Protect your roof with the Guardian FM Approved systems
FM Approval is one of the highest attainable quality marks for products and / or systems in the area of risk reduction and damage prevention. It is issued by one of the largest insurers worldwide in this area: FM Global.
FM Approval: the worldwide standard
Did you know that your roof is not FM Approved insured when only the individual products in the roof structure are FM Approved? A client (such as a building owner) indicates whether the FM quality mark on single products is sufficient or whether the complete system should be FM Approved. If the FM insurance only applies when the individual components in the roof structure have been tested as a complete FM system, than this concerns the entire roof system: the substrate, insulation, roofing membrane and fastener.
FM wind load calculation
Our FM Approved fasteners are subjected to the FM wind box tests. There are currently around 17 system build-ups with the Guardian fastener FM Approved. That number is growing steadily, because we constantly work together with (among other things) producers of roofing membranes
Guardian has the quality of knowledge: we are an expert in the field of FM!
