They are uniquely formulated to withstand ponding water. Moisture will not pass through the membrane and ponding water will not affect the performance or warranty of PVC single-ply membranes.
These membranes are produced in labor-saving 5’, 6’, and 10’ foot widths, providing the building owner with a roof that has 67% fewer seams than Modiﬁed Bitumen roofs of a comparable size. This product will contribute toward LEED® credit requirements in new construction due to its highly reﬂective white color and it Title 24 compliant on all re-roofs.
PVC and KEE Roofing Systems
Proven Long-Term Solutions for Commercial and Industrial Buildings
PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and KEE (Ketone Ethylene Ester) single ply membranes are often the ideal choice for commercial and industrial buildings because PVC provides the strength and durability needed for long-term performance. PVC and KEE membranes have withstood the test of time with over 40 years in the roofing industry. Unlike TPO which is still going through formulation changes, the consistency of PVC has remained virtually unchanged for 40 years.
Installing a PVC or KEE single ply roofing systems can be done directly over most existing membranes, eliminating adding to land fills as well as causing minimal disruption to building occupants. In addition, PVC and KEE membranes have the highest fire resistance of any roofing membrane, providing added protection for the building and its occupants. Choosing a PVC roofing system for your building will help to ensure a long service life with excellent performance.
ENERGY SAVINGS AND FIRE SAFETY
PVC and KEE bright white roofing membranes provide excellent reflectivity, helping to save on air conditioning costs, reduce total operational costs, and keep the building and its occupants cool. PVC and KEE membranes also provide exceptional fire resistance; in the event of a fire, the PVC will self-extinguish when the ignition source is removed, reducing the chance of the fire spreading to other parts of the building.
RESISTANT TO FOOT TRAFFIC
PVC and KEE roofing membranes are strengthened by tenacious, polyester or fiberglass reinforcing fabrics that enhance resistance to the punctures and tears that can be caused by routine foot traffic. PVC and KEE are classified as Type IV – the strongest/highest rating available – according to the ASTM D4434 PVC Standard. Most TPO membranes are only rated as Type III. Many manufacturers offer a puncture resistance warranty coverage as well as a 0% exclusion to standing water.
QUICK INSTALLATION TIME
Because PVC and KEE membranes are available in in 5', 6’, 10’ and 12' widths, they are fast and easy to apply, allowing installations to be completed quickly with minimal disruption to the occupants. PVC and KEE single ply roofing membranes have the largest selection of systems to match any requirement, including fully adhered and mechanically fastened assemblies. PVC and KEE membranes are stocked at most every roofing supply location across the nation for quick shipment to jobsites.
FULL LINE OF LABOR-SAVING FLASHING ACCESSORIES
PVC and KEE single ply roofing systems offer a complete line of custom and prefabricated flashing accessories to fit any size and shape of penetration or corner. The prefabricated flashing accessories are made from PVC membrane enhanced with KEE which provides excellent protection at critical transition areas. No conventional roofing assembly comes with 100% compatible accessories.
PVC SYSTEM WARRANTIES
Building owners are more and more retaining their buildings for a longer period of time, therefore long term warranties are a valuable commodity. PVC and KEE warranties range from 5 to 30 years, depending on your system. Conventional built-up hot asphalt roofing system only offer 10 to 12 year warranties, or the manufacturer charges a premium to extend the warranty. Total System Warranties and No-Dollar-Limit warranties are also available with the PVC and KEE systems. These warranties do not depreciate over time or require a costly maintenance program. With a Total System Warranty, you can rest assured that your roofing investment is protected.
