Low-slope roof systems developed by Polyglass U.S.A. Inc. have passed wind uplift tests, providing contractors with more wind-resistant roofing options. All roof assemblies exceeded their targeted wind uplift values, resulting in new Miami-Dade, Florida Building Codes, and Texas Department of Insurance approvals.
“The results affirm that roofers and building owners can trust our products to perform in high wind conditions,” says Ariel Lender, director of product management & technical services. “We continue to offer high performing solutions that can be installed on all types of roof decks.”
Wind uplift testing was performed by a third-party in accordance with FM4470/TAS114(J)/UL1897. The multi-ply roof systems consisted of torch adhered modified bitumen membranes with mechanically fastened cover boards over steel decks. Third-party testing extends beyond Florida and is applicable across the U.S.
