Commercial TPO Roof – The Right Choice For Your Commercial Building
The key component of a commercial TPO roof is the design of the flexible thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) roofing membrane. The flexibility of the TPO roof membrane is comprised of ethylene propylene rubber into a polypropylene matrix and produced with a polyester weft inserted reinforcement. The TPO roof thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) roofing membrane uses the flexibility of rubber and the heat weldability of the thermoplastic flexible sheet to create a lay flat characteristic that is highly durable, molds to most permanent roof fixtures, and is highly reflective and energy efficient.
Key features & benefits of TPO membranes for commercial roofs
- Environmentally friendly
TPO membrane is a highly heat-reflective and energy efficient commercial roofing membrane. The light-colored reflective surface reflect harmful UV radiation from the sun before it is absorbed by your roof and converted into heat energy that radiates inside your commercial building. This reflective property reduces the cooling costs. The commercial TPO roofing material can be recycled. The TPO membrane’s chlorine-free, non-halogenated and plasticizer-free formulation and hot-air welded seams contribute to the system’s environmental friendliness.
- Superior durability and longevity
Commercial TPO membranes contains no plasticizers and no halogen flame retardants resulting in outstanding resistance to UV radiation and ozone. The membrane also exhibits strong resistance to mold growth and common rooftop cleaning and industrial chemicals.
- Ease of TPO roof membrane application
The 36 inch TPO roofing membrane widths allow for fast, and economical coverage. This lightweight TPO membrane offers a great commercial roofing system for low slope and flat roofs. In addition, commercial TPO roofing membranes are a great resource for roof refurbishments and new commercial/residential construction.
- Hot-air welded seams
TPO roofs possess hot-air welded seams which not only result in fast and inexpensive installation, but the consistent seam of the TPO roof system provide higher durability and increase the overall roof integrity. The TPO heat welded seams for a continuous bond that fuses the top and bottom sheets as one. This seam structure allows the commercial TPO roof membrane to be installed year around regardless of the weather conditions.
- Compatible with green roof systems & photovoltaic installations
The incredible durability of the TPO membrane roof system makes this system work well with green roof systems. The durability of the TPO roof membrane is resistant to root penetration when green roof systems use low maintenance sedium plants. The commercial TPO roof membrane can easily be combined with any type of PV installation due to its reflectivity, high temperature resistance and outstanding wear and tear resistance.
