Protecting RUBBERALL® Membrane In High Foot Traffic Areas (Decks)

IMPORTANT -- THE EPDM MEMBRANE IS NOT DESIGNED AS A FINAL WALKING SURFACE AND SHOULD BE PROTECTED FROM EXCESSIVE FOOT TRAFFIC. THE FOLLOWING ARE OPTIONS TO BE CONSIDERED:

Covering With RUBBERALL® Walkway Pads

RUBBERALL® Walkway Pads (Peel & Stick) are 30" x 30" skid resistant, molded EPDM pads that can be adhered to the membrane in much the same manner as laying tile:

You may also use rubber to rubber adhesive over the entire

RUBBERALL® Walkway Pad and membrane to fully adhere. Refer back to section on rubber to rubber adhesion for more information.

Covering With Wood Deck

When installing a wood deck over an EPDM membrane, the deck sleepers should be laid over an extra piece of membrane called a separator sheet. The separator sheet should extend a minimum of two inches (2") past the sleeper on all sides and should be adhered with Seam Tape.

Figure 33

DO NOT attach the sleepers through the membrane. The deck should be secured at a sidewall, post, or perimeter area.

Covering With Exterior Grade Carpet

When attaching and outdoor carpet, use any exterior grade adhesive and install according to carpet manufacturer's instructions.
