Canada (PRWEB) June 29, 2013
For one-step installation of waterproofing protection and reflective surfacing, Garland’s highly reflective Sunburst™ mineral surfacing is now available as a factory-applied option on select StressPly® high-performance membranes. Factory-applied Sunburst minerals provide extreme hail, wind and weather protection, while providing a superior reflective surface that dramatically reduces rooftop temperatures.
According to Charbel Boulos, P.Eng, president of Garland Canada Inc, “The Sunburst mineral surfaced membranes exceed the SRI requirement set by LEED®1 by nearly 20 percent. They are also Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC2) listed products. That will make an appreciable difference in reducing HVAC cooling costs, while providing the excellent surface durability and extended service life for which our StressPly products are known.”
Sunburst surfacing is offered as an optional upgrade with StressPly Plus FR Mineral and comes standard on StressPly EUV FR Mineral and StressPly Max FR Mineral. Garland’s StressPly membranes have numerous application options, including hot, cold, self-adhering, and torch.
