Characteristics of Fakro roofing underlays and membranes:

1. Energy efficiency

Fakro Roofing membranes do not require any air gap between the membrane and the layer of insulation, meaning the membrane adds to the function of the insulation, creating an overall result of thicker insulation for improved energy efficiency. In addition, the air and watertightness ensure maximum performance of the insulative layer.

2. Ease of installation

With no need for a ventilation gap between the membrane and insulation, the membrane is much easier to install, resulting in both time and cost savings.

3. Increased roof longevity

Protection of insulation and internal roofing materials from moisture, dust and weather increases the longevity of the of the roof life.

4. Healthy internal microclimate

Keeping the internal roofing materials dry and clean using a roofing membrane, means the risk of mould and fungus growth is negated and the internal microclimate is kept warm, dry and healthy.

5. Wide application range

Fakro roofing membranes are highly resistant to temperature and moisture and therefore can be installed in a number of roofing structures including those cover with metal.
