Rubber Skylight Coating Project

Rubber Skylight Coating Project

Skylight Restoration at Salt Lake City Airport

Salt Lake City has two airports, Salt Lake City International and a general aviation and training center designated as Airport II.

The City of Salt Lake had allocated funds for a rather extensive maintenance and roof repair program, including two pre-engineered buildings of approximately 14,000 and 20,000 square feet. These two buildings house a variety of operations including flight schools, maintenance facilities and airport administration offices.

The smaller of the two is a through panel screw fastener, painted “R” panel roof. The larger is a through panel pop rivet fastener, galvanized “R” panel. Although both of these two story, 2/12 pitch gable roofs have a number of skylights, the roof penetrations for HVAC and plumbing vents were minimal.

The project scope included a 2500# power wash, mechanical scraping and wire brushing as needed. All fiberglass skylight perimeters, penetrations, vertical and horizontal seams were addressed with Inland’s RC-2250 and RPM mesh. Both roofs received two field coats of Inland’s RC-2000 Rubber Roof Coating.
