In the commercial roofing industry, reflectivity has been the dominant discussion point for several years, and the Duro-Last Cool Zone roofing system has set the standard for single-ply roof reflectivity and the resulting energy savings. Now the term "sustainability" is receiving a lot of attention, and once again, Duro-Last is setting the bar.
But what does sustainability really mean for building owners, facility managers, contractors, architects, and other specifiers? It means that the design, construction, maintenance, life-cycle impact, adaptive re-use, destruction, and recycling of roofing components must help meet the long-term environmental standards demanded by today's high-performance buildings.
Today, these trends are creating increased demand for a new class of high-performance roofing systems that can satisfy traditional performance criteria installed cost, performance and longevity as well as newer criteria preservation of the environment, energy efficiency, and life-cycle costs.
To be considered sustainable, a roofing system must meet the Five Es of high-performance roofing: Energy, Environment, Endurance, Economics, and Engineering. In each of these areas, the Duro-Last Cool Zone roofing system leads the commercial roofing industry. Click on the icons above to learn more about the Five Es and how the Duro-Last Cool Zone roofing system delivers on the multiple demands of high-performance roofing.
