Sustainable Roofing Products
Sustainable roofing isn't about colour, it's about performance, which is why Carlisle Syntec and
RubberBond offers the most diverse and versatile line of EPDM membranes on the market. When you
need an energy efficient and sustainable roof system, look no further than the single ply membrane
with a half century track record of performance and durability...Carlisle RubberBond EPDM.
Heating Reduction hit the Key to Energy Savings
in Cool Climates
In northern European countries e.g. UK & Ireland, heating
accounts for a significantly larger percentage of total-building
energy consumption than air conditioning. So reducing heating
consumption is more critical to energy savings than reducing air
conditioning usage, especially in cooler climates where heating
degree days (HDD) outnumber cooling degree days (CDD).
Dark Coloured Membrane Outperform White in
Because they attract and collect more heat, dark coloured
roofing materials such as RubberBond FleeceBack EPDM help
building owners save more energy in cooler climates by
reducing a buildings overall heating demand. Black roofs also
create fewer carbon emissions than white roofs in these cooler
climates because of the reduced heating demand they create.
Of course, insulation is the proper key to any energy efficient
roof system, regardless of membrane colour.
That Leak Doesn't always Mean there's a Hole in
In cooler climates, reflective roofing materials may not get warm
enough during the day, which can promote moisture accumulation
within certain roof assemblies. What appears to be faulty
roofing material may actually be condensation forming inside
A combination of RubberBond EPDM and properly design and
installed insulation can help counteract the forces that lead to
condensation related leakage.
Innovation is the Key to Sustainability and Performance
Carlisle offers a number of innovative products that are proven to
increase the long term sustainability and performance of its EPDM roof
systems. From its patented Factory Applied Tape(FAT™) seam technology
to its prefabricated pressure sensitive accessories, RubberBond has
every detail covered. These revolutionary products help reduce the risk of
rooftop failure and increase roof system sustainability by virtually
eliminating the potential for human error during installation.
The Proof is in the Numbers
