Resistance to storm and strong winds (up to 220km/h!)

ArmourShield PLUS is a popular roof shingle in stormy areas like coastal areas or mountain ranges, thanks to its exceptional resistance to strong winds. Armourshield PLUS roof tile shingles are extensively tested in a wind tunnel and the results were impressive. All IKO shingles can easily resist winds, but ArmourShield PLUS roof shingles also can resist to strong winds up to 220km/h. Seems like the best roof shingle to install in stormy areas.

Shingles installation on concrete roof

In certain countries (Italy, Spain, Cuba, Romania,..) shingles are also being installed on concrete roof decks. ArmourShield PLUS is an ideal asphalt roof shingle for this application. For a correct roof application, certain guidelines should be followed. It is important that the roof deck is cleaned and dust free. The use of a bitumen primer is recommended. This primer needs to dry before you can proceed with the following step. You cannot install the ArmourShield PLUS roof shingles directly on the concrete deck. An APP based underlay (like Armourgum IKOnic) should first be torched onto the roof. Then you should nail (and not(!) torch) the roof shingles on the “melted” APP membrane. Thanks to the self-adhesive back of the Armourshield PLUS, these roof shingle tiles will perfectly attach to the membrane and you’ll have a roof that will withstand each weather condition!
