Enhanced Self-Adhered Membranes Reduce Installation Time and Labor Cost

Polyglass U.S.A., Inc., has enhanced the performance of its self-adhered mod bit roofing membranes. Used to design durable low-slope roof systems, the upgraded membranes install faster and cleaner resulting in labor and time savings, according to the manufacturer.

A pioneer of self-adhered roofing technology, Polyglass manufactures a full line of multi-surface membranes that do not require a torch or hot asphalt during application. With its cutting-edge ADESO Dual Compound Self-Adhered Technology, the company produces membranes with APP or SBS modified asphalt compounds with a top layer acting as the weathering surface and an aggressive self-adhered compound on the bottom layer.

Polyglass recently added a new labor-saving feature, patent-pending SEALLap Ultra, to promote instantaneous watertight side lap seams in all the Self-Adhesive Membranes. SEALLap Ultra is a self-adhered compound applied on the side lap area to increases the bond strength and long-term adhesion of the seams.

Additionally, to reduce installation time, Polyglass developed FASTLap — a granule-free end lap that installs hassle-free. FASTLap is designed to promote watertight end laps and enables easy and safe installs.

“We are proud of the advancements made to the self-adhered products,” said Scott Lelling, director of strategic marketing. “Polyglass continues to invest in technology and discover better ways to roof, passing on savings to the roofing contractor while helping them to meet the needs of their customers.”

Metal Roofing and Siding Panels Recreate the Look of Reclaimed Metal

Reclaimed Metal Rust is a pre-painted metal roofing and siding panel from Western States Metal Roofing that recreates the look of reclaimed metal. The panel is made of new steel that looks like an old barn. The panel features white and silver coloring with orange and reddish rust streaks throughout its design to mimic the look of old, faded galvanized that is rusting. The panel is available in Kynar 500 paint system and comes in ten different profile finishes. Reclaimed Metal Rust is a proprietary color of Western States Metal Roofing and offers a solution for architects and designers that want the look of reclaimed metal without the problems of reclaimed metal.

“Our customers wanted something that looks like faded galvanized and a rusted roof at the same time. Previously, the only way to get something like that would be to locate an old building that had reclaimed sheet metal on the roof,” said Paul Rubio, Vice President of Western States Metal Roofing. “That’s expensive and hard to find. We thought there has to be a better way. That led us to create the Reclaimed Metal Rust panels, which are new steel panels that look like they were taken from an old barn that’s 100 years old.”

According to the company, this specialty paint print is available in coil, flats, metal roofing, siding, and wall panels. Reclaimed Metal Rust panels come in a PVDF/Kynar 500 paint finish. These panels are designed for interior and exterior applications.

New Bath and Dryer Vent Designed for Shingle Roofs

Lifetime Tool & Building Products LLC introduces the Lifetime Bath-Dryer Vent for shingle and metal roofs. This vent is pleasing to the eye, complements any quality installation, and offers a 50-year product warranty. The proprietary design enables the housing structure to mount to the plate without rivets, fasteners and sealants — common leak points in existing vents. The vent assembly is crimped into the seamless deep-drawn plate with an EPDM gasket, which is designed to guarantee a forever water-tight seal.

The shingle vent plate is 24-gauge galvanized Kynar with 4 inches of flashing on the sides, 6 inches at the top and 3.5 inches at the bottom. According to the manufacturer, most existing vents have less than half of these needed requirements, which exponentially increases the likelihood of edge leaking. In independent laboratory testing, the Lifetime Bath-Dryer Vent exceeded 110 mph in the ASTM T166-18 – Wind Driven Rain Test.

The product features a 24-gauge galvanized Kynar cap that is clad onto a high-temperature polymer with a heat deflection above 212 degrees Fahrenheit. According to the company, this carefully tested premium polymer ensures that the Bath-Dryer Vent retains its mechanical properties for decades of use.

Additionally, the cap assembly is attached with two black oxide stainless fasteners that are easily removed with a screwdriver and 316L stainless clips for easy removal of the cap for periodic maintenance, perfect for multi-family roofs. A gold anodized aluminum damper, preventing white corrosion, and its passivated stainless-steel axle is mounted on the angled structure to ensure condensation drainage and provides protection from wind and rain penetration. Its built-in weep holes, wind walls and recessed EPDM noise bumpers help eliminate clatter. The EPDM bumpers also permit a small amount of warm air to pass between the structure and damper to reduce the chance of condensate freezing. A snap-in high-quality polymer frame has a stainless steel screen included for use in bath venting only.

Finishing the assembly is a proprietary 6-inch-high, 4-inch round, 26-gauge G90 galvanized drop with a unique button punch/window snap connection assembly. A 4-inch/3-inch reducer is also included.

“I am passionate about creating true solutions for roofing components, and I believe that the Lifetime Bath-Dryer Vent is a game changer,” said Roger Cline, Managing Partner and Chief Engineer at Lifetime Tool & Building Products LLC.

Fluid-Applied, Seamless Membrane Is Durable, Virtually Odorless, Easy to Apply

Garland’s first ever fluid-applied seamless membrane, LiquiTec, forms a virtually impenetrable surface over aged modified bitumen, metal and single-ply roof systems, adding years of waterproofing protection. LiquiTec is an aliphatic polyurea coating system with a tightly bonded molecular structure that provides strength and durability similar to truck bed liners. LiquiTec is built to protect roof surfaces from damage caused by hail, foot traffic, wind scour and other impact.

According to the manufacturer, LiquiTec fully and partially reinforced systems exhibit extremely high tensile strength and remain flexible at temperatures down to -60°F (-51°C), which helps keep the coating from cracking or becoming brittle to ensure a complete watertight seal and long-term waterproofing protection. In addition to its strength, LiquiTec contains zero VOCs and is extremely low odor to allow roof work to be completed with minimal or no disruption at sensitive locations like schools, hospitals and other structures where people are present. 

This two-component product also undergoes a chemical cure process, rather than a moisture cure, so it cures quickly and with less disruption from weather, allowing for faster installation and waterproofing protection. 

“LiquiTec is the answer to so many of our customers’ waterproofing needs. Its unique formulation, strength and flexibility provides the right amount of toughness combined with superior waterproofing protection,” said Ed Buczek, Garland’s senior product manager of roof coatings. “And to top it off, the fact that it is extremely low odor, highly flexible, resistant to fungi and chemically cured allows it to be installed nearly anywhere and perform in the most extreme environments.”

Standing Seam Roof Clamp Accommodates Variety of Seam Profiles

Dynamic Fastener offers the Standing Seam Roof Clamp, which is designed for use on a standing seam roof. The DFSSRC-03 installs over the clip on a completely seamed, attached roof section a minimum 4 feet or further from the edge with no damage to roof panels or finished seams and no roof penetrations. The clamp accommodates seams up to 1 inch wide, and the unique “flip” design of the DFSSRC-03 allows for fit on both the Butler MR24 and Butler VSR-style seams just by removing the bolts, turning one side of the clamp around the ring and replacing the bolts. According to the company, any roof that meets similar loadings, specifications, and codes of the Butler styles will accept these anchors for safety tie off.

This product serves as a part of a fall protection system with compatible equipment as determined by your competent person. A safety lanyard, of a maximum length 6-foot length, with a deceleration (shock absorber) device and full body harness should be used with the clamp. Clamps have been tested to meet and exceed the following OSHA standards: 1926.502 (d) (2), (3), (4) and (15): Anchorages for attachments of personal fall arrest equipment.

The clamp features durable, all steel construction with zinc electroplate finish, and it designed to be lightweight, reusable, and easy to use. The clamp must be attached to a fully seamed panel and must be attached over a clip that is bolted/screwed down (generally to a purlin). The flange of the clamp must be hooked under the seam before the four bolts are tightened to a torque of 50 ft./lb.

“Contractors tell me they appreciate the ease of installation,” says Ken Webb, Sales Manager, Dynamic Fastener. “Their customers, the building owners, will often request to buy the clamps from the contractor so their maintenance crews can use them as tie-off points when working on the roof. When it comes to safety, you need a reliable product that’s also affordable. You definitely get that with the DFSSRC-03 Standing Seam Roof Clamp.”
