Sarnafil? Roof Membranes

Sarnafil? membranes are the best time tested solution to stay watertight (application by trained and registered contractors).

Performance
Sarnafil? membranes have a proven long term manufacturing experience of over 50 years.

Benefits
Sarnafil? membranes are UV and fire-resistant, provide excellent wind uplift resistance and are FM approved.

Sustainable
Sarnafil? membranes provide a long life cycle, low environmental impact; are recyclable and LEED, Green Globes?; BBA, BREEAM?; DGNB? and NSF compliant.

Sarnafil? Mechanically Attached & Adhered Systems

Multiple Installation Options
The Sarnafil? range includes products from both installation options: Mechanically fastened or adhered.

Performance
The mechanically fastened version allows for fast application by installing fasteners and plates through the membrane seam to the approved substrate and is the economical choice. The adhered version is secured to the approved substrate using adhesive, providing the best solution for an esthetically pleasing yet robust assembly, that contours well to uniquely shaped roofs. It does not require any fastener penetration through the membrane.

Applications
The Sarnafil? mechanically attached system is an excellent option for metal or wood deck system assemblies. The Sarnafil? adhered system can be applied on steel, concrete or wood deck assemblies.

Sarnafil? Self-Adhered System

Quick & Easy
The Sarnafil? Self-Adhered System only requires a one-step pressure-sensitive “peel and stick” application process without the labor and VOC fumes associated with liquid primers and adhesives.

Performance
The Sarnafil? self-adhered system allows for a fast & robust as well as cost-competitive application in accelerating the
construction schedule by eliminating the need for additional adhesives or solvents, not requiring any cure time and reducing the amount of waste.

Applications
The Sarnafil? self-adhered system can be applied to steel, wood and concrete assemblies. It is excellent for cold weather applications.

Sika? SolarMount-1 (SSM1) Roof System

PV Mounting System
Sika? SolarMount-1 is a non-penetrating system designed and engineered to perform under extreme conditions.

Performance
Sika? SolarMount-1 reduces the amount of required labor by being surface mounted via hot air welding to the Sarnafil? membrane without any penetrations. Normally, no ballast is required for installation.

Applications
Sika? SolarMount-1 is versatile and lightweight, wind tested and warranted.
