Suitable for a variety of low-slope commercial roofing applications, Firestone UltraPly™ TPO roofing membrane is a sustainable roofing solution for a wide range of building types.
UltraPly TPO membrane also offers design options with panels available in reflective white, tan or gray, which can help reduce a building’s cooling requirements. White and tan UltraPly TPO membranes meet the new version of the Energy Efficiency Standards for Residential and Nonresidential Buildings (Title 24). These standards define cool roofs in California to have a minimum three-year aged reflectance of 0.55 and a minimum thermal emittance of 0.75 for low-sloped nonresidential buildings.
White and tan UltraPly TPO membranes are listed with the Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC), and meet or exceed the new Title 24 requirements for low-slope roofing membranes.
Firestone UltraPly™ Platinum TPO system is a thermoplastic roofing system backed by a 30-year warranty. Comprised of a durable, 80-mil-thick scrim-reinforced membrane, the UltraPly Platinum TPO system can be fully adhered or mechanically attached to Firestone insulation and fastened to a wide range of deck substrates.
The UltraPly Platinum TPO system features Firestone patented Wide-Weld technology to provide the industry’s widest field seams and highest mechanically attached wind ratings, while its scrim-reinforced membrane offers enhanced puncture, tear and abrasion resistance. The reflective surface of the UltraPly Platinum TPO system meets ENERGY STAR® standards for energy savings in warm climates, making it an exceptional long-term roofing value for building owners.
