Introducing UL 21218 Class 4 Impact Resistant Shingles

Now you can get the timeless look of a wood shake roof with enhanced performance that stands up to Mother Nature. New TAMKO Heritage IR impact resistant shingles are designed to resist the impact of a 2-inch steel ball dropped from a height of 20 feet at time of manufacture. This reinforced performance has earned Heritage IR shingles a UL2218 Class 4 rating for impact resistance.*

Wood-Shake Beauty. Reinforced Construction.

Heritage IR shingles have enhanced impact resistance that comes from a fiberglass mat and non-woven polyester fabric reinforcement on the back. Additional strength is provided by a fine pattern of thermally bonded polyester fibers throughout. It all adds up to a beautifully distinctive shingle that performs to UL standards for impact.

Of course, Heritage IR shingles are created with signature TAMKO Heritage quality, including Shadowtone design for the depth and dimension of wood shakes, a random-cut sawtooth pattern that eliminates roofing zippers, a heavy-duty fiberglass mat, weathering grade asphalt coating, strong laminated bond, and a self-sealing strip to further enhance wind resistance.

All Heritage IR shingles are made with unique color blends that create the rugged beauty of natural wood shakes and enhance a homes curb appeal. Available colors include: Weathered Wood, Natural Timber, Thunderstorm Grey, Rustic Black, Olde English Pewter, Rustic Slate, and Rustic Cedar.
