SOPREMA Canada Now Recommends Flameless Solutions
With the constant aim of raising the standards of the industry, SOPREMA Canada is announcing that flameless solutions will be promoted and recommended from now on, on all types of roofing structures. “It’s been a while now since we decided to take part in this trend towards flameless solutions in the industry. As an essential and innovative player in the roofing sector, we care deeply about improving building construction and standards in our industry,” said Richard Voyer, Vice-President and CEO of SOPREMA North America.
Flameless solutions for roofs are far from new on the market and SOPREMA Canada has a long-standing expertise in the development of these products. The technology has evolved considerably in recent years and SOPREMA’s product offering and solutions have vastly increased and diversified. In fact, SOPREMA Canada has the most comprehensive range of flameless products and assemblies for all types of roofing on the market, whether for SBS-modified bitumen, PMMA and PVC membranes, or conventional roof systems with factory laminated panels or protected membrane roof (PMR) assemblies. Not only are flameless roofing membranes high performance products, they are safer for workers and the environment. Moreover, they are just as quick to install as other solutions on the market, covered by the same warranties, tested to CSA A123.21, cost-effective and can be adapted for all building types and all year long. They represent no disruption to the building’s operations: they involve no flame, no fastening, no odours and low levels of VOCs. Please note that SOPREMA will continue the manufacturing and sale of traditional heat-welded systems, and that it will still be possible to weld on non-combustible substrates. However, SOPREMA now recommends using flameless products on all surfaces, including concrete. The roofing industry is changing, and SOPREMA Canada will continue to contribute to its evolution by investing in research and development as well as education.
