TPO Roofing - Freedom w/ RapidSeam

EverGuard® Freedom TPO Membrane with RapidSeam™ Technology

Single-Ply Roofing Membrane

EverGuard® Freedom™ TPO with RapidSeam™ technology is a fully self-adhered membrane available in 3 versatile colors: ENERGY STAR® qualified white, tan, and gray. Freedom™ membranes combine EverGuard® TPO’s proven technology with an added engineered adhesive preapplied to the bottom of the sheet for quick, hassle-free installation. Freedom™ SA membrane with RapidSeam™ technology includes a unique surface adhesive seaming technology. Freedom™ membranes are especially suited for schools and hospitals, high-rises and limited access buildings, and coastal locations and areas subject to extreme wind conditions. RapidSeam™ technology advantages include installation up to 50 times faster than taped seams and over three times faster than adhesive applications; it eliminates the need for 95% of chemical seam preparation solutions; there are no open flames or hot asphalt on your roof; and the factory-applied adhesive eliminates guesswork or uncertainty by the installer, resulting in uniform application.
