Single-ply synthetic membrane rubber roofing is ideal for use over low-sloping or flat roofs because it is durable, pliable, and waterproof. Whether they are made from synthetic rubber polymers or are made from plastic polymers, rubber roofs are perfect in situations where the installation of traditional felt roofs or GRP roofs may be problematic.

A good example of this is the installation of a roof with complex penetrations such as: Skylights, Soil pipes, flues and vents. Orangery roofs are notoriously difficult to install correctly as a one piece membrane system.

It is very important that the installation of an EPDM roof is not attempted in the rain or in damp, cold or extreme weather conditions. However, the EPDM system is extremely flexible and quite impervious to temperature and structural movement problems, unlike felt and GRP roofing systems.

It is critical that all the materials used on an EPDM roof are of the best quality and fit for purpose.

Seamless sheets in 1 piece

Firestone RubberCover EPDM membranes are available in large seamless sheets up to 15 M in width. [MS-c1] Most small residential roofs can therefore be covered with one single sheet without any field seaming.

Flame-free and easy installation

Talking about trouble free installation… Firestone RubberCover EPDM membranes require no flame as the membrane is always fully adhered to the substrate using a cold applied solvent free adhesive. It makes the EPDM roofing installation process quick and environmentally friendly.

Very low life-cycle cost

What’s more: once installed, Firestone RubberCover EPDM membranes requires little or no maintenance! Combined with the membrane’s inherent durability and competitive installation 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 movement.

Environmentally friendly

Working in an environmentally-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!
