The Duro-Last vinyl roof membrane is a proprietary thermoplastic formulation consisting of PVC resins, plasticizers, stabilizers, biocides, flame retardants, and U.V. absorbents. A 14 x 18 threads per inch weft-inserted knitted scrim that is laminated between two layers of PVC film gives the membrane its strength and durability. The Duro-Last single-ply membrane is available in white, gray, dark gray, tan, or terra cotta.
The Duro-Last Roof System is resistant to fire, chemicals, grease, high winds, and punctures, and easily accommodates wide temperature extremes. The Duro-Last Roof System has endured such devastating storms as Hurricane Hugo, and Hurricane Andrew. In 1989, 130 Duro-Last roofs remained undamaged after the force of Hurricane Hugo destroyed many buildings in the Charleston, South Carolina area.

Prefabrication Saves Money and Protects Against Leaks
Duro-Last has been the industry leader in producing custom-fabricated single-ply roofing systems, designing each roof to fit building specifications exactly, and manufacturing it under controlled factory conditions. Duro-Last prefabrication eliminates up to 85% of on-site, rooftop membrane seaming, greatly reducing the likelihood of installation errors and leak problems in the future.
Prefabricated roofing systems are easier to install throughout the year, even during adverse weather conditions. Installation time is reduced so the contractor can get on and off the job quickly. The relatively small amount of roof membrane seaming done in the field is completed with hot-air welding methods, which are virtually unaffected by cold or damp weather conditions.
