The Windsor® Ecoasis™ is a designer shingle line with the energy conservation benefits of the solar reflective Ecoasis™ shingle line. Windsor® Ecoasis™ is made with Flexor™ polymer modified asphalt technology to promote superior granule adhesion and extreme weather protection, including Class 4 impact resistance. This product line also features optional Scotchgard™ Protector from 3M for added protection against black streaks caused by algae. Meets requirements for: LEED, CRRC listing, and CEC Title 24, Part 6.

 

CRRC Rated ProductSOLAR REFLECTANCE TECHNICAL DATA
Windsor® Ecoasis™ is listed with the Cool Roof Rating Council.
Windsor® Ecoasis™ has tested to these radiative property values:

Windsor Ecoasis Solar Reflective Index

 

Cool Roof Rating Council ratings are determined for a fixed set of conditions, and may not be appropriate for determining seasonal energy performance. The actual effect of solar reflectance and thermal emittance on building performance may vary.
Manufacturer of product stipulates that these ratings were determined in accordance with the applicable Cool Roof Rating Council procedures.


Reflect Damaging Solar Rays

Reflecting solar rays may reduce the heat entering your home and extend the life of your roof.

CRRC Rated ProductWhen solar energy hits a roof surface and is absorbed, it raises the temperature of the shingles. This can lead to additional heat entering a home through the roof and premature aging of the asphalt shingles. Ecoasis™ solar reflective shingles feature 3M™ Cool Roofing Granules designed with highly reflective specialty pigments that help reflect infrared light away from the home. Solar reflective shingles may reduce the amount of heat entering your home and can potentially extend the life of your roof in hot climates.

These shingles meet the required reflectance to be designated with industry leading energy conservation standards, including Cool Roof Rating Council listing and California Energy Code, Title 24, Part 6 compliance. Colors with an SRI at 29 or above also meet LEED requirements.

Flexor™ Polymer Modified Asphalt

Asphalt technology increases flexibility, granule adhesion, and impact resistance.

Raw asphalt must be altered for use in roofing materials. Traditional methods to alter asphalt diminish its natural, rubber-like characteristics. For over 30 years, Malarkey has been engineering and manufacturing our specially formulated blend of polymers and mixing them with raw asphalt at each of our facilities to produce our resilient Flexor™ polymer modified asphalt. This process retains more of the rubber-like characteristics of raw asphalt while adding the enhanced characteristics of the polymers, resulting in improved flexibility, granule adhesion, cold weather installation, and impact resistance.

Protect from Extreme Weather

Class 4 impact resistance offers your roof the highest rated protection available.

Impacts to a roof from extreme weather can reduce the life of a shingle and lead to water damage. Class 4 shingles undergo UL 2218 testing to withstand impacts from a simulated 2" hail stone hitting a roof at speeds seen in severe storms without sustaining damage. Flexor™ polymer modified asphalt technology provides superior Class 4 roofing shingle protection, which is the highest rating possible.

Scotchgard™ Protector: Help Prevent Black Streaks

Helps maintain the aesthetic appearance of your roof. Includes a 20-year warranty.

Algae growth on a roof can cause black streaks, which can alter the color of your roof and make it appear aged. Shingles featuring Scotchgard™ Protector utilize 3M™ copper-containing granules and have been third-party tested for optimal coverage. Shingles featuring Scotchgard™ Protector help maintain the aesthetic appearance of your roof by resisting black streaks caused by algae, which may reduce the need to clean your roof. Shingles with Scotchgard™ Protector include a 20-year warranty.

Retain Color Granules

Superior granule adhesion provides your roof lasting beauty and protection from damaging solar rays.

Throughout the day, roofs cycle through periods of hot and cold, causing materials to naturally expand and contract. Flexor™ polymer modified asphalt provides superior flexibility and granule adhesion to better hold granules onto the shingle. When granules stay on the roof, it provides lasting beauty and protection from damaging solar rays.

Seal to Roof

Specially formulated asphalt sealant holds the shingle in place during high winds.

Driving winds can threaten to lift shingles from your roof if they are not properly secured. Malarkey uses three lines of specially formulated SEBS polymer modified asphalt sealant to help hold the shingle in place during high winds. Polymer modified asphalt sealant from Malarkey is engineered with adhesive properties to join the shingles together and cohesive properties to prevent them from separating from the roof. SEBS is also flexible down to 0˚F (-18˚C), ensuring the seal remains intact through freeze and thaw cycles.

Superior Shingle Strength

Shingles with Flexor™ polymer modified asphalt are more resistant to tearing and nail pull-out, reducing the risk of shingle blow-off.

Shingles with Flexor™ polymer modified asphalt are more resistant to tearing and nail pull-out compared to traditional oxidized asphalts, reducing the risk of shingles blowing off in high winds.

Flexible in All Weather

Asphalt technology provides flexibility for application in a wider range of climates and roof styles.

Unique roof structures and cold weather can pose obstacles during installation. Flexor™ polymer modified asphalt technology provides shingles with added flexibility to conform to unique structures. Flexor™ also ensures shingles remain flexible down to 0˚F (-18˚C), which is 40 degrees lower than the typical installation of standard asphalt shingles. This allows for application in a wider range of climates and on a wider range of architectural roof styles.
