Edge Metal Profile Reduces Material Costs

The EclipsEdge edge metal profile is not fastened to the horizontal surface of the roof, so there are no fasteners to seal with membrane flashing.

EclipsEdge edge metal profile from Mule-Hide Products Co. makes installing raised roof edges, gravel stops and full coping caps in single-ply roofing systems easier while also reducing material costs.

A two-part design, with a base and a top cover, makes EclipsEdge versatile and helps eliminate entire steps often required in traditional installations. The profile can be used in TPO, EPDM and PVC roofing systems and is not sensitive to membrane thickness.

EclipsEdge is not fastened to the horizontal surface of the roof, so there are no fasteners to seal with membrane flashing. There is no need to install a continuous clip when the face dimension exceeds 4 inches. The ends of the top cover are notched for overlapping, eliminating the need for joint covers.

Using the EclipsEdge provides the same aesthetics from the ground as traditional coping cap installations while using a fraction of the metal. It also eliminates the need to measure and fabricate copings, and then return to the jobsite to complete the job.

Fastener holes are pre-punched for installation. EclipsEdge can be installed using battery-operated equipment.

EclipsEdge complies with ANSI/SPRI ES-1, “Wind Design Standard for Edge Systems Used with Low Slope Roofing Systems.”

EclipsEdge is available in prefinished steel, aluminum, stainless steel and bonderized steel. The standard base is fabricated from 22-gauge GALVALUME Plus steel or .050-gauge aluminum. The cover is available in 24-gauge GALVALUME with mill or Kynar finish, 24-gauge stainless steel or .040-gauge aluminum in mil or Kynar finish. All covers measuring 9- to 13-inches are fabricated with aluminum.

Malarkey Roofing Products Eases Access to Product Resources with New Website Design

Malarkey Roofing Products unveiled a new website design the beginning of November that focuses on ease of use paired with icon based navigation. The new look comes on the heels of multiple product additions from the company this summer, including the new Windsor heavyweight designer shingle as well as an expanded low slope roll roofing product line. These new product additions are now seamlessly integrated into the web design with easy access to product resources.

Among the updates to the Malarkey website are the incorporation of icon images with familiar features from the previous website, including areas tailored to both homeowners and roofing professionals. Quick navigation buttons on the homepage allow users one-click access to the shingle design center and purchase locations, as well as recent news and events. Industry professionals will notice low slope product information can be found as both individual product listings as well as system requirements, to allow for easy access to information to fit individual workflows. The warranty center has also seen an update with a streamlined submission process.

“The new website updates are a springboard for our continued growth of the Malarkey online presence in 2015,” says Katherine McConnell, Marketing Manager at Malarkey Roofing Products. “We are excited to offer these updates and look forward to continuing to build our communications with our customers in the year to come.”
