Saginaw, Michigan (Vocus/PRWEB) February 09, 2011
Duro-Last® Roofing, Inc. is introducing a new color – terra cotta – to its standard membrane offerings. Other standard Duro-Last membrane colors include white, tan, gray, and dark gray.
Duro-Last developed terra cotta material in response to customer suggestions, according to Steve Ruth, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We’ve always prided ourselves on our tradition of taking customer ideas and putting them into practice,” he said. “This new color will give our authorized contractors another option when the aesthetics of a roofing project need to be considered.”
Like the other standard Duro-Last membranes, the terra cotta material is a proprietary thermoplastic formulation that provides exceptional flexibility, resistance to U.V. radiation, and flame retardance. Terra cotta is available in membrane thickness of 50-mil. Duro-Last adds no “filler” material to increase membrane thickness; our material is the same proven formula from top to bottom. A key Duro-Last difference is the reinforcement scrim within the membrane. It’s a weft-insertion knitted scrim with a density of 14 x 18 threads-per-inch – among the highest in the industry.
Duro-Last has met or exceeded all major fire and wind code requirements and regional approvals as necessary throughout the country. These certifications reinforce Duro-Last’s leadership in providing the consistent, watertight integrity that building owners expect.
