LCF Universal Closure by Lakeside Construction Fasteners

LCF Universal Closure by Lakeside Construction Fasteners


The newly patented design of LCF Universal Closure by Lakeside Construction Fasteners creates a weathertight seal and contours to a metal-panel profile without the need for carrying die cut closures. The close-cell closure can be used as an inner/outer with adhesive applied the full length and width of the LCF Universal Closure. The patented adhesive bonding agent helps prevent water, dirt, snow and insects from penetrating the building structure after installation. The product, which can be used in multiple applications throughout the ridge cap, eave, hip or valley, is Dade County 110-mph tested and approved.

Scan for Moisture in a Variety of Membranes and Insulation Thicknesses

Tramex Dec Scanner

Tramex Dec Scanner

The Tramex Dec Scanner is a mobile non-destructive impedance moisture scanner designed for the instant surveying of moisture conditions in roofing and waterproofing systems. Three ranges of sensitivity enable the inspection of a variety of roof membranes and insulation thicknesses. By moving the Dec Scanner across a roof surface in a regular pattern, a continuous reading is obtained and areas that contain moisture can be readily identified. It includes an ergonomic, easy-to-reach and easy-to-operate control panel.

Fire Resistance Is Built into Polyiso’s Polymer

ENRGY 3.E from Johns Manville

ENRGY 3.E from Johns Manville

ENRGY 3.E from Johns Manville is the next generation of polyisocyanurate roof-board insulation whereby the fire resistance has been engineered into the polymer backbone without the need for added halogenated flame retardants. Unlike conventional halogenated flame retardants that are free un-bonded plasticizers mixed with the foam, the reactive polymer modifier used to produce ENRGY 3.E is a non-halogenated organo-phosphorus monomer that chemically reacts and bonds directly to the polymer network. This results in the polyiso performance attributes of the existing ENRGY 3 while being inherently fire-resistant and meeting all current fire codes.

Combine Advantages of Single Ply with Aesthetics of Standing-seam Metal

Carlisle SynTec Systems' Sure-Flex PVC Contour Rib Profile

Carlisle SynTec Systems’ Sure-Flex PVC Contour Rib Profile

Carlisle SynTec Systems is pleased to introduce its new Sure-Flex PVC Contour Rib Profile. This innovative product combines the advantages of a single-ply system with the aesthetic appeal of a standing seam metal roof. To achieve this look, Carlisle’s PVC Contour Rib Profile is hot-air welded in a parallel pattern to the exposed surface of FleeceBACK KEE HP FRS or FleeceBACK PVC membrane.

Designed to cast a distinctive shadow that can be seen from the ground or surrounding areas, Carlisle’s PVC Contour Rib Profile provides enhanced aesthetics when compared to other PVC rib profiles. This product is extruded from the same weather-resistant PVC compound as Carlisle’s Sure-Flex PVC roofing membrane, ensuring comparable weathering characteristics and an excellent color match. Carlisle’s durable PVC Contour Rib Profile is dimensionally stabilized and strengthened by a 1/8-inch fiberglass reinforcing cord that runs the length of each section. During installation, the 10’ PVC Contour Rib Profile sections are joined together by a non-corroding, fiberglass pin, ensuring compatibility and continuity throughout the application.

Carlisle’s PVC Contour Rib Profile is available in white, gray, and tan colors and measures 10-feet long, 1¼-inch tall, and 2 1/8-inch wide (including the welding flanges). The vertical profile is a substantial 3/8-inch thick, and each section of PVC Contour Rib Profile has a 1/8-inch alignment hole. This product is packaged 20 pieces per carton, and each carton includes 25 connecting pins.
