Pressure Sensitive RUSS Strip
In common with most single ply material EPDM will, overtime, try and shrink by up to 10% back to the centre. The base tie in controls the membrane movement and stops the membrane pulling away where the membrane turns up through an angle change. The rest of the movement is accommodated by the ClassicBond membrane and its ability to elongate by over 300%.
ClassicBond PS RUSS (Reinforced Universal Secure Strip) is used to mechanically secure EPDM rubber roofing membranes to the substrate. The strip has tape pre-applied along one edge, and can be installed horizontally or vertically in conjunction with Seam Fastening Plates below the EPDM membrane for additional membrane securement.
Seam Fastening Plates
Used with RUSS strip to securely clamp the RUSS to the vertical or horizontal surface. Must be used in conjunction with the appropriate fasteners for the substrate.
