Duro-Last introduces new vinyl rib roofing system

November 02, 2009 |


Duro-Last Roofing Inc., is pleased to announce the introduction of the Duro-Last Vinyl Rib roofing system, part of the Duro-Last Designer Series of roofing products.

The Duro-Last Vinyl Rib roofing system is ideal for commercial and residential roofing applications where both the aesthetic appearance of architectural standing seam and the proven, watertight performance of a single-ply roofing system are desired.

The Vinyl Rib system consists of the Duro-Last single-ply membrane and separate vinyl ribs that are attached to the installation membrane. After membrane sections are fully-adhered to the roof deck, ribs are heat-welded to the membrane to ensure a permanent, secure installation.

Flashings for penetrations and other transition areas are precision-fabricated in a Duro-Last facility; there is no on-site assembly of these pieces. The Duro-Last Vinyl Rib system is complete, with all components delivered to the job site, ready to be installed by an authorized Duro-Last contractor.

The Vinyl Rib system is available in light gray and white, and uses Duro-Last’s 60-mil membrane, fully-adhered to the roof deck (no mechanical fasteners) to provide a smooth roof surface.

“Much of our business focuses on providing innovative product options that enable authorized Duro-Last contractors to address their customers’ unique roofing needs,” said Steve Ruth, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Duro-Last. “The Vinyl Rib system combines the proven watertight characteristics of our single-ply membrane with the aesthetic appearance of standing seam. Another benefit is that, in most areas, this solution will be less expensive than a traditional architectural metal roof.”
