OMG RhinoBond System Leaving Tracks in Europe
AGAWAM — OMG’s RhinoBond System, the leading induction-based technology for installing single-ply roofing systems, has left marks across Europe with more than 125 completed projects and many more in the pipeline. Collectively, these projects represent more than 300,000 square meters (3.2 million square feet) of single-ply roofing.
“In last two years, the RhinoBond System has really started to take off across Europe, as more roofing contractors have seen the simplicity, labor savings, and superior roof-performance benefits that the system can offer,” said Web Shaffer, vice president of marketing for OMG Roofing Products. “We have completed projects across Europe, and we are expanding to new countries in the region, most recently into Southeast Europe.”
RhinoBond is an innovative method for installing thermoplastic and now also clean EPDM membrane. The system consists of a stand-up induction welding tool and magnetic cooling clamps. Contractors install roofing insulation using fasteners and specially coated plates designed specifically for the type of membrane being installed — PVC, TPO, or Clean EPDM. Each plate is then bonded to the roof membrane installed over the top with the RhinoBond plate welding tool. The result is a roofing system that can provide enhanced wind performance with fewer fasteners, fewer membrane seams, and no penetrations of the new membrane.
