Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 13 May 2008
Status: inactive
Page Count: 5
ICS Code (Roofs): 91.060.20
significance And Use:

The method of attachment of roof tiles to the roof deck, or support structure, is one factor in the resistance of concrete and clay roof tiles to the action of wind. Several systems of attachment,... View More

scope:

1.1 This test method covers a procedure to determine the mechanical uplift resistance of concrete and clay roof tiles, which relates to the wind resistance of an air-permeable roof tile system as applied to a roof.

1.2 The procedure covers mechanically-fastened attachment systems, adhesive-set attachment systems, and mortar-set attachment systems, or combinations of attachment systems, that are used to apply tile to a roof.

1.3 The values stated in inch pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are given for reference only.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
