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, 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?

Low Life Cycle Costs

Firestone RubberGard makes it even more easy on you. Our EPDM roofing requires little or no maintenance. If needed, you can repair the rubber membranes simply by using the Firestone QuickSeam Tape products, even after decades of service. This feature, combined with the inherent durability and competitive installed cost of RubberGard EPDM roofing systems, result in very low life-cycle costs.

A Range of Applications

Tailored, custom-cut Firestone RubberGard roofing systems for all types of commercial, industrial and domestic roofing.

Sustainable Commercial Roofing Solution

Firestone RubberGard EPDM supports your sustainability efforts. It is an inert material with low environmental impact. No toxic substances are released during and after installation of the membrane, allowing collection and use of run-off rainwater for domestic use. It can also be recycled and re-used. In addition, Firestone’s EPDM manufacturing facilities have received ISO 14001 certification, a testimony of the company’s commitment to environmental management. Ready to reduce your footprint?

Compatible with Extensive Green Roof & Photovoltaic Installations

Are you looking at commercial green roofs and solar energy? Having successfully passed the EN 1394 test for resistance to root penetration on extensive green roofs, Firestone RubberGard EPDM is an ideal membrane for combination with extensive green roofing systems, using lightweight and low maintenance sedum vegetation. What’s more: you can easily combine the our EPDM membrane with any type of PV (photovoltaic) installation thanks to its high temperature resistance, wear and tear resistance and unmatched life expectancy.
