Creating slopes with polystyrene: using polystyrene for terrace and balcony roofs is also useful for creating slopes and determining the direction of water drainage. Doing so, however, is not easy and requires meticulous and careful planning. To create our slopes, we always consider the position of the drainage outlets and, based on this, decide the direction of water runoff. Once these parameters have been established, we divide the area to be covered into a grid.
Based on this, we can define slopes, ranging from a minimum of 0.5 per cent to a maximum of 2 per cent. We then go on to determine the dimensions of each polystyrene tile with which we are going to create the cover.

Obviously, these dimensions must take into account every logistical eventuality. This is why the maximum size of these tiles does not exceed 1 metre by 1 metre. Each tile is numbered according to its position in the design grid. Numbering facilitates installation and avoids placement errors. In addition to being versatile, polystyrene is easier to handle than mortar for creating slopes and also allows for the creation of double slopes. The material also functions as an insulator, improving the energy performance of the buildings in which it is used.
Finally, all the materials we use for the pendants and covers are certified materials.
