Key features & benefits

Why can you rely on our RubberGard EPDM roofing?

Superior durability and longevity

Total peace of mind for a very long time. That’s what Firestone RubberGard EPDM has to offer. Thanks to their composition, properly formulated EPDM membranes show an unmatched resistance to ozone, UV radiation and extreme temperatures. As the membrane does not contain any plasticizers or flame retardants, its characteristics remain stable and unchanged over time. Studies show a life expectancy of more than 50 years.

Quick and easy installation

In our range you find just the right EPDM roofing solution for your project. What’s more, Firestone RubberGard EPDM is easy to install. It is available in large seamless sheets up to 15.25 m wide and 61 m long (930 m²), resulting in fewer field seams for large surfaces and short installation times. Additionally, Firestone's QuickSeam Tape technology provides a proven field seaming solution without requiring special tools.

High flexibility and elongation

Firestone RubberGard EPDM remains highly flexible even at temperatures down to -45°C, enabling year round installation. The membrane can also elongate over 300% to accommodate building movements and temperature fluctuations. Did we already mention that we offer you total peace of mind?
