At the heart of each IKO UPXL System is an extremely robust, virtually indestructible waterproofing membrane. These membranes have been engineered to incorporate thicker coatings with enhanced polymer content and high-strength reinforcements for outstanding durability, high flexibility and unrivalled workability with built-in fire retardant technology.

The IKO UPXL high performance bitumen membrane flat roofing system has been tested under ENV1187 and has been classified as BROOF(t4) in accordance with BS EN 13501-5: 2005 fire classification of construction products and building elements – classification using data from external fire exposure to roof tests. This is made possible with the use of IKO Prevent Graphite Fire Wall Technology with self-extinguishing properties.
