Roofing for temporary buildings: Four roof types – which one is best?

Herchenbach offers four roof types for temporary buildings. Insulation or fire protection? Both or neither? The choice is yours. But no matter what you choose, they can all be quickly inserted into the building’s profiles.

What the Herchenbach roofs provide

Temporary buildings from Herchenbach are quick to build. Their walls and roof are inserted into aluminium profiles. In addition to the simple assembly (1000 m² temporary building takes about one week to erect), the roofing scores points in several other ways.

  • All roofing types come with a layer of PVC tarpaulin. This industrial roof textile is highly tear-resistant and can withstand 250 kg/m².
  • Temporary buildings from Herchenbach are certified for a service life of up to 50 years. The roof tarpaulin will be resistant to rain, frost and hail for decades.
  • The industrial tarpaulin stands out not only for its load-bearing capacity, but for its affordable price as well.
  • The roofing is supplied in the colour white as standard.

The following options can be added to it:

  • An insulating fleece for improved insulation.
  • A glass fleece increases protection from heat and flying sparks. The tarpaulin is thus approved as ‘hard roofing’ for construction on an existing building.



Areas of application for roofing

Heba roof as affordable weather protection

The Heba roof tarpaulin provides cost-effective weather protection. It is particularly suitable for the Cover+ canopy or the Safe+ non-insulated building. It can be used for canopies or tunnels as well as warehouses for temperature-insensitive goods, vehicle depots or hangars.

Insulation with Hebatherm

If the building is to be used as a storage space for temperature-sensitive goods or if it will be heated because work is carried out there for a longer period of time – for example in a workshop or exhibition space – the insulated roof tarpaulin is recommended. It is somewhat more expensive due to the additional insulating fleece, but saves costs in heating compared to a non-insulated roof tarpaulin.

Double the fire protection

Both the insulated and non-insulated roofing can also come with an additional glass fibre fleece. This is useful if special fire protection requirements have been imposed, for example because construction is taking place on existing buildings.
