Seamless sheets in 1 piece
Firestone RubberCover EPDM membranes are available in large, seamless sheets up to 6.10 m in width. [MS-c1] Most small residential roofs can therefore be covered with one single sheet without any field seaming. Easy? Yes, it is!
Flame-free and easy installation
Talking about easy installation… Firestone RubberCover EPDM membranes require no flame as the membrane is always fully adhered to the substrate using a cold applied adhesive. It makes the EPDM roofing installation process easy and… safe.
Very low life-cycle cost
What’s more: once installed, Firestone RubberCover EPDM membranes require no or only little maintenance! Combined with the membrane's inherent durability and competitive installed cost this results in a very low lifecycle cost.
High flexibility and elongation
Firestone RubberCover EPDM membranes remain highly flexible even at low temperatures, enabling year round installation. The membrane can also elongate over 300% to accommodate building movements.
Working in an environmental-friendly way? We support you! Firestone RubberCover EPDM membrane is an inert material with limited environmental impact both during manufacture and installation and high durability compared to other roofing membranes. In addition, our EPDM manufacturing facilities have received ISO 14001 certification for their environmental management system. Good news for you and, above all, for nature.
Recuperation of rainwater
Physical tests carried out at Eurofins, an accredited laboratory recognized for environmental analyses, have shown that Firestone RubberCover EPDM membrane and its assembly system allow the recovery of rainwater. It is therefore possible to recycle the collected water for use as domestic water. Good news for nature!
The composition of Firestone RubberCover EPDM membrane is such that no fire retardant product has to be added for different roofing assemblies to obtain a BROOF (t1), BROOF (t3) or BROOF (t4) classification.
