The Alumi-Flash System from Portals Plus

We are happy to announce that the Alumi-Flash system has been updated to include the entire range of pipe flashing currently available from Portals Plus. We now have the Standard, Extra Wide and Extra Tall bases available for sale and have added them to our website. The products have been broken out individually to allow customers to view specifications, line drawings and product specific information as well as updated photos and pricing. This will make purchasing the correct base and cap type much easier.

Why the Alumi-Flash System?

The National Roofing Contractors Association states: “Pitch pockets or pans by their design, are not intended to be continuously watertight. Their use should not be encouraged since better methods are available to accomplish the same end. Pitch pans or pockets require frequent inspection and maintenance, and usually a great deal of damage can occur before the leak around a pitch pan or pocket is evident.

The Portals Plus Alumi-Flash is compatible with all types of roof systems and makes pitch pans obsolete. Due to the flexibility of the EPDM rubber caps, roof leaks are eliminated because penetrations are allowed to expand, contract, and vibrate independently of the water proofing.

There are five (5) caps available which can accommodate a variety of pipes, tubes, and angle irons from .375″ through 12″. The caps are molded EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) rubber which is compounded to resist degradation due to oxidation or exposure to ozone and ultraviolet rays, while having a serviceable temperature range of -60F to +270F.  The caps are mechanically sealed to the Alumi-Flash base with a double “Weather-Titen Pressure Seal”, which consists of two (2) beads formed into the collar that mate with the double grooves on the inside of the caps. The base must be roofed in, using good roofing practices. Together, the cap and base provide a permanent, watertight and maintenance free means for penetrating roofs that is simple and easy to install.
