  • 2. CAN I WALK ON A FIRESTONE RUBBERCOVER EPDM ROOF?
     

    Yes, the roof can be accessed for periodical maintenance, but take care to ensure no sharp objects (e.g., small stones) are attached to the underside of footwear. In case of regular foot traffic, the membrane must be protected with a walkway, e.g., pavers placed on protective rubber feet.

  • 8. IS ONE-SIDED APPLICATION OF THE MEMBRANE SUFFICIENT?
     

    Bonding adhesive must always be applied to both surfaces. Water-based adhesive can be applied to either to the substrate only (wet mate method), or using the two-sided contact method, i.e., both to the underside of the membrane and the substrate, depending on various
    factors like weather conditions. Please refer to the "Installation Guidelines for Modular Water
    based Adhesive".
