Sample Boards Stacked Residential Division

The Atlas line of residential building materials are designed to give our customers value, design, and long lasting quality. Beginning in the early 80’s with a single asphalt shingle manufacturing facility in Meridian, MS, and with its purchase of four additional roofing plants in the mid 90’s, Atlas has grown to keep up with the demands of the ever-growing asphalt shingle and roll roofing industry. For almost 30 years Atlas has served homeowners, contractors, builders, and distributors by providing quality roofing materials, unmatched support, and a long term commitment to the industry. Atlas Roofing Corporation is not your typical, high profile shingle manufacturer: instead they strive to be different, unique, innovative, and most importantly accessible. Atlas products are designed to meet every market segment, the Atlas Signature Select full system approach is geared toward every contractor, and a full line of top load ready compatible roof accessories makes getting what you need a cinch!

Humble beginnings and consistent leadership have given Atlas a strong foothold in core markets across North America. A dedicated sales force and hard working manufacturing personnel allows Atlas to be the first supplier to respond to the peak demands of new construction and storm damage across the United States. Atlas is first to react to hurricane devastation on the Atlantic & Gulf Coasts, Tornados in the Midwest, and Hail Damage across the South. When the market calls, Atlas responds.

Polyiso Products Stacked Commercial Division

Beginning in the early 80’s, the Atlas commercial polyiso division began to fill the need for a growing foam insulation demand from the single-ply roofing industry. Instead of entering into membrane manufacturing, Atlas has remained the sole provider of polyiso roof insulation without a membrane system. This autonomy has given Atlas the flexibility to work with many industry leading manufacturers of membranes, promoting wide-ranging advancements in rigid board insulation technology and performance. Atlas is proud to have ACFoam® polyiso insulation as part of roofing systems around the world.

A vocal leader in promoting energy efficiency and conservation, the Atlas Commercial Division has long been blazing the trail of environmental stewardship. Atlas now has 7 top of the line polyiso manufacturing facilities that produce millions of board feet each year. Each plant manufactures polyiso insulation with blowing agent technology that is both zero ozone depleting (ODP) and has zero global warming potential (GWP). Atlas Commercial also offers a full line of polyiso tapered, nailable, and wall insulation materials. Atlas is committed to influencing building decisions by offering high R-value solutions that reduce energy consumption and promote beyond the code initiatives.

Web Technologies

Atlas Web Technologies® focuses on the development of state of the art substrate products for the building, construction, lamination, and OEM industries. The solutions we develop for our customers are derived from three primary technologies; recycled paper, coated non-wovens, and hybrids of these base technologies. Atlas Roofing Corporation is the only polyiso producer to manufacture and develop its own facers. Atlas began producing Glass Reinforced Facer (GRF) used for it’s commercial roofing product (ACFoam II®) in 1988. Our development of Coated Glass Facers (CGF) began in 1991 with the introduction of Rboard®, a polyiso wall insulating sheathing product that revolutionized the industry.

Atlas Web Technologies® also manufactures Fire Retardant Slipsheets, FR-10 and FR-50, that help to enhance the overall fire performance of many conventional commercial roof systems. Atlas innovation led to the development of Coated Glass Facers for numerous gypsum products. The growth of coated glass markets led to the construction of our state of the art manufacturing facility in 2003. Atlas Web Technologies® recently developed the coating technology that led to the introduction of the  first high performance polyiso roof insulation product capable of never-before-seen wind uplift ratings for membranes adhered directly to polyiso, ACFoam®-IV.

Atlas EPS

Atlas EPS is a division of Atlas Roofing Corporation that specializes in the development and manufacture of quality HCFC-Free Expanded Polystyrene Insulation Products.
