USES:

Ram RootProtect is specifically designed to be embedded into Barrett’s RamTough 250 roofing membrane when installed in a Greenroof-Roofscapes® Assembly. Ram RootProtect provides protection to the membrane from mechanical damage as well as damage due to penetration by roots. 

 

INSTALLATION:

HORIZONTAL APPLICATIONS

Ram RootProtect is to be rolled out and embedded into the RamTough 250 membrane while the membrane is still warm and aggressively tacky to ensure proper adhesion.

 

Adjacent sheets must be lapped a minimum of 2 inches. All laps should be “wet lapped” with RamTough 250 or may be torch welded per standard APP modified bitumen torching techniques.

 

Ram RootProtect should be dressed up all roofing termination points and flashings to provide total root barrier protection to all roofed/flashed surfaces that will be subsequently covered with growing media. Flashing heights > 12 inches may require alternate securement.

 

VERTICAL APPLICATIONS

Ram RootProtect is to be rolled out and embedded into the RamTough 250 membrane while the membrane is still warm and aggressively tacky to ensure proper adhesion. If the RamTough 250 membrane cools to ambient temperature and loses its tack, install a thin layer of RamTough 250 to create additional tack. Alternatively, the root block can also be lightly torched to create additional adhesion on the backside of the granulated cap sheet. Ram RootProtect is then rolled into the newly created tacky surface for a uniform root protect barrier. 

 

Adjacent sheets must be lapped a minimum of 1.5 inches to 3 inches and all laps can be wet lapped with RamTough 250 or torch welded. This process pertains to all vertical wall and footer applications.
