Single-ply waterproofing membranes are becoming popular for their durability, and ability to optimize the energy efficiency of buildings while minimizing their environmental impact.
Elevate EMEA RubberGard EPDM is a synthetic rubber single-ply waterproofing membrane for flat and low slope roofs of commercial, industrial and residential buildings. It offers outstanding durability, resilience, and adaptability to current and future building needs.
Unlike other traditional roofing membranes on the market, the installation of RubberGard EPDM is flame-free, making onsite working conditions safer. Being a single-ply membrane, it offers a lightweight roofing solution that is quick and easy to install for both renovations and new build projects.
- Durability and Longevity
Properly formulated EPDM membranes show resistance to ozone, UV radiation, and extreme temperatures. As they do not contain any plasticizers or flame retardants, their characteristics remain stable and unchanged over time, with a life expectancy of more than 50 years
- Quick and Easy Installation
Available in large seamless sheets up to 15.25 m wide x 61 m long (930 m²), resulting in fewer field seams needed for large surfaces and a shorter installation time. Elevate's QuickSeam tape technology offers a proven field-seaming solution without requiring sophisticated or costly equipment
- High flexibility and Elongation
RubberGard EPDM remains highly flexible, even at temperatures as low as -45°C, enabling year-round installation. The membrane can also elongate over 300% to accommodate building movements and temperature fluctuations
- Low-life Cycle Cost
RubberGard EPDM requires little or no maintenance. This feature, combined with its durability and competitive installation costs, results in a very low life-cycle cost
RubberGard EPDM is an inert material with a low environmental impact. No toxic substances are released during or after its installation, allowing the collection of run-off rainwater for domestic use. The membrane can also be recycled and reused. Elevate EMEA Products’ EPDM manufacturing facilities have received the ISO 14001 certification
- Compatible with Green Roofs and Photovoltaic Installations
Having successfully passed the EN 1394 test for resistance to root penetration on extensive green roofs, RubberGard EPDM is ideal for green roofs. Combine RuberGard EDPM with any type of photovoltaic installation thanks to its high-temperature resistance, wear and tear resistance, and long life expectancy
|Mechanically Attached System ||Lightweight, non-penetrating mechanically attached system developed around Elevate’s QuickSeam RMA strip. The QuickSeam RMA strips are laid over the substrate and mechanically secured to the roof deck. The membrane then adheres to these self-adhesive strips |
|Fully Adhered System ||The membrane is fully adhered directly to the substrate using Elevate bonding adhesive |
|Ballasted System ||The membrane is loosely laid over the substrate and held in place using approved ballast |
