QBM, one of Ireland’s leading roofing materials suppliers, officially unrolled the future in partnership with Elevate showcasing their new Rubbergard SA at the Grand Hotel in Malahide, Co. Dublin.
Among the main challenges that the construction industry is facing today are a shortage of skilled labour, increased demand for productivity, and the need for durable solutions that are flexible in their application.
The same holds true for the waterproofing industry. Elevate’ RubberGard EPDM SA roofing membrane is made with all these challenges in mind to meet the current and future demands of roofing.
RubberGard EPDM SA represents the next generation of self-adhered roofing membranes. It features a factory-applied secure bond adhesive across the entire membrane, from edge to edge, eliminating the need for bonding adhesives or waiting time. Consequently, RubberGard EPDM SA can be installed much faster than standard EPDM roofing membranes, so more roof areas can be covered in a day and more roofs can be completed in the season.
RubberGard EPDM SA is based on Elevate’s highly durable RubberGard EPDM roofing membrane, together with its unique Secure Bond technology, which ensures the uniform and strong adhesion of the membrane to the substrate. This makes RubberGard EPDM SA even easier to install, reliable, and pleasant to work with.
Speaking at the launch, QBM Director, David Fitzpatrick added, “It was fantastic to unroll the new Elevate RubberGard SA at the Grand Hotel in Malahide last week, with a number of our approved contractors in Ireland. The event was a huge success, enabling us to demonstrate the capabilities of this next-generation membrane and we look forward to the adoption of this self-adhered membrane with our contractors. It is a significant development for the industry and will deliver several benefits to them.”
