Roofing and Associated Equipment

When the wind blows and the fires burn, keeping the roof on a building and intact is critical. Not only is replacing the roof costly, but the internal damage due to water infiltration or fire can be equally destructive. Roof assemblies and associated equipment that are certified by FM Approvals have undergone a rigorous test program to verify they could withstand a natural hazard or fire event.

The FM Approvals investigation uses fire, wind, hail and more to examine the robustness of the products in preparation for when nature gets angry.
