After the success of DATAQUAD 2000, the expert system for designing continuous roofing waterproofing systems with bitumen-polymer membranes, IMPER ITALIA has developed DATAQUAD SINTOFOIL version 2.0 for continuous roofing waterproofing systems employing thermoplastic olefin and elastomerized FPA Flexible Polypropylene Alloy membranes.

SINTOFOIL DATAQUAD builds on the Imper Italia RUBBERFUSE Divisionís decade of experience in producing, designing and installing FPA membranes for continuous roofing, and covers the whole range of application types (fully independent loose-laid ballasted, mechanically fastened and fully bonded waterproofing systems), with all grades of thermal insulation (non-insulated, warm deck roof insulated systems, inverted warm roof systems and sandwich panel insulated roofing) and final protection (no protection, moveable heavy-duty protection and fixed heavy-duty protection).

The program is compatible with Windows 95, 98, XP, 2000, and the new Vista operating system (in the latter case, the program must be installed and opened by a user with system administrator privileges as described below).

The program is a practical and easy to use tool that uses a series of simple prompts to guide the designer or installer through the whole process of selecting the correct waterproofing system and all component parts, starting from the structural deck right through to the final protection, indicating the appropriate type of thermal insulation, sealing element and all roofing layers or accessories.

After these choices have been made and the design program has identified the exact type of roofing system that the user wants, it will display digitized graphic images showing a series of solutions with recommended roofing systems and a concise description of each.
The user can click on any of these images to view an enlargement showing the waterproofing system and all of the elements and layers that make it up, identified by numbers matching the accompanying specification clauses.
Using a program key, the user can then save the image in DWG format of the selected waterproofing system in a specified folder so that it can be used on its own or incorporated in an engineering drawing produced using a CAD program.

A House icon on the SINTOFOIL DATAQUAD program toolbar provides access to a subprogram for detail drawings most frequently used in FPA membrane roofing systems (turnups, skylights, vents, etc.).
With the choices offered by the menu-based system, the user can identify the desired type of construction detail: as with the design program, a series of digitized graphic images will appear, accompanied by a concise description.
The user can click on any of these images to view an enlargement showing the construction detail and all of the elements and layers that make it up, identified by numbers matching the accompanying specification clauses.
Here again, a program key can then be used to save the image in DWG format of the selected waterproofing system in a specified folder so that it can be used on its own or incorporated in an engineering drawing produced using a CAD program.

Both the specification clauses and the graphic images for the roofing system and/or construction details loaded by the design program or subprogram can be printed by clicking on the printer icon, or exported to another word processing or CAD program by using two icon buttons (one for specification clauses and one for images) on the toolbar for copying and pasting.
The toolbar also provides the user with buttons for accessing the following:

  • “Help with each design program screen form, which provides information and explanations about the currently displayed screen form and the choices it offers.
  • “Glossary of the technical terms used in the program and specification clauses, which provides definitions of the main terms that are easier to understand than those in the applicable UNI standards.
  • “On-line help providing a step-by-step explanation of how to use the main functions of the SINTOFOIL DATAQUAD program (the design program and the construction details program), together with the use of all program icon buttons.
