TPO Technology

This course reviews the basics of TPO roofing systems and discusses the latest in TPO roofing technology and performance improvements. TPO membrane is the most widely used low-slope roofing material in North America, accounting for more than half of all low-slope roofs installed each year. Thus it is of utmost importance that designers are familiar with TPO membranes and roofing systems. The course also discusses new products, systems, and accessories that have been developed to enhance the securement, longevity, and speed of application of these roof systems. Finally, the course discusses how to specify TPO roof systems to meet building codes, life safety requirements, environmental and sustainability goals, and building owner protection requirements.
