Mechanically Attached Roofing Systems

A FiberTite® mechanically attached roofing system uses flat roof insulation fasteners and stress plates that are designed and engineered to secure the insulation and cover boards to steel, wood and concrete roof decks. Mechanically fastened roofs attach primarily with screws and metal plates rather than glue. Offered in standard roll goods, mechanically fastened roofing systems work well in places where a high wind uplift performance is required.

Benefits of Mechanically Attached Roofing

There are several benefits of using mechanically attached roofing systems compared to other flat roof replacement systems, including:

  • Easily engineered for higher uplifts
  • Surface exposed to allow for ease of repair and cleaning
  • No foul smells during installation
  • Lightweight and adjustable to unusual roof configuration
  • Obtainable with single-ply roof systems of any kind

FiberTite earns its name because “Fiber” delivers the membrane’s overall strength. Our high-denier, high-tenacity yarns are packed into a very “Tite” pattern that creates the roofing industry’s toughest base fabric. It’s a far cry from the scrim you’ll find in most reinforced  thermoplastic membranes. This fabric foundation makes FiberTite ideal for mechanically fastened roofing systems.
