Anchoring of the layers of flat warm roofs using anchoring elements is nowadays one of the most used technology. This is a frequent technology to repair damaged roofs (total reconstruction, increasing the load on the wind loads, partial repairs etc.). In the European building market there are several suppliers of the enchoring equipment who declare their product’s properties in the european technical approvements (ETA). The goal of the article is to demonstrate results of the carried out measurements and their possible impact into practical application of the mechanically anchored systems. This allows reduce the amount of defects to improving flexible watertight membranes. The topic can be considered actual and due to the large number of defects precisely for these types of roofs.
