Car Park Roofing

REIDsteel recommends that all car parks are covered. This avoids the need to waterproof the parking decks.

The simplest form of car park roofing is the Single Sheet Steel Roof, where a single skin of sheeted canopy is erected over the top of the car park. Propped at 15.6m by 7.2m centres or to suit the selected bay sizes, the sheeting is carried on galvanised zed purlins on galvanised steel rafters, with regular external gutters and downpipes.

Adding steel roofing to a car park effectively eliminates the need for waterproofing of the decking and prevents rainwater accumulation, which might otherwise lead to flooding of the parking spaces and pedestrian walkway areas.
