If you are familiar with single-ply roofing systems, then
you’ve likely heard the different thickness such as 40 mil, 50 mil, 60 mil
etc. Duro-Last wanted to take a closer
look into the thickness of these membranes and how they are constructed from
manufacturer to manufacturer.
As shown in the image above, there are 3 layers to a typical
single-ply roof system. The top layer is called the “Performance Layer” because
its what takes the beating from the sun, foot traffic, third party damage.
Duro-Last examined 12 other membranes to note how thick
their performance layer was, in comparison with Duro-Last 50 mil membrane.
Not even the 60 mil membranes from our competitors were able
to surpass the 28-mil top layer of the Duro-Last membrane. That’s interesting
right? The top layer is the first line of defense, but the other manufacturers
choose to build their layer with the bulk of their thickness below the
scrim. We cannot say for sure why, but
the ASTM 4434 only requires 16 mil
above the scrim. Duro-Last far surpasses this minimum requirement to provide
thickness where it truly counts.
Before you choose the roof system based on the thickness, be
sure you know the makeup of the roof membrane.
It may not be what it seems.
We’d be happy to speak with you at length about these
differences, give us a call. (740) 323-3174

have more freedom to customize their fall protection plan under the
new OSHA 1910 Walking-Working Surfaces Standard that went into effect
in January. But they need to take great care: the flexibility it affords
The new rule redefines safe distances from the roof edge and the degree of protection required within specified footage. OSHA has also recognized other forms of fall protection such as fall restraint and arrest systems and included them as suitable solutions in the new standards. There’s also the nature of the job to consider: “temporary and infrequent tasks” conducted further from the edge require less stringent protection. Though these are only two stipulations in the update, they give employers and building owners the ability to choose between various fall protection equipment. This puts the onus on a decision maker who might not be aware of the pros and cons of safety equipment in certain scenarios. Read the rest of the blog…
