Installation of rooftop solar panels continues to be more common as an increasing number of property owners look to save on energy costs and improve their buildings’ sustainability profiles. Solar panels, however, are dark objects which can reach temperatures as high as 200 degrees Fahrenheit, leading to the risk that the roofing membrane could fail prematurely. GAF Materials Corporation has addressed this issue by developing EverGuard® Extreme™ TPO Single-Ply Roofing. The first TPO membrane designed with the use of building-integrated solar in mind, it is designed with higher reflectivity and heat resistance and can withstand conditions that far exceed even the most rigorous proposed ASTM standards. It is available in white in both 60 and 80 mil thicknesses as smooth and fleeceback membranes. For more information, visit www.gaf.com or stop by Booth 903.
