High quality EPDM membrane
Firestone RubberCover EPDM membrane is a 100% cured single-ply roofing membrane made of a Ethylene-Propylene-Diene Terpolymer offering unique features and benefits.
For decades, Firestone EPDM rubber roofing membranes have been successfully installed on hundreds of thousands of commercial and industrial roofs worldwide. Today, the high-performing Firestone EPDM membranes are also available to cover small residential flat roofs.
Key features & benefits
- Superior durability
Firestone RubberCover EPDM membranes offer unmatched resistance to ozone, UV radiation and high or low temperatures. They have a life expectancy of up to 50 years. Over a billion of square meters of roof installations worldwide are a testimony of Firestone EPDM membrane's proven performance.
- Seamless sheets in 1 piece
Firestone RubberCover EPDM membranes are available in large, seamless sheets up to 6.10 m in width. Most small residential roofs can therefore be covered with one single sheet without any field seaming.
- Very low life-cycle cost
Firestone RubberCover EPDM membranes require no or only little maintenance once installed. This feature, combined with the membrane's inherent durability and competitive installed cost, result in a very low lifecycle cost.
- Flame-free and easy installation
Installation of Firestone RubberCover EPDM membranes is easy. It requires no flame as the membrane is always fully adhered to the substrate using a cold applied adhesive.
- 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.
- Environmentally friendly
Firestone RubberCover EPDM is an inert material with limited environmental impact both during manufacture and installation and high durability compared to other roofing membranes. In addition, Firestone's EPDM manufacturing facilities have received ISO 14001 certification for their environmental management system.
- Recuperation of rainwater
Physical tests carried out at Eurofins, an accredited Belgian laboratory recognised for environmental analyses, have shown that the 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.
- Fire resistance
The composition of the 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.
