Firestone RubberCover EPDM is a high-performance roofing system for residential flat roofing applications limited to 150 m².
Based on an EPDM synthetic rubber membrane with a life expectancy of over 50 years, it is one of the most durable and sustainable roofing systems on the market. It is compatible with a wide range of substrates, making it perfect for renovations as well as new build projects.
In short, RubberCover EPDM is designed to stand the test of time and bring peace of mind to homeowners.
The RubberCover EPDM membrane has excellent resistance to UV, ozone, microorganisms and severe weather conditions. It can elongate over 300% to accommodate building movements and temperature fluctuations, retaining its physical properties over several decades. Additions like skylights or extensions can be integrated easily without affecting the system’s performance.
RubberCover EPDM is lightweight, flexible, easy to work with and allows a short installation time. It comes in large sheets which can cover most residential roofs in one piece without any field seaming. The rolls are easy to handle and store and there’s no need for special tools. Provided the structure is sound, RubberCover EPDM can be used on virtually any new or existing flat roof.
No flame is needed to install the RubberCover EPDM system. The membrane is simply adhered to the substrate using a contact adhesive. This cold application process thoroughly minimizes the risk of fire accidents.
Very low life-cycle cost
Once installed, 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 life-cycle cost.
Due to its exceptional durability, easy maintenance and suitability for recycling, RubberCover EPDM is one of the most eco-friendly roofing products on the market. Several third-party studies have proven that EPDM membranes have a lower environmental impact compared to other roofing membranes. RubberCover EPDM membrane is chemically inert and releases no toxic ingredients, making it suitable for the recuperation of rainwater for sanitary use. In addition, the system is compatible with extensive green roofs and photovoltaic systems, further contributing towards a sustainable environment.
