THE FRESH MARKET, CALIFORNIA
Screen Installer: Pacific Sheet Metal Inc., Costa Mesa, Calif., (949) 642-2498
Screen Manufacturer: RoofScreen Manufacturing
Pacific Sheet Metal installed 320 lineal feet of pre-engineered modular rooftop framing around the HVAC equipment on the store’s roof. Because The Fresh Market representatives wanted the panels to match a color on the store that would be painted later, Pacific Sheet Metal installed pretreated 24-gauge Galvalume panels that could be painted with the building.
RoofScreen’s patented roof attachment system is engineered and leak-proof to ensure the integrity of the roof system. It starts with a 6- by 6-inch steel base support, available in a variety of lengths to accommodate any insulation thickness. The support is attached with bolts or lag screws to the roof structure through the interior of the base support. Specially fitted flashing boots are then installed and roofed in. After roofing is complete, a self-adhesive EPDM gasket strip is applied around the top of the flashing, which provides added protection from snow, ice and splashing water. The final step is to install the Base Cap Assembly, which counterflashes 2.4 inches over the flashing and creates a seal by compressing the gasket. This watertight structural mounting point is ideal for mechanical equipment screens, equipment platforms and solar-panel racking systems.
The Fresh Market is a specialty grocery retailer focused on providing high-quality products in a unique and inviting atmosphere. Wanting its Sacramento, Calif., store to have an inviting exterior, as well, company representatives opted to hide its rooftop HVAC equipment, which was in full view of adjacent buildings.
The successful install on the Sacramento store led to two more jobs at The Fresh Market locations in Santa Barbara and Yorba Linda, Calif.
