Nophadrain Parking Deck Systems

This system's high compressive strength means that the pavement on the roofs of both aboveground and underground structures can withstand not only cars but even emergency vehicles and heavy goods vehicles.

Features and advantages of parking decks

What is a parking deck?
A parking deck system enables the installation of vehicular pavements on roofs. Parking decks are often combined with intensive vegetation. This means that the existing environment around a building can be extended onto the roof of the construction. 

Advantages of a parking deck system:

  • More space is reclaimed for the surrounding area, creating new options for using the space on a roof.

  • The roof seamlessly transitions into the surrounding area.

  • Protection of the waterproofing membrane: the vegetation helps to counteract the harmful effect of sunlight and rain on the waterproofing membrane. This protects the waterproofing membrane and it increases its lifespan.
  • Makes a positive contribution to the living environment: this system is generally combined with vegetation. It therefore makes a positive contribution in other regards as well, such as increasing biodiversity, combatting the heat island effect and reducing sewer system loads during heavy precipitation.

The heart of the Nophadrain Parking Deck Systems
The core of the Nophadrain Parking Deck System is the ND 620 Drainage System (for cars) or the ND 620hd Drainage System (for emergency services and heavy goods vehicles), both with high compressive strength. These drainage systems prevent the build-up of hydrostatic pressure on the waterproofing membrane. The drainage systems, in combination with the ND TSF-100 Slip and Protection Sheet, protect the waterproofing membrane against static and dynamic traffic loads.

The ND 620 / ND 620hd Drainage Systems ensure excellent water drainage from the sub-base layer and prevent freezing and scaling in the flexible paving. This means they offer a stable and durable under layer for the flexible paving. Nophadrain Parking Deck Systems have been subjected to long-term dynamic load tests at the Technical University of Munich in Germany.

We would be glad to advise you about the options. We can help you maximize the advantages of a parking deck while limiting the risks to a minimum.
