A total of 2,500 m² of Firestone Building Products’ RubberGard EPDM roofing membranes were used on the 12 modules of the media library, fully adhered to the substrate. For a minimalist aesthetic, the aluminum joinery was also covered with RubberGard EPDM. The membrane’s flame-free attachment method enabled a comfortable, safe and fast installation. With a thickness of 1.5 mm and a surface weight of 1.85 kg/m², the membrane did not weigh down the metal and glass roof structure and further facilitated handling on the jobsite.
With a life expectancy of more than 50 years, EPDM roofing membranes have an excellent resistance to UV rays, ozone and heat aging. Their elasticity, greater than 300%, is a guarantee of flexibility, allowing the membrane to accommodate the eventual movements of the building and the temperature fluctuations.
