Firestone RubberGardTM EPDM is a tried and proven vulcanised synthetic rubber membrane, currently providing waterproofing on tens of thousands of buildings worldwide. From the iconic seven star Burj al Arab Hotel in Dubai to the massive Coca-Cola plant in Sevilla, Spain, RubberGard is proving its worth the world over, on roof structures needing exceptional durability with low depreciation costs.
Available in two thicknesses, 1.1mm and 1.5mm, this 100% cured, single-ply roofing membrane has a highly cross-linked polymer structure which is very chemically stable over time with exceptional mechanical properties.
Firestone has developed a range of installation systems, ensuring that RubberGardTM EPDM Roofing System offers the flexibility to provide solutions for the most challenging rooftops, both for renovation and new build projects. It is designed to be installed on commercial, industrial and residential flat or low slope roofs. It can also be combined with extensive green roof or solar Photovoltaic installations.
One of the keys to RubberGardTM EPDM’s flexibility is Firestone’s proven seaming technology, which allows the panels to be assembled on-site using Firestone QuickSeam Splice Tape, a self-adhesive EPDM/butyl tape designed for field-splicing of Firestone EPDM membranes. Since its introduction in 1987, millions of metres of this tape have been installed on roofs worldwide, generating twice the seam strength of conventional adhesives while reducing the labour time for creating seams. The seams add to the watertight quality of the roofs as they have a low sensitivity to humidity.
