SpecTips: A Permanent Hazard Warning for Your Roof
Carlisle’s Yellow Pressure-Sensitive (PS) Warning Strip is the permanent solution for marking and mitigating rooftop risks such as roof perimeters and edges, tripping hazards such as deep drain sumps, skylights, as well as hot and/or dangerous equipment. Yellow PS Warning Strip comes in 6”-wide by 100’-long rolls and creates a permanent yellow line that provides a visual warning of an impending hazard. Ideal for roofs requiring frequent maintenance, Yellow PS Warning Strip is available for TPO, PVC, and EPDM membranes and can easily be installed without specialized welding equipment or electricity. Unlike paint products, Yellow PS Warning Strip will not need to be reapplied every few years.
To specify Yellow Pressure-Sensitive Warning Strip, include it as an Accessory Roofing Material for your single-ply roof assembly in Part II (Products) of the appropriate single-ply roof section of your project specification.
