The Bridgestone Corporation is the world’s biggest tyre and rubber company, a multi-billion dollar corporation with a wealth of expertise in innovating and manufacturing tough, durable and economical rubber polymer products. This expertise formed a powerful base for Firestone Building Products to launch into the waterproofing industry in 1980.
Since then Firestone Building Products has established itself as a global leader in manufacturing rubber-based roofing and lining systems for industrial, commercial and residential buildings, producing and installing more than 1,500,000,000 square metres of single-ply membranes worldwide.
Firestone’s single-ply membranes can be found from the bitter cold of Siberia to the intense sun of the Middle East. Here in the UK they were used in the construction of Wembley Arena. When Air France needed to renovate the 23,000 square metre roof of its maintenance hall at Roissy Charles de Gaulle Airport near Paris in 2014, it chose Firestone’s RubberGardTM EPDM. Thousands of buildings, of all shapes and sizes, in the UK and around the world, have benefitted from these cheap and highly durable flat roof coverings.
And in an age when environmental concerns are more important to us than ever, Firestone Building Products has a strong commitment to providing long-term solutions that save money by extending the life of the installed roof system but also aim to reduce the demand for energy and other natural resources and minimise the environmental impact. An environmental management system complying with the ISO 14001 requirements has been implemented throughout Firestone’s manufacturing facilities.
As befits such a prestigious international brand, Firestone Roofing Systems chooses its partners with great care, and that is why BBRS is proud to be chosen as an official UK supplier. We can offer you these three great Firestone Roofing Systems solutions for your flat roofing needs:
