PRODUCTS TO BE SHOWCASED AT BOOTH #1909:
Innovi™TPO Single-Ply Commercial Roofing Membrane Systems
InnoviTPO Single-Ply Roofing Systems offers the latest commercial innovation from IKO, available in Canada and the eastern U.S. The new thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) membrane systems expand on the company’s low-slope roofing expertise. Designed for exceptional performance, InnoviTPO single-ply roofing membranes are the culmination of significant investment in breakthrough processing technologies and a proprietary weathering formulation, known as MATRIX™.
Offered in 100- or 200-foot rolls, the membranes are available in 45-, 60- and 80-mil thicknesses, with widths ranging from 5 to 12 feet, and they come in white, grey or tan. Suitable for use with mechanically attached, fully adhered or induction-welded roofing systems, IKO’s InnoviTPO is heat-welded at the seams to create a continuous, water-resistant roofing membrane for low-slope commercial roofs.

Dynasty® Class 3 — Residential
IKO’s acclaimed Dynasty® premium-quality laminated performance shingles will now carry a Class 3 impact resistance rating*, which further distinguishes it as a top-performing shingle, offering peace of mind and protection from inclement weather. Depending on geographic location, with the new Class 3 rating, some homeowners may qualify for discounts on their insurance policy.
Dynasty performance shingles feature ArmourZone®, a reinforced woven band that fortifies the nail zone to help resist tears and blow-offs. In addition, IKO’s FastLock™ sealant quickly creates a strong bond to keep the shingles in place even in extremely high winds. Built with a 1 ¼-inch nailing zone to create an enlarged nailing area for a faster, easier and more accurate installation, this shingle’s large 5 ⅞-inch exposure area and True Square Advantage means three shingle bundles will always match a true roofing square and create a look that homeowners will love. With advanced high-definition, color-blending technology, the design is available in 13 nature-inspired fresh, bold colors. For more information, see our launch video here.
