Ribbed Roofing Panels: The Look of Metal, the Protection of FiberTite

Metal roofing looks great and can yield many years of protection. However, its reputation to remain leak-free is less than brilliant — particularly for complex roofing designs such as changes in roof direction, valleys, wall seams and conduit or vent penetrations. A FiberTite Simulated Metal Roofing system — also referred to as ribbed metal roofing, contour rib roofing or decorated rib roofing — provides the look of metal and has a proven, long-term track record and thermoplastic welded seams for superior and durable leak protection.

FiberTite roofs installed over 35 years ago are still protecting today because we use:
  • Four layers for long-term proven protection.
  • Twice the fiber content for superior puncture resistance versus even Modified Bitumen.
  • A unique adhesive coat that prevents wicking and enables a molecular bond with the face and back coat to prevent delamination.
  • Proprietary face and back coats engineered with Dow ELVALOY™ Ketone Ethylene Ester KEE-based formula for superior weatherability, chemical resistance and long-term flexibility.
  • A proprietary compound including a coextruded thermally activated ELVALOY™ KEE adhesive strip on the bottom for better adhesion than welding.
Lower Short- and Long-Term Cost
  • Using FiberTite reduces costs for materials, installation and maintenance vs. traditional standing seam metal roofs.
Design Flexibility with No Leaking
  • FiberTite is the only roofing product that meets the industry's most stringent ELVALOY™ KEE specification — ASTM D6754.
Design with Peace of Mind
  • Because of its flexibility and strength, FiberTite can form to even the most intricate contour.
Simulated Metal Roofing - U.S. Patent No. 9,1031,23
  • Seaman Corporation’s FiberTite Simulated Metal Roofing system is a patented rib roofing system. The patent includes the composite roof system and method of installation. It is the only patented simulated metal roofing system on the market.
  • The decorated ribbed metal roofing system is comprised of our proprietary FiberTite ELVALOY™ KEE roofing membrane installed over the roof deck, and aesthetic profiles simulating an architectural roofing system installed directly on the membrane using conventional hot air equipment.
