EPDM roofing solution for a superior result
Single-ply waterproofing systems have been steadily gaining market share. Outstanding durability, ease of installation, and ability to optimize the energy efficiency of buildings while minimizing their environmental impact are key factors behind this trend. Firestone Building Products’ RubberGard EPDM roofing membrane ticks all these boxes.
RubberGard EPDM is a single-ply waterproofing membrane for flat and low slope roofs of commercial, industrial and residential buildings. It offers outstanding durability, resilience and adaptability to current and future building needs.
The installation of RubberGard EPDM is flame-free, making onsite working conditions safer. Being a single-ply membrane, it offers a lightweight roofing solution that is quick and easy to install on both renovations and new build projects.
What makes our EPDM roofing stand out?
Superior durability and longevity:
Properly formulated EPDM membranes show an unmatched resistance to ozone, UV radiation and extreme temperatures, with a life expectancy of over 50 years. As they do not contain any plasticizers or flame retardants, their characteristics remain stable and unchanged over time.
Quick and easy installation:
RubberGard EPDM is easy to install. It is available in large seamless sheets, resulting in fewer field seams needed for large surfaces and a shorter installation time.
High flexibility and elongation:
RubberGard EPDM remains highly flexible, even at temperatures as low as -45°C, enabling year-round installation. The membrane can also elongate over 300% to accommodate building movements and temperature fluctuations.
Low-life cycle cost:
RubberGard EPDM requires little or no maintenance. This feature, combined with its inherent durability and competitive installation costs, result in a very low life-cycle cost.
RubberGard EPDM supports your sustainable efforts. It is an inert material with a low environmental impact. No toxic substances are released during or after its installation, allowing the collection of run-off rainwater for domestic use. The membrane can also be recycled and re-used. Firestone Building Products’ EPDM manufacturing facilities have received the ISO 14001 certification.
Compatible with green roofs and photovoltaic installations:
Having successfully passed the EN 1394 test for resistance to root penetration on extensive green roofs, RubberGard EPDM is ideal for green roofs. You can also easily combine RuberGard EDPM with any type of photovoltaic installation thanks to its high-temperature resistance, wear and tear resistance, and outstanding life expectancy.
