Roof formwork made of OSB is suitable for transferring planned vertical loads from the roof covering and from snow loads into the substructure. This is usually the case on flat roofs and on very low-pitched roofs with waterproofing or large format roofing. For these applications, high pull-out strengths of various fasteners (nails, screws) are also crucial, regardless of whether metal roofs or seals are to be fixed into the OSB panels.
In pitched roofs with roof coverings consisting of small pieces, such as tiles or concrete blocks, EGGER DHF Vapour Permeable Sheathing Panels are used as underlay on the rafters. The form-fitting and tightly closing tongue-and-groove profile ensures that secondary condensation water, rain and snow penetrating through joints are safely drained to the eaves.
In general, no further measures are required for roofs with a pitch of at least 14°. In low-pitched roofs, the joints of the panels must be taped with suitable adhesive tape.
In this application, OSB boards can be used as a covering underlay for an additional foil-shaped sub-roof, if necessary, with special consideration of freedom from condensation and moisture protection.
