Armourglass PLUS

IKO offers a wide range of shingles with a high quality standard.

The new Armourglass PLUS exceeds by far the most severe worldwide standards.
This roof shingle contains APP modified bitumen.
Even though our most accessible shingles, Superglass and Superglass Biber, already offer a high quality, you can imagine that this APP modified bitumen takes our mid-range roof shingle Armourglass PLUS to the next level of quality.

Guaranteed APP modified bitumen

All IKO Shingles are conform the ETA (European Technical Assessment), so any IKO roof shingle has been proven to be from excellent quality.
But by adding APP modified bitumen to the Armourglass PLUS, a different level of quality has been reached . And just to be sure we always offer the promised quality, our Armourglass PLUS shingles will be checked on a regular basis. These additional product quality checks will be done by TÜM, the Technical University of Munich, one of the most notable German institutes of technology.

Constant quality assured!

Shingle offering excellent UV protection

One of the advantages of this PLUS range is the additional UV Protection. Each IKO roof shingle already offers protection against UV radiation thanks to the granules on the top of the shingles. But adding up APP modified bitumen increases the resistance against UV rays.

Keep in mind that we offer a 20 years total warranty on the Armourglass PLUS, of which we offer 10 years Platinum warranty.
Add this guarantee to the UV protection and you’ll know your roof will be in excellent shape for many years to come!

Flexible roof shingle for each environment

Another advantage of these APP modified bitumen is the flexibility of the shingle. Each roof shingle is flexible at high temperatures, but now Armourglass PLUS is also flexible at low temperatures. This makes Armourglass PLUS an ideal shingle in every environment (from the African dessert to the Russian Siberian winter, from the low points in Death Valley to the roof of the world, the Himalaya).

It especially makes the installation of this roof shingle much easier for the roofer

Armourglass PLUS tested and approved by experienced roofers


Other advantages are the strong fiberglass inlay and remarkable tensile strength.

All these advantages also go for the shingles Victorian PLUS (rounded shape) and Diamant PLUS (triangular shaped), which are different shapes but offer the same high quality as this Armourglass PLUS. 

Your advantage with Armourglass PLUS roof shingle:

  • APP modified bitumen (TÜM approved)
  • Superior quality high grade bitumen fibreglass shingle
  • Exceeds the most stringent worldwide standards
  • Additional UV protection thanks to APP Bitumen
  • Higher flexibility with low(er) temperatures
