs and paved areas should be capable of coping with the intense rainfall that accompanies summer thunderstorms.

A = Effective catchment area (m²)

For any rainwater drainage system to work effectively and reliably, due account must be taken of the following considerations: ■

Geographical location

Rainfall intensity

Effective catchment area of roof

Risk category of building

Hydraulic capacity of the drainage system(s) employed

The UK experiences complex and varied rainfall patterns. For example, surprisingly, although the upland areas of northern and western parts of the British Isles experience higher average annual rainfall than the lowland areas, the lowland areas experience more frequent and more intense short duration rainfall than the upland areas. British Standard BS EN 12056 : 2000 may be referred to for further information and guidance on this topic. A rainfall intensity of 75 mm/hr (0.02 l/s/ m2) is used throughout this design catalogue.

I = Rainfall intensity (75 mm/hr)

ACO f u l b o r a Rainwater engineering

Pitched Roofs

Flat Roofs & Paved Areas

The effective catchment area of a freely exposed pitched roof draining to an eaves or parapet wall gutter is equal to the plan area of the roof plus half its maximum elevation area.

For a monopitch flat roof or paved area with a freely exposed horizontal surface, the effective catchment area is equal to the plan area of the area to be drained as shown below:

Design Considerations

Catchment Area B = a x b (m²)

All linear dimensions in metres. Figure 2. Monopitch Flat Roof Catchment Area A = (f x l) + (g/2 x l) (m²) = l(f + g/2) (m²)

All linear dimensions in metres. Figure 1. Pitched Roof

For a flat roof with a dual pitch, split the roof up into discrete areas to isolate the catchment areas as follows:

Catchment Area C = c x d (m²) Catchment Area D = c x e (m²)

Effective Catchment Area of Roofs

Flat Roofs & Paved Areas with Adjacent Vertical Surfaces

Design Considerations

Flat roofs or paved areas that are adjacent to vertical walls and/or glazed surfaces will be subjected to an increased hydraulic load due to the effects of wind driven rain against these vertical surfaces and subsequently running off onto the roof.

Similarly, for a flat roof exposed to two or more vertical walls forming an angle or bay, the assumed resulting wind direction requires that the combined areas of the walls should be considered together as follows:

For a flat roof exposed to a single wall as shown in Figure 4, assume the effective catchment area to be half the exposed vertical area of the wall and is shown as follows:

Roof Catchment Area B = a x b (m²) Vertical Wall Catchment Area E = a x H/2 (m²) Vertical Wall Catchment Area F = b x h/2 (m²) Total Catchment Area = (a x b) + ½√ (E²+ F² - 2F x Cos θ) (m²)

Practical Design Tips When designing an engineered rainwater scheme, the following design hints are suggested:

Always allow for a back-up outlet, even though only one outlet may be required.

Rainwater outlets should be inspected and cleaned at least every 6 months to ensure reliable and continuous operation.

Do not design for the maximum outlet hydraulic capacity, allow a 10% factor of safety margin for intense storms and leaf/debris blockage.

ACO f u l b o r a Rainwater engineering

HP Range Description The ACO Fulbora HP range of rainwater outlets provides a comprehensive selection of high performance rainwater outlet solutions for most domestic, industrial and commercial applications involving flat roofs, balconies and terracing.

Reduced Installation Costs At the centre of the vortex, a void is naturally formed as the water spirals through the outlet. Under these conditions, both water and air are drawn into the outlet significantly reducing efficiency. For maximum flow rate efficiency, only water should enter the outlet. This may result in the use of fewer outlets for a given installation.

High Flow Rate

HP Range

Advanced design features encourage a higher flow rate of water through the outlet compared to conventional systems by reducing the amount of air that is drawn into the outlet. If allowed to go unchecked, a vortex will form as the water enters the outlet - the same effect can be seen in the bath or a sink when the plug is removed.

Product Features

12

Cost effective drainage solution - high flow rates minimises number of outlets required.

Secure grating to prevent vandalism and theft.

Comprehensive product range for most applications.

Durable, corrosion resistant construction.

Gun-metal optionally available.

The ACO Fulbora HP range of outlets provide anti-vortex design features to minimise this effect and a twofold design approach is adopted to achieve this. On all circular domed gratings an inverted cup arrangement is integrated within the grating to breakdown the vortex effect within the grating and in addition, the leaf guard geometry of the gratings is optimised to encourage water to flow radially into the outlet, thereby minimising the vortex effect outside of the grating.

Compared to conventional outlets, high performance outlets mean either fewer outlets/pipe/groundworks with reduced installation costs, or greater security in extreme rainfall conditions.

Secure Gratings All gratings for the HP range of products are secured with stainless steel fixings that require either a socket wrench or spanner for removal and replacement. This provides additional security to prevent theft or vandalism.

ACO f u l b o r a Rainwater engineering

Membrane Clamp The roof membrane is positively secured into the outlet body by a clamp and is secured by 2 stainless steel fixings. The membrane clamp is serrated on the underside for improved membrane clamp grip performance. The outlet design ensures the integrity of the seal between the clamp and body is not disturbed when the grating is removed for maintenance during the life of the installation.

HP Refurbishment Outlet

HP Vertical Screw Outlet

HP Range

The balcony outlet provides discrete safe drainage for balconies and walkways. Supplied complete with a D-shaped flat grating, the outlet can be installed against a wall. The grating is supplied with holes to receive either 50 mm, 75 mm or 100 mm nominal bore rainwater downpipes. These are easily cut on site to suit the application. Screwed outlets are recommended where connection to the outlet occurs within the thickness of the slab and threaded connections will form a completely gastight seal. Vertical screw outlets have a female parallel thread to BS 21 : 1985 for connecting directly to tubes conforming to BS 1387 : 1985 which is supplied with a taper male thread. This ensures a completely watertight seal when screwed fully home into the outlet body. A range of PVC adaptors are available from ACO Fulbora to allow connection to aluminium pipework, socketed and socketless cast iron pipework and PVC pipework.

HP Two-Way Screw Outlet

The two-way outlet is designed to be used at the junction of roofs and parapet walls, or wherever a horizontal and vertical surface meet. Available to fit pipe sizes of 50 mm, 75 mm and 100 mm. This flexible design of outlet allows either horizontal or vertical outflow take-off. Pipework connections as per vertical screw details.

When an existing flat roof is being upgraded, the refurbishment outlet is designed to fit inside the existing outlet and pipework with minimal disruption without the need to remove the original outlet. The aluminium body incorporates a wide fixing flange to enhance the bond with roofing membranes and does not suffer the distortion effects during the application of torched membranes. Outlets are supplied with a flexible finned pipe seal ensuring a watertight connection to existing pipework. The ease of use and minimal disruption to the existing rainwater system makes this an extremely cost effective solution when upgrading flat roofs.

A wide range of accessories is available for the ACO Fulbora HP range of rainwater outlets allowing easy installation in common and not so common applications of roof construction, including warm and inverted roofs, terraces and concealed outlets under raised paving slabs.

Raising Rings

PVC Adaptors

Deck Supports

Raising rings are used where it is necessary to raise the level of the dome grating above the outlet body, for example an inverted roof construction. With the exception of the Balcony Outlets (HP-BO) and Gully Outlets (HP-GO), raising rings will only accept dome gratings or Terrace Grates as the raising rings will not accept the standard flat grates.

PVC adaptors are available for threaded outlets - HP Vertical Screw (HP-TD); and HP Two-Way (HP-2W) systems. PVC adaptors provide a quick and convenient connection to standard PVC pipework.

Deck supports are used where ACO Fulbora HP rainwater outlets are installed in metal deck roof constructions, providing a stable and secure interface between the outlet and roof. Deck Supports are manufactured from 1.5 mm steel sheet and finished primed in a red oxide paint finish. Suitable for all types of metal deck roofing.

Raising rings are easily cut with a hacksaw on site if required to match installation requirements, i.e. to suit paving slabs. Stainless steel extension fixings are supplied with each raising ring. Raising rings are also available for Balcony Outlets and Gully Outlets. All raising rings are manufactured from LM6 aluminium alloy to BS 1490 and are optionally available in gun metal to BS 1400. Suffix sales code with ‘GM’ for this option.

24

The adaptors are suitable for connection to all types of pipe systems including cast iron socketed or socketless systems and are assembled using PTFE tape to ensure a watertight connection. Manufactured from tough PVC-u, the adaptors are supplied with a male thread and chamfered spigot for easy connection to PVC pipes. PVC adaptors are suitable for direct connection to: ■

ACO Fulbora FreeDeck Drainage System Description The ACO Fulbora FreeDeck linear deck drainage system is ideal for efficient, practical solutions to above ground drainage applications involving block pavior, paving slab, shingle and washed ballast surface finishes for flat roof terraces, decks, balconies, patios and roof gardens.

For the effective catchment of rainwater run-off and the management of percolation within building substrates. Rainwater penetrating the deck via paving slabs, block paviors or granular finishes are intercepted by the ACO Fulbora FreeDeck channel system which effectively conducts surface water to accessible outlet positions.

Channels available in 500, 1000 and 2000 mm lengths.

FreeDeck

ACO Fulbora FreeDeck channels are simply located directly on top of the water proofing layer and are laid to level invert. In addition to surface run-off, percolating water is able to enter the slotted sidewalls of the channel system and track through concealed ducts to rainwater outlet positions. Rainwater outlets are top accessible by means of finish level meshed gratings formed around the outlet positions. Either slotted or mesh gratings are available depending upon positioning of the channels and the nature of the foot traffic in the areas to be drained. For example in front of doorways, at the top of stairways or as perimeter drainage against parapet walls. The system is manufactured from hotdipped galvanised steel to BS 729 and provided with slotted or mesh gratings to suit pedestrian FACTA Load Class A applications.

Slotted or mesh gratings available.

Tunnel channels available for interconnecting components.

General Installation Notes

ACO f u l b o r a Rainwater engineering

Appendix 1 Material Selection Overview This section includes a brief insight into the materials that the rainwater drainage products featured in this Product Catalogue and Design Guide are manufactured from.

Appendices

In certain applications, it is vital to understand the long term operational effects that will occur if products are not specified accurately or installed correctly.

Aluminium Alloys

Gun-metal

Galvanic Corrosion

Aluminium alloys are very common and can be found in a wide range of applications ranging from cooking utensils to spacecraft. The material is commercially available in excess of 99% purity and is used primarily for its high resistance to corrosion, lightness and strength.

Gun metal possesses good tensile strength and corrosion resistant properties and is used in many bearing and marine applications. ACO Fulbora rainwater outlets are available in gunmetal when bi-metallic corrosion resistance arising from lead or copper materials is a potential risk.

Galvanic corrosion occurs when two dissimilar metals are in electrical contact and connected by an electrolyte. An electrolyte conducts electricity and can be water solutions containing salts or acids - and need not be concentrated for the effect to take place.

Comparing similar products, aluminium alloys weigh around one-third as much as equivalent mild steel and stainless steel products and compared to mild steel, they have a much better corrosion resistance to atmospheric conditions.

Gun-metal is an alloy of copper, tin and zinc. Admiralty gun-metal typically has a composition of 88% copper, 10% tin and 2% zinc.

Because aluminium alloys are strong, lightweight, have good corrosion resistance, are cost effective and have excellent casting properties, this material is an obvious first choice for rainwater outlets and floor gullies. Additionally, being non-magnetic, aluminium will not attract ferrous particles that could otherwise cause silt traps and long term maintenance issues.

Mild steel is a convenient, ductile, easily worked and cost effective material that finds many uses in everyday applications around us.

ACO Fulbora aluminium rainwater outlets, shower drains and floor drains use LM6 grade aluminium alloy to BS 1490. LM6 exhibits excellent resistance to corrosion in both atmospheric and marine environments compared to other aluminium alloys, and is resistant to sulphate attack for curing concrete.

Galvanising is a process that is commonly used to prevent corrosion and essentially consists of a layer of zinc applied to the surface of the steel. ACO Fulbora use a ‘hot dip’ process of dipping the component into a vat of molten zinc.

When exposed to the atmosphere, a thin invisible aluminium oxide film forms on the surface of the material that protects the material from further oxidation.

36

Galvanised Mild Steel

In its raw state, mild steel offers no resistance to corrosion and quickly forms a familiar rust (ferric oxide) on its surface unless precautions are taken to prevent oxidation taking place.

The effects of galvanic corrosion begin to play an important part when an aluminium rainwater outlet is used in conjunction with metallic membranes, such as lead or copper. The Electromotive Series provides an insight to the corrosion effects between dissimilar materials.

ACO f u l b o r a Rainwater engineering

The Electromotive Series The susceptibility of different metals to corrosion whilst in contact with each other depends upon the difference between the contact potentials. The greater the potential difference, the greater the tendency for corrosion. The metal with the higher negative potential forms the anode and is corroded preferentially. Some examples from the Electromotive Series are shown opposite for illustration.

Titanium 304 Stainless Steel (passivated) Silver Nickel Copper Gun-metal Lead Cast Iron Aluminium Zinc Magnesium

More noble decreased corrosion

Less noble increased corrosion

Material Selection Tips For applications when dissimilar materials are in contact with each other wherever possible, select materials to be as close as possible to each other in the Electromotive Series. For example, if a roof is copper clad, select a gun-metal outlet as gun-metal is around 88% copper, this closely matches the cladding material.

â– 

Where dissimilar metals cannot be readily avoided, care must be taken to electrically insulate the adjacent materials. For example where lead is dressed into an aluminium alloy outlet, carefully paint the aluminium body and clamp components with good quality bitumen paint or use an insulating gasket material such as neoprene sponge. Ideally, a gun-metal outlet should be used in conjunction with lead clad roofs.

â– 

The effects of galvanic corrosion can be accelerated in saline environments. Caution should be observed with rainwater outlet applications close to coastal regions.

Appendix 3 Installation Guidelines General Installation Notes All outlets must be securely attached to the roof structure using a suitable timber frame or deck support. The waterproof membrane must be fully dressed into the outlet body and securely clamped under the membrane clamp. Practical Design/Installation Tips

Balcony Outlets

Do not design for the maximum outlet hydraulic capacity, allow a 10% factor of safety margin for intense storms and leaf/debris blockage.

The flat grating is configured with an array of eccentric grating slots that can be readily cut on site with a hacksaw to accommodate a downpipe.

Always allow for a back-up outlet, even though only one outlet may be required.

Mk 3 Raising Rings

Rainwater outlets should be inspected and cleaned at least every 6 months to ensure reliable and continuous operation.

Threaded Outlets For all ACO Fulbora threaded outlets (HP Vertical Screw and Two-Way outlets) are provided with female parallel threads conforming to BS 21:1985 for direct connection of threaded tube conforming to BS 1387:1985. This tube is supplied with a taper male thread conforming to BS 21:1985, which ensures a watertight joint when fully screwed into the unit. Threaded outlets are particularly recommended where a connection to the outlet is made within the thickness of the concrete slab. In these applications, the threaded connection creates a completely watertight seal. Where a PVC-u screw thread connector (STC) is used in conjunction with threaded outlets, the screw thread connector should be assembled with PTFE tape to ensure a watertight seal.

Where applicable, raising rings for the Mk 3 range of rainwater outlets are simply assembled to the clamp ring by the same twist action that fixes the dome grate to the clamp. No fixings or loose components are required. For increased height requirements, Mk 3 raising rings can be cascaded together. The dome grating attaches to the raising ring by the same action.

Raising rings for balcony outlets and gully outlets are available and perform a similar function as the HP Circular raising rings as previously described. Separate stainless steel fixings are supplied with each unit.

Deck Supports ACO deck supports are recommended for metal decked roof construction and are suitable for installation on all types of metal decked roofs. Deck supports have pre-drilled holes for ease of fixing.

Mk 3 raising rings cannot be cut to suit a specific height requirement. Raising rings from the Mk3 and HP range of products are not interchangeable.

HP Circular Raising Rings HP raising rings can be used for domed grating outlets and terrace gratings only. HP raising rings cannot be used with flat gratings. HP raising rings are secured with stainless steel fixings that are supplied with each raising ring product. Where required, the HP raising rings may be easily cut on site to a specific height using a hacksaw (for example, when using a terrace grate in conjunction with paving slabs).

Refurbishment Outlet

Step 1

Step 5

Refurbishment outlets are designed to conveniently fit within the existing rainwater outlet of the roof that is being refurbished, which means there is no need to remove the existing rainwater outlet.

Strip back all roof coverings to the deck level. Clean out old outlet with wire brush and flush with clean water.

Flush with clean water to lubricate and insert tail pipe into existing pipework. Seat flange on timber frame.

Refurbishment outlets incorporate a high performance domed grating and optimised tail pipe to maximise flow through the unit. The labyrinth finned seal ensures a watertight connection to the existing pipework. Two sealable access points within the body enable PU foam to be injected to fill the void between the old and new outlet.

Step 2 Form timber frame around old outlet and lay insulation board/vapour barrier (35 mm minimum).

Step 6 Screw flange to timber frame.

Step 3

Step 7

Check clearance and trim tail pipe to length with hacksaw if necessary.

Inject PU foam through one port for 5 seconds. Remove any surplus.
