UL Class A metal roofs protect rooftops, buildings and occupants from the spread of fire, which is key to safeguarding surrounding structures and communities. By offering the fire protection of UL Class A roofing materials in an underlayment, CoreGard Technology reduces installation time, labor costs and the overall number of materials for commercial roofing projects.
To achieve the same fire standard without CLAD-GARD SA-FR with CoreGard Technology, contractors would need to install a separate product, entirely, for their metal roofing systems. Up to six layers of total materials and installation stages would be necessary to accomplish this feat, which is accomplished in just four layers using CLAD-GARD SA-FR underlayment on a metal roofing system.
CLAD-GARD SA-FR with CoreGard Technology is safer, overall, for installers due to its skid-resistant top film. It is also ASTM 1970 approved and self-seals around nails or metal roofing fasteners. In addition, it provides a 120-day exposure. Primer is not required in temperatures of 40 F or higher, making the process a quick and easy one.
CLAD-GARD SA-FR with CoreGard Technology is covered by the Firestone Building Products Platinum Warranty for up to 30 years.
