Pneumatic Ballasting Service

Pneumatic Ballasting

Ballast ranging in size from ordinary pea gravel up to 2.5″ river rock required on many roofing systems can be pneumatically placed from the ground to the roof and broadcast evenly in a controlled manner per the roofing contractor’s specifications across the roof surface.

RK’s Pneumatic Ballasting System eliminates roof membrane and crushed insulation damage caused by carting heavy gravel buggies across new roof systems.

Pneumatic ballasting also eliminates problems such as reaching hard-to-get areas, electrical lines, double handling on multi-level roofs, etc.

Your crews are free to move on to the more productive work they are trained to do, and the ballasting is done in a safe, efficient, and workmanlike manner.
