Extreme Weather Calls for Extreme Weather Protection

Don’t your home and family deserve the protection and peace of mind that IKO Cambridge IR shingles have to offer? They’re engineered to provide exceptional protection against wind uplift and water penetration. Now these high-quality, laminated architectural shingles are fortified with IKO ArmourZone to resist wind and inclement weather even better than before.

IKO Cambridge IR features a Limited Wind Warranty for winds of up to 130 mph (210 km/h) with the use of only four nails. See Limited Warranty for details.

These shingles are engineered to provide superior protection against wind uplift and water penetration. Their resilient, heavyweight fiberglass mat is reinforced with IKO polymer-modified asphalt for exceptional flexibility and tear-resistance. Because this makes them more pliable, IKO Cambridge IR shingles act like a shock absorber, earning them a Class 4 Impact Resistance rating against hail.

IKO is pleased to present this for the sole purpose of enabling homeowners to obtain a discount on their home insurance premiums, if available in their area. This rating is not to be construed as any type of express or implied warranty or guarantee of the impact performance of this shingle by the manufacturer, supplier or installer.

We’ve elevated these asphalt shingles to perform exceptionally by adding the ArmourZone.

What’s that? It’s a 1-1/4” wide nailing surface for correct nail placement reinforced by a tear-resistant band that provides even more fastening strength over a wider surface area of the shingle. Nails applied in this area are optimally positioned to help resist nail pull-through and shingle blow-off, even in high winds.

IKO Cambridge IR shingles with ArmourZone are manufactured in IKO’s special “Advantage” size. Bigger than most competitors’ comparable product, they not only go down faster, they offer greater exposure for tremendous visual appeal.

1. Built-In Algae Resistance

We embed special algae-resistant granules into IKO Cambridge IR shingles to help inhibit the growth of blue-green algae that can cause unattractive black stains, streaks and discoloration.

2. The Only Time It’s Good to Be Tacky

You want your new shingles to stay put. If the wind lifts them up, water can sneak in underneath and may cause a leaky roof. Our shingles have IKO Fastlock™ sealant along their bottom edges. When activated by the sun’s heat, it gets extra-tacky and creates a strong bond to help ensure maximum protection against wind uplift, blow-off and water penetration.

3. Blow-off Protection

Printed nail line guides installers to position and fasten the shingles correctly, to help keep them on the roof and prevent them from blowing off in high wind.

4. The Core Strength of IKO Cambridge IR Shingles Is Its Fiberglass Mat

IKO Cambridge IR shingles feature a resilient fiberglass mat reinforced and coated top and bottom with IKO modified asphalt. It’s formulated to be extremely pliable, which contributes to its impact-resistant properties. These shingles are heavy-duty for exceptional durability and structural integrity.
