Meets Highest Impact Resistance Rating...

The UL 2218 impact test was developed in conjunction with insurance industry leaders. It's based on dropping a 2" steel ball from 20' onto the top of the shingle to see whether the shingle cracks. GAF IR Shingles pass Class 4—the highest rating possible. Check with your insurance agent about potential savings on your homeowners insurance. (See Details)
