Now includes built in place vegetated roof assembly (BVRA)
The previous edition was limited to modular vegetated roof assembly (MVRA). This edition introduces the specimen requirements, test methodology, and failure criteria for the built in place vegetated roof assembly (BVRA). This edition is also updated to align with the NBCC 2015’s load resistance factor design procedure.
This Standard is based on the ongoing research and testing that is being carried out at the National Research Council Canada (NRCC). This document provides requirements for wind resistance testing of vegetated roof assemblies.
This Standard has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada.
