2. The unique benefit of Greenroof UltraPly TPO roofing membrane

Greenroof UltraPly TPO Roofing Systems offer a unique combination of features and benefits which have been demonstrated on rooftops around the world
  • Ease of application

Greenroof UltraPly TPO is available in widths up to 3.05 m, providing fast, economical coverage. It is a lightweight membrane that offers a variety of installation options for low slope roofing applications in both refurbishment and new construction projects. 
  • Hot-air welded seams 

Greenroof UltraPly TPO hot-air welded seams result in fast, economical installation, consistent seam quality and high strength. Heat welded seams form a homogeneous bond by fusing the top and bottom sheets together. UltraPly TPO’s seaming process enables year-round installation in a variety of weather conditions. 
  • Superior weatherability and durability 

The Greenroof UltraPly TPO membrane contains no plasticizers and no halogen flame retardants, resulting in outstanding resistance to UV radiation and ozone. The membrane also exhibits strong resistance to algae and fungi growth, as well as common rooftop chemicals. 

  • Outstanding reflectivity 

Greenroof UltraPly TPO’s light colored surface reflects sunlight before it can be absorbed and converted into heat energy, eventually improving the energy efficiency of buildings in hot climates. 

  • Color 

The standard colors for Firestone UltraPly TPO membrane are white and grey.

3. Environment friendly

Greenroof UltraPly TPO is committed to operating in an environmentally responsible manner. An environmental management system which complies with ISO 14001 requirements has been implemented throughout the company’s manufacturing facilities. This certification is a testimony to the company’s environmental awareness
  • Eco-friendly membrane

Greenroof UltraPly TPO is a heat reflective and energy efficient roofing membrane. The membrane’s chlorine-free, non-halogenated and plasticizer-free formulation, in combination with the hot-air welded seaming method, further contributes to caring for the environment. The UltraPly TPO membrane has been certified by the Singapore Green Labelling Scheme (SGLS) as “Environmentally improved - low emission, low toxicity”. The SGLS is also recognized as a member of the international Global Ecolabelling Network (GEN), allowing certification by mutual recognition of SGLS endorsed products by other members of the network. The UltraPly TPO membrane can also be easily recycled. These ecological benefits make it an environmentally friendly roofing solution
  • Green Roof System

Due to the ever-increasing concern for the environment, green roofs are becoming a regular part of our landscape. Greenroof UltraPly TPO has successfully passed the FLL, as well as the EN 13948 test for root penetration resistance in green roofs. It is an ideal membrane for combination with extensive green roof systems using lightweight and low maintenance sedum vegetation. 
The ecological benefits of a green roof system are numerous:
• Reduction of the urban heat island effect
• Reduction of energy costs by helping to keep the cold out in winter and the heat out in summer 
• Stormwater management through water retention and increased evaporation 
• New habitats for plants and animals 
• Improved air quality by filtering dusts and pollutants and converting CO2 into oxygen 
• Reduction of noise pollution from outside the building 
In addition, the installation of a white reflective UltraPly TPO membrane and/or a green roof system can contribute to multiple credit points towards a LEED certification of the building

4. The Solutions for many applications

Greenroof UltraPly TPO lightweight, flexible, scrim-reinforced membrane is engineered to provide dependable performance in most commercial roofing applications. Firestone offers a variety of installation options to meet the most demanding rooftop challenges for both renovation and new build applications.
  • Mechanically Attached System

The Greenroof UltraPly TPO Mechanically Attached System uses sheets up to 3.05 m wide. The width of the sheet used and the fastening pattern differ to accommodate specific wind loadings. The sheets are attached in the overlap using approved plates and fasteners placed approx. 50 mm from the inside panel edge. Panels are heat-welded using heat-welding equipment in line with Firestone specifications. Roof perimeters and penetrations are flashed in accordance with Firestone specifications

  • Fully Adhered System

In the Greenroof UltraPly TPO Fully Adhered System, the TPO sheets are fully adhered directly to an acceptable substrate using contact adhesive. Adjoining sheets are overlapped at least 75 mm and heatwelded. Roof perimeters and penetrations are flashed in accordance with Firestone specifications. The Fully Adhered System can be applied on any building where the roof deck is compatible with the insulation fastening system and will provide sufficient pull-out resistance. The insulation used must be compatible with the Firestone contact adhesives

  • Ballasted System

In the Greenroof UltraPly TPO Ballasted System, the TPO sheets are loosely laid over an acceptable substrate. Adjoining sheets are overlapped at least 75 mm and heat-welded. Roof perimeters and penetrations are flashed in accordance with Firestone specifications. Once completed, the TPO membrane is held in place using approved river washed gravel or smooth paving stones, with a minimum weight of 50 kg/m2 . The Ballasted System can be applied on any building that can accommodate the extra load of ballast and where the roof slope does not exceed 10%
