Renovated meat processing factory in Serbia goes for RubberGard EPDM

Extensive renovation works were carried out at the Mitros meat processing factory in Sremska Mitrovica, Serbia, following its acquisition by Gierlinger Holding, an Austrian company that specializes in processed meat products such as bacon, ham, sausages and spreads.

9,000 m²


Elevate RubberGard EPDM 1.1 mm


Fully adhered

The original 9,000 m² roof build-up, consisting of concrete elements covered with a bitumen membrane, was deteriorated and overstressed and needed to be renovated.

One of the main challenges of this project was that it was not possible to drill the concrete substrate. Therefore, a durable, non-penetrating roofing system was needed. In addition, the vaulted shape of the roof required a flexible membrane that could be installed quickly and easily.

After considering several different proposals, the building owner decided to go for an Elevate RubberGard EPDM fully adhered system, as proposed by a local Elevate partner. This experienced roofing contractor completed the renovation of the roofing system in 60 days.


EPDM is the most future-proof roofing solution when it comes to sustainabilityperformance and design freedom. Learn more about the role it played within this project and many others by discovering its benefits.

How did EPDM elevate this project?



EPDM can be installed directly on most existing roofing systems, with or without insulation. Since it’s safe and flame-free, many renovations can happen without closing the building underneath.



EPDM roofing membranes last for at least 50 years and their structure and elasticity remain unchanged. They can be easily repaired, which allows them to last even longer. No doubt: EPDM is the most durable roofing material available.
