Barrett has integrated Ram Tough systems into the recycling process. Ram Tough 250 is manufactured, in part, with recycled tire, crumb rubber and Poly Felt is manufactured with recycled PET content.
Ram Tough membranes are recyclable into high-quality asphaltic concrete for highway paving. (Recycle Inc. 201-662-3000).
Ram Tough PMR systems utilize Styrofoam® which is readily recyclable (Natural Polystyrene Recycling Co. 708-945-1991)
A fact not well known is that asphalt, by tonnage, is the most widely recycled material in America.
The Barrett Company is an Environmental Protection Agency – Department of Energy (EPA- DOE) "ENERGY STAR PARTNER" with Ultra White labeled products which meet the program’s criteria for energy conservation and performance.
Barrett offers "odor mask" formulations of all hot bituminous products to minimize olfactory objection to asphaltic smells.
Most importantly the extended service life of Ram Tough systems mean less reroofing, less volume of roof debris sent to landfill dumps and the lowest life-cycle cost, conserving a lot of energy and dollars.
