The RubberBond™ FleeceBack™ EPDM Rubber Roofing System is one of the toughest materials known for resistance to weather wind and sun. It is a rubber roofing system that is designed and proven to outlast conventional flat roofing materials.
Our EPDM rubber roofing system repels all moisture and does not suffer with age from cracking or crazing making it perfect for all roofs – replacing existing roofs or for use with extensions and new builds.
Through patented technology, a non – woven polyester fleece is laminated to the underside of the standard RubberBond™ EPDM making FleeceBack™ a more substantial and stronger EPDM product. This makes it an extremely durable rubber roofing material that is:
- Over twice the thickness of standard EPDM
- 180% plus greater tear resistance*
- 60% plus greater impact resistance*
- There is no shrinkage or stress to cause leaks at flashings, upstands or other penetrations
Over 50 Years Proven Life Expectancy
The first synthetic rubber EPDM roofs were laid in the States by Carlisle™ Syntec in the 1960’s and are still protecting these roofs today.
Well known buildings rely on their EPDM rubber roofing such as Honda factories, Microsoft, Staples, Canary Wharf, Paddington Station, The Play House Theatre, schools, shopping centres, railway stations, hospitals and hundreds of thousands more commercial and residential properties.
Weather Resistant Rubber Roofing
RubberBond™ FleeceBack™ is not affected by extremes of temperature. Installations are in varied climates – from the glaring sun of the Middle East to the freezing cold of Siberia and Alaska.
RubberBond™ rubber roofing is not degraded by ultra violet or ozone as again witnessed by the many installations in hotter climates such as the Middle East.
The colour of a dark grey slate looks natural and doesn’t easily show dirt.
The smooth synthetic rubber finish does not require ballast or chippings that have an annoying habit of blocking gutters and downpipes. RubberBond™ does not support moss growth. It not only looks good on day one but also stays looking good even after 30+ years…
The additional thickness of FleeceBack™ gives a superior finish especially important to maintaining and increasing your homes value.
Flexible Rubber Roofing
RubberBond™ easily bends with no stress, to follow the contours of the roof, upstands to walls, check curb edges, skylights, pipes, terminations into gutters and the like. RubberBond has over 300% flexibility so will easily accommodate building movement.
RubberBond™ FleeceBack™ rubber roofing repels all moisture and does not suffer with age from cracking or crazing. RubberBond™ FleeceBack™ “breathes” allowing vapours to escape, thus preventing blisters.
Extremely ECO friendly materials all applied with little energy – Both Government and the International Kyoto Ecology agreement recommends EPDM rubber as Best Value sustainable eco – sound roofing.
Tried and Tested
