Helitack shines bright with roofing upgrade

PABCO Helitack shines bright with roofing upgrade

A detailed look inside the Cal Fire Helitack Facility in Vina, California, and its impact on air traffic control. 

Having served the area for over four decades, the Vina Helitack underwent a significant modernization process initiated by Cal Fire in 2018. ARK Design Construction and Roofing, a leading Northern California contractor and roofing expert with 30 years of experience, handled the project. The facility, designed by Nichols, Melburg and Rosetto from Redding, California, features an office with a 180º helipad view, a hangar, an apparatus bay, a training tower and dorms with common areas. 

For this important project, ARK installed PABCO® Premier Radiance® shingles, which are infused with solar-reflective granules. These granules reflect heat-producing ultraviolet rays from the sun back into the atmosphere, which may reduce heat transfer into the structure. Premier Radiance is available in several vibrant colors, including cool oakwood used on the Cal Fire Helitack Facility. Premier Radiance shingles also meet the UL790 Class A Fire Resistance Standard. 

“Cal Fire needed a roof with excellent durability to handle the extreme weather and sunshine of Northern California, and it was obvious the Premier Radiance shingle from PABCO Roofing Products was the right product for the job,” said Jeff Sharp, estimator, Ark Design. “Premier Radiance is the heaviest shingle in its class, so it can handle the wind and its superior reflective properties help the facility stay cooler in the summer heat.”

ARK also used Carlisle® WIP 100, CertainTeed® Mountain Ridge® hip and ridge accessory, GMC 30-pound felt, and AEP Span Design Span® metal roofing. The roof incorporates an integrated, custom metal ridge vent system to ensure proper ventilation. 

PABCO’s Premier Radiance shingles not only protect the Cal Fire Helitack Facility, but they also meet California’s Title 24 building energy-efficiency standards. With the recent wildfires that have surged across the area, the remodeled helitack base, along with its aircraft, have made significant advances in fighting wildfires and keeping Northern California safe.
