New from Polyglass – Velociflex!

By | Polyglass, Velociflex | No Comments


The System Within The Name- the ability to withstand high wind velocity with extreme flexibility.

The Polyglass Velociflex high wind resistant roof assembly is designed for steel or structural concrete decks. This system is suitable for new, reroof (Tear Off) or recover. The assembly consists of insulation (preliminary attached), mechanically attached base sheet, optional base ply with a bonded roof cover.









Simple to understand, explain, support and believe in! Even better — all of these benefits are now available to our architect, engineer, consultant and contractor base with the quality of our products! Click the image above for an installation video.

The density of the fasteners installed on the side lap of the base ply along with the specific Polyglass product being used shapes the ultimate negative uplift capabilities. Along with the assembly design from the deck up, the cap ply bonding method is used to shape and determine the negative uplift capabilities. All methods of attaching the cap ply (APP & SBS) are available depending on the negative uplift desired. Torch, Asphalt, Cold Applied, and Self-Adhered.

CERTA Safety Programs

By | Florida Roofing | No Comments

Safety Programs Significantly Reduce Accidents

The number of serious roofing torch-related fire incidents has decreased significantly since 2004 when the Torch Safety program was implemented in the roofing industry. For example, in 2002, one major insurance company paid 35 roofing torch-related fire losses of more than $1,000 and 11 of more than $500,000. In 2005, after only one year of the Torch Safety program implementation, the same insurance company paid 13 losses of more than $1000, including only two of more than $500,000. The Torch Safety program had made a significant effect on the safe use of roofing torches throughout the roofing industry.

Certified Roofing Torch Application

Contractors that need to be proficient and trained in the application of our roofing materials that require torching (open flame) techniques.  The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) developed a program called Certified Roofing Torch Applicator (CERTA). The CERTA training program is ideal for contractors whose work involves torch applications. The full-day program trains experienced roof system installers on the safe use of roofing torches used to apply polymer-modified bitumen roofing products. CERTA training shows how proper roof system configuration design and application techniques can result in fire-safe installations.

If you are not trained, you need to get trained:

CERTA delivers these requirements through a certification program where authorized trainers delivering effective behavior-based training to roofing workers. MRCA continues to work with NRCA to make sure the program is up-to-date and of the highest quality. There is no comparable training program available in the roofing industry.

Automatic Roof-Hatch Opener

Taking appropriate fall protection measures to prevent Falls through skylights or other roof openings reduces risks and saves lives. Re-roofing exposes workers to the hazards of demolition work at heights. With the proper fall protection, the risk of serious falls can be substantially reduced.

OSHA recommends using a guardrail system, a personal fall arrest system (PFAS). Even experienced roofers are exposed to unpredictable fall hazards caused by uneven sheathing, sudden gusts of wind, loose roofing materials, and surfaces that become slick when wet.

Workers replacing roofs risk permanent injury or death from falls while they demolish old roofs and install new roofing material. Employers are responsible for ensuring compliance with applicable OSHA requirements to assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education, and assistance.

SafePro Automatic Roof-Hatch Opener system includes a handheld remote, a keypad, and an optional backup battery is also available for purchase. For your convenience, if you are ordering BOTH a SafePro Automatic Roof-Hatch Opener AND a SafePro Roof Hatch at the same time, you have the option of purchasing our pre-assembly service. SafePro will install your Automatic Roof-Hatch Opener to your new SafePro Roof-Hatch before we ship it to you.
