Coated Metals Group has launched its textured steel coil, TEXTUR3D. The coil’s textured finish has been formulated and designed to provide dimensional depth in the surface, thereby diffusing and redirecting light to provide an appealing look while reducing the appearance of oil canning. TEXTUR3D has been developed to provide a more durable surface and enhanced resistance to scratching and cuffing common with low-gloss or matte finishes while maintaining the same film integrity, weathering performance and resistance to chalking and fading that ULTRA-CLAD is known for. CMG stocks TEXTUR3D in 26-gauge coil and sheets in 13 colors. It is available for order in all CMG standard colors.
TEXTUR3D comes with a 35-year finish warranty.

The S-5-H90 Mini is a bit shorter than the S-5-H90 and has one setscrew and one threaded bolt hole rather than two. The mini is the choice for attaching all kinds of rooftop accessories: signs, walkways, satellite dishes, antennas, rooftop lighting, lightning protection systems, solar arrays, exhaust stack bracing, conduit, condensate lines, mechanical equipment—just about anything!*

The S-5-H90 and S-5-H90 Mini clamps are each furnished with the hardware shown to the right. Each box also includes a bit tip for tightening setscrews using an electric screw gun. The structural aluminum attachment clamp is compatible with all common metal roofing materials excluding copper. All necessary stainless steel hardware is included. Please visit www.S-5.com for more information including CAD details, metallurgical compatibilities and specifications.

The S-5-H90 clamp has been tested for load-to-failure results on a variety of horizontal standing seam roof profiles from leading panel manufacturers. The independent lab test reports can be found on the company’s website.

AEP Span is now offering its metallic-coated and pre-painted architectural metal panels with graffiti-resistant coating systems.

AEP Span’s factory applied graffiti-resistant coating systems consist of a three-coat system including a primer, a color coat, and a graffiti-resistant clear coat in a low to medium gloss and a high gloss. These coating systems are available in all AEP Span paint systems.

The graffiti-resistant coating systems work as a barrier of protection over a steel surface and is formulated to work with PPG’s DuraPrep Prep 400 graffiti remover. The coating systems prevent most graffiti material from gripping or shadowing the surface, which allows the field applied DuraPrep Prep 400 graffiti remover to wipe away graffiti. If an AEP Span architectural metal panel is spray-painted, graffiti can be eliminated by applying the graffiti remover directly to the stain, allowing it to sit for 10 to 60 seconds, then wiping it with a clean cloth or scrubbing it with a nylon brush. Most stains can be removed in 10 minutes or less.

Other graffiti that can be removed include paint overspray, pen and marker ink, lipstick, scuff marks, tape residue, bugs, tar, and many other substances that mar the appearance of steel building panels.

Add Components to Your ColorGard Snow Retention System

S-5!'s SnapClip II

S-5!’s SnapClip II

SnapClip II or SnapClip III are optional components that can be added to your S-5! ColorGard snow retention system to further retard the migration of snow. It has a special integrated rubber “foot” to prevent abrasion of the panel’s finish. SnapClip snaps onto the back of the crossmember and extends down to the flat of the roofing panel.

Snap the SnapClip onto your ColorGard crossmember after installation. One or two clips are used between seams (please visit www.S-5.com for details). Mount the SnapClip to the back of the crossmember using the lock that results with the rubber “foot” resting properly on the panel surface. When applying downward pressure on the part, the “toe” should engage the surface of the panel just before the “heel.” Screw SnapClip into place utilizing the provided stainless steel self-tapping screw.

SnapClip II has two locks and is especially made for seam heights of 1 inch (25 mm) and 1 3/4 inch (44.5 mm) snap. It will also fit 2-inch (51-mm) vertical seams but not 2 inch (51 mm) horizontal.

SnapClip III has three different locks and will work on seam heights of 1 3/4 inch (44.5 mm) up to 3 inches (76 mm).
