Additional Information

Wind uplift resistance of membrane-roofing assemblies

The wind uplift resistance performance rating is based on CAN/CSA-A123.21-14, “Standard Test Method for the Dynamic Wind Uplift Resistance of Membrane-Roofing Systems.”

The following membranes used in the roofing assembly achieved a factored dynamic wind uplift resistance of either −2.4 kPa (−50 psf) or −3.19 kPa (−66.7 psf), depending on the assembly, when using CAN/CSA-A123.21 test method 2 for Adhesive Apply Roof Systems (AARS):

  • Elevate UltraPly™ TPO Flex Adhered
  • Elevate UltraPly™ TPO
  • Elevate UltraPly™ TPO SA

For details on the roofing assembly, see PRI Construction Materials Technologies test report FBP-393-02-01.

The following membranes used in the roofing assembly achieved a factored dynamic wind uplift resistance of −2.4 kPa (−50 psf) when using CAN/CSA-A123.21 test method 2 for AARS:

  • Elevate UltraPly™ TPO Platinum™

For details on the roofing assembly, see EXP Services Inc. test report FPBS-DRC-00225611-04-5100.

The following membranes used in the roofing assembly achieved a factored dynamic wind uplift resistance of −2.9 kPa (−60 psf), when using CAN/CSA-A123.21 test method 2 for Adhesive Apply Roof Systems (AARS):

  • Elevate UltraPly™ TPO Flex SA

For details on the roofing assembly, see NEMO etc. test report 2b-FBP-21-LSWUD-02.A.

The following membranes used in the roofing assembly passed all levels with a factored dynamic wind uplift resistance of −3.2 kPa (−67 psf) when using CAN/CSA-A123.21 test method 1 for Mechanically Attached Roof Systems (MARS):

  • Elevate UltraPly™ TPO
  • Elevate UltraPly™ TPO Platinum™

For details on the roofing assembly, see EXP Services Inc. test report FPBS-DRC-00225611-02-5100.
