What is a Coping, Eps Styrofoam Coping Models and Jamb Materials
In the dictionary, the word meaning of the exterior cladding materials in the capstone is "capstone materials", which is preferred on the upper parts of the wall or roof parapet, inclined to one side or from the middle to both sides, and which is made to prevent accumulation of water and snow. As in every façade application in construction site environments, "cork models" can also be called a jamb. Fast and practical assembly of eps styrofoam jamb materials parapet cladding profiles. Today's construction technologies allow "manufacturing of the coping" from materials such as plastic, concrete, precast, tile and styrofoam foam.
capstone profiles can be designed with eps styrofoam and then cut from eps styrofoam blocks and prepared in desired sizes and forms. Styrofoam coping materials, which can be produced according to special sizes, are a much more advantageous solution compared to other material options. The fact that the dimensions on the roof parapet are fractional can cause problems in the application of other ready-made coping profiles.
The coping profiles we produce from Eps styrofoam, on the other hand, offer the advantage of being produced specifically for the size of the roof parapet of the building, just like a tailor takes special measurements. The materials of the 2 m long dowels are covered with jamb mortar and have the ability to withstand the harsh conditions of the exterior for many years. Ready-made warp profiles produced in 2m lengths are very practical in terms of application and are materials that can offer a perfect solution after the joints are filled with the necessary repair mortar.
Roof parapets of buildings are the places where "capstone" profiles are used most.With the awareness of sheathing in buildings gaining a place in our society , many " capstone " models have been manufactured . In today's architecture, "capstone " is used as both insulation and decorative facade cladding . "Coating jambs" can be produced with many different materials such as concrete, precast, XPS foam, EPS styrofoam foamDue to the fact that it is cheap, economical and light in buildings, the materials of the coping are mostly produced as EPS Styrofoam.
"capstone" are produced to cover the roof parapet in U and L shapes. As an alternative to marble parapet in Metpor Jamb and Sheathing applications, different types of copings are used in our projects. capstone are sometimes mixed with floor cleaning materials. capstone, which can be produced in the same form as a set with floor wiping materials, serve different purposes not only visually, but also as a function.
How to Apply Coping Materials?
While applying the coping , measure the various dimensions and protrusions of the roof parapet andthe need for the eaves parapet in a reasonable and desired model should be determined.
The trick of the application of coping on parapets and roofs is to take a reference measurement from different points of the measured parapet. This element is very important before placing an order for the manufacture of the harrow profile. Eps Styrofoam jamb materials are the most practical and fast produced roof parapet materials.
It is glued in place after the application of "heat insulation " on the façade It is glued in place with cement-based bonding materials such as heat insulation adhesive mortar. It is very important that they are on the scales and at the same level. The top of the coping material should be inclined towards the roof stream so that rain, snow, etc. It should be able to do its duty against water accumulation and flow to the front.
One of the important details is that the junction points of the copings, if the material is foam (EPS - XPS) , are filled with their own material on the jamb and the coping, which we define as the jamb repair mortar. If materials such as silicone, adhesive mortar, powder group adhesive are used in the assembly, cracks may begin to be seen at the junction points in a very short time, this will cause us to face water intake problems in the long term, which is aesthetically unsightly. It is necessary to make more accurate applications for the joints.
After the coping material is adhered and repairs are made in the junction areas, only the roof parapet coping materials, which are made of eps styrofoam, are painted in the desired color. Since Eps styrofoam coping materials are cut in cnc machinesit can be produced in the formof other exterior accessories such as jambs, floor wipers, buttresses applied in the building.
As an additional information, crows and seagulls can eat or peck and pierce the harp hares, which are usually foam (EPS - XPS foam). In order to prevent this problem, a waterproofing material that is resistant to UV rays is applied on the cover after the application. When this material is applied, crows and seagulls cannot damage the materials in the coping, and this waterproofing material (liquid membrane) is lowered from the roof parapet to the roof stream with a thin net, and a very comprehensive "water insulation" measure is taken on the roof parapet.
Door Jamb Prices
The eps styrofoam battens we use in building roof parapets are priced according to their dimensions and dimensions. Prices of jambs and capstone start from 27.00TL+VAT . According to their size and smallness, that is, according to the dimensions of the roof parapet profile to be prepared, " jam prices " vary. One of the most important factors affecting the prices of the coping is the dimensions of the profile. As the dimensions of the capstone profile increase, the prices of the meter also increase.
