Elevate UltraPly TPO 1.8 mm (gray) + ISO 95+ GL



Elevate’s 1.8 mm thick grey UltraPly™ TPO membrane was chosen as roofing system, attached over Elevate ISO 95+™ GL polyisocyanurate (PIR) insulation boards. Elevate’s InvisiWeld™ induction welding system was used to attach the membrane, providing an aesthetic finish.

"There were several reasons for choosing Elevate’s UltraPly™ TPO roofing system" commented Designer John Ngooi of Nexus Idea Consultancy Sdn Bhd. "One of them was that it offers superior airtight, waterproof features and provides a 20-year system warranty after installation. Besides that, Elevate’s ISO 95+™ GL insulation boards provide a very low U-value, which helps to reduce the energy consumption of the factory."
