For this project, we installed the innovative RainArmor Commercial Roofing System 6RA-1P-3A. This state-of-the-art hybrid system combines single-ply and built-up roofing for superior durability, longevity, and sustainability.
The RainArmor system is a hybrid design that combines the best features of single-ply and built-up roofing systems. It is made up of three essential components: waterproofing, reinforcement, and reflectivity. The waterproofing grade asphalt preserves the essential properties of asphalt, including flexibility, adhesion, and superior waterproofing. The lightweight, high-performance stitch-bonded polyester reinforcement is 300% stronger and 100% more elastic than fiberglass reinforcements typically used in other roofing systems. The two-phase acrylic elastomeric surfacing ensures long-lasting reflectivity by blocking harmful UV radiation and reflecting the sun’s heat.
RainArmor systems are almost completely UV inert, providing long-lasting protection against the sun’s damaging UV rays. They are also designed to withstand daily thermo-cycling and prevent extreme heating, ensuring the longevity of the waterproofing grade asphalt and preserving the flexibility and adhesion of the system. With proper maintenance, a RainArmor Roofing System can sustain well beyond the useful life of the building.
In addition to the roofing system, we replaced 100 skylights to improve natural light and energy efficiency. The facility now has a cost-effective, lightweight, durable, and sustainable roofing solution.
