Union Corrugating has launched a new aluminum roofing line that is geared toward high-end applications, including the coastal environment where corrosion resistance is critical. The new product was created in response to customer demand. The product line, which uses corrosion-resistant, prime-quality 0.032-inch aluminum, is available in six profiles and 29 Kynar500- or Hylar 5000-based finish colors. Weather tightness and coastal saltwater warranties are available.
Stone-coated metal roofing systems from Gerard, a Headwaters Roofing brand, are available in a broad array of colors—three of which are ENERGY STAR approved—and profiles, including shingle, shake and tile. Constructed of 26-gauge Galvalume steel panels, Gerard roofing systems include a Class A fire rating, a 2.5-inch hailstone warranty and a 120-mph wind warranty. Although Gerard stone-coated metal roofing systems can be installed direct to deck, the optimum energy-saving method is to install on top of a batten or counter-batten grid.
Duradek, home of the original Walkable Roofing Membrane, introduces the Park Rail Top Rail profile, a top rail for plenty of support.
The Park Rail Top Rail offers durability and a continuous top rail look while using up to a 3-inch square post.
Park Rail Top Rail is suitable for picket and glass systems allowing your project to combine the features and advantages of both systems, yet still providing a consistent look throughout.
The new Park Rail Top Rail profile has a much wider look than the average aluminum top rail profile. It is similar in appearance to what has been recognized as a 2 by 4 (wood) size, but this top rail is not vulnerable to the elements the same way as wood.
It is constructed with durable powder-coated aluminum and is made to last without the need for maintenance.
The Park Rail Top Rail profile is 3.5 inches wide by 2 inches high and is available in nine standard colors, up to 180 custom colors or one of 22 authentic-looking wood grain finishes.
Turning the clamp 90 degrees so that the bolt hole side is facing up, slip the clamp on the seam and tighten the setscrews. Go to the S-5! website for information about properly attaching S-5! clamps. After the clamp is installed, affix ancillary items using either of the two threaded bolt holes and bolt provided. The S-5-H90 is perfect for use with S-5! ColorGard and X-Gard snow retention systems and other heavy-duty applications.
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’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.
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).
