    Removing Ice and Snow from AdvanTech®

    During winter months, snow and ice may accumulate on AdvanTech panels. Although this may present a safety hazard, snow and ice will not normally affect the structural integrity of the panels. Once the ice and snow have melted and the building closed in, it is important to ensure the panels have completely dried prior to finish floor installation. Ice and snow can safely be removed from AdvanTech flooring with 3 different products.

    AdvanTech® Subflooring in a Roof Application

    AdvanTech® flooring can be used as roof sheathing. Roof applications are generally designed using more liberal deflection criteria than floors (i.e., L/240 deflection criteria for roof live loads vs. L/360 or tighter deflection criteria for residential floor live loads). If AdvanTech flooring is used in a roof application the L/240 deflection criteria is generally acceptable.
