Atlas Roofing Corporation recently introduced SureSlopeTM Prefabricated Tapered Products.


Built from the foundation of its industry-leading portfolio of GeminiTM Pre-Cut Tapered Polyiso Roof Insulation, Atlas has rebranded and enhanced the product line as SureSlope, providing contractors, architects and engineers with a more concise picture of its function and benefits. Also, the product line has now expanded to include the new SureSlopeTM DST 8x8 Drain Set, developed to help contractors minimize installation errors, reduce jobsite waste, and increase installation speed.

Why is it needed?

The Atlas SureSlope family of pre-fabricated polyiso roof insulation components are ideal for new and re-roof applications, offering a unique solution to reduce jobsite waste and decrease installation time. Each product is produced with a closed-cell polyisocyanurate (polyiso) foam core integrally bonded to non-asphaltic, fiber-reinforced organic felt or inorganic coated-glass facers, which provides dimensional stability and thermal performance.

What are the new product components?

The new Atlas SureSlope Tapered and Drainage product components now include:

  • SureSlopeTM Drain Set (DST) 4x4 – The 4 ʹ x4ʹ drain set is the industry’s original one-piece, pre-cut drain sump. It requires no field assembly by the contractor.
  • SureSlopeTM Drain Set (DST) 8x8 – The newest addition to the product family, the 8ʹx8ʹ drain set comprises of four pre-packaged 4ʹx4ʹ miters, to easily create a large format drain sump. The 8ʹx8ʹ sump provides a larger area of drainage around the individual drain to help eliminate ponding water, and provides a consistent 1⁄2”/ft drainage, meeting or exceeding current building codes.
  • SureSlopeTM Pre-Cut Miter (MTR) – A one-piece 4ʹ×4ʹ pre-fabricated tapered insulation mitered corner designed to solve the problem of field fabricating hips and valleys, reducing jobsite waste by 50% and installation time. It is available in a variety of slopes and thicknesses.
  • SureSlopeTM Tapered Edge Strip (TES) – Designed to achieve timely water evacuation and extend the roof membrane’s life, the Tapered Edge Strip remains the industry’s trusted, first Zero Edge tapered polyiso solution. Offered in two sizes: 0ʹʹ - 1.5ʹʹ over 12ʹʹ and 0ʹʹ - 2ʹʹ over 24ʹʹ. Both products come in 8ʹ lengths.
  • SureSlopeTM Pre-Cut Cricket (CKT) – Atlas designed the Pre-Cut Crickets to provide a consistent 3:1 length to width ratio while significantly reducing jobsite waste and installation time. The SureSlope CKT utilizes both pre-cut panels and standard tapered panels in the construction of quarter, half, or full diamond crickets.

Why is it important?

“We know architects, contractors, and roofers are required to meet stringent construction timelines and performance requirements, all while staying within budget. SureSlope effectively addresses those needs,” said Tim Milroy, director of sales for Atlas Roofing Corporation. “Atlas is constantly advancing our solutions to ensure contractors can work smarter, not harder. We want customers to immediately understand the benefits our solutions provide, and in refreshing our pre-cut tapered polyiso roof insulation name to SureSlope and expanding the product line with SureSlope 8x8 DST, we can provide a distinct framework.”

Atlas has also made bundles more easily identifiable, eliminating any confusion on the job site. In addition, Atlas offers design assistance, quotes, and shop drawings through its dedicated Tapered Services Department.
