EPDM - This synthetic elastomeric membrane has been proving itself for over 40 years.

Its weatherability and low temperature flexibility make it the ideal choice for the most extreme climates. Platinum Brochure

INSULATIONS
PolyISO: Firestone's ISO 95+ is a closed-cell fiberglass-faced polyisocyanurate insulation offered in both flat and tapered panels. ISO 95+ is manufactured in plants located across the United States which all meet the rigorous ISO 9002 standard.

  • ISO 95+ can be used in conjunction with any of Firestone's membrane or metal roofing systems.
  • ISO 95+ passes the most stringent fire and wind uplift tests conducted by Factory Mutual Global, Underwriters Laboratories, and Miami-Dade County.
  • ISO 95+ has the highest R-Value per inch of any commercial roof insulation.
  • Lightweight and easy to cut makes ISO 95+ a contractor favorite.
  • Its recycled content and energy savings ability help the building owner acquire LEED certification.
  • When used with Firestone roofing systems ISO 95+ is included in the total systems warranty.

Tapered Polyiso: 

Tapered ISO 95+ provides an effective and economical solution where substrate slope will not permit efficient drainage.
