EverGuard® TPO membranes
A great advantage of GAF EverGuard TPO roof membranes over other membranes types such an EPDM rubber or bitumen torch is the weldability of TPO. Traditionally the weakest part of flat roof membranes systems are the system junctions and these are usually the first parts to break down and leak. GAF EverGuard TPO overcomes this weakness with a welding system that is so strong, that when under test the product itself will tear apart before the weld fails. Not only that, but the membrane sheet is reinforced with a fibre core giving EverGuard structural integrity that resists movement over time, providing a lasting result. It really is no surprise the industry is moving toward this superior flat roofing technology.
Everguard® TPO Features
∎ Energy Saving – Much cooler roof being light gray coloured, making it a cooler option than torch and EPDM Rubber. Solar reflectivity lowers cost of air-conditioning and reduces thermal expansion and contraction.
∎ Stronger Joints – Joins are up to 4x stronger than other membranes as joints and laps are traditionally the weakest part of a membrane roof however, TPO uses welding technology to create a seam stronger then the membrane itself.
∎ Warranties – 20, 25 and 30 year warranties coming 3 different weights 45mil, 60mil and 80mil.
∎ Faster – Much faster to install than EPDM butyl or torch membranes.
∎ Consistent – Robotically wielded seam welded on site for a perfect weld every time greatly reducing the chance or failures from improper application or contractor error.
∎ Safe – Zero fire hazard during construction unlike torch membranes that are a construction insurance issue along with worker safety and project security.
∎ Water collection – Potable drinking water collection for use in pools or consumption.
∎ Wide rolls – 66% less joins achieved by 3m wide rolls compared with 1m rolls of torch.
∎ Easier to install – Full accessories available for every detail and corner including penetrations.
∎ Option – Bonded Fleece back option.
∎ Odorless – No odor during or after installation.
∎ UV Resistance – Excellent industry leading long-term heat and UV resistance.
∎ Reinforced – mesh layer in the core of the membrane making TPO puncher resistant and less likely to travel or move over the life of the roof.
∎ Easy to repair – Can be altered and welded after installation.
∎ Strong wind – uplift rating with a fully adhered installation.
∎ Incredible smooth – clean finish and look consistently pleases customers.
∎ USA manufactured – by North Americas largest roofing manufacture GAF.
∎ NSF/ANSI 347: Providing architects and contractors with a certified sustainable option for single-ply roofing membranes.
∎ EPDs: Publishes Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for Single-Ply Roofing Membranes.
GAF EverGuard TPO roofing is produced by North America’s largest roofing manufacturer and has been independently tested to have better accelerated age testing showing higher performing heat and UV resistance than competing TPO products.
EverGuard® TPO Photos
GAF EverGuard was first installed in New Zealand is 2009 and installed around the Pacific on residential homes and apartment building complexes, large commercial buildings including multi-level offices and factories, also hangars and international airport control towers and many more.
GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, is pleased to announce the production of its one billionth square foot of EverGuard® Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) single ply roofing membrane. TPO roofing, which offers a combination of durability, performance, and reflectivity, is known for its energy saving properties.
BRANZ Appraised for New Zealand’s harshest environments.
While GAF EverGuard® TPO have UL and ASTM international certification, they have also been BRANZ Appraised for New Zealand specifically. BRANZ are the leading major Appraisal company in New Zealand and are highly respected by industry Professionals and Territorial Authorities alike.
