Our society is dependent on data, from processing and storage to networking. Data centers and mission-critical locations are the hub for technology needs supporting businesses and end users. The roofing system plays a part in protecting the interior of the building, along with assisting in maintaining the ambient temperature. Exterior elements such as wind, rain and UV rays are just a few of the considerations for the roofing system design.

Tier I to tier IV data centers are expected to provide uptime ranging from 99.67% to 99.995%, 24 hours a day. Disruption is not an option. JM has covered data centers and mission-critical locations across the country with various membrane and systems configurations.

Depending on the location, environment, use and budget, JM has a solution, including single ply or bituminous membranes, insulation and cover board options and applications methods.

Roof Components to Consider: 

The membrane is the outer most protective layer of your commercial roof system to protect your investment from the elements, but it’s not the only thing to consider when installing a roof system. Additional roof components can help make a roofing system more resilient against things like hail, foot traffic, seismic activity, and standing water. Here are a few components to consider for a data center/mission control building.
