Symmetrical Metal Panels Create Watertight Seam

Morin, a Kingspan Group company, has introduced the SymmeTry Roof Series, a mechanically seamed structural roof system that is symmetrical and hydrostatic by design. A symmetrical metal roof system does not “lap” over an adjacent panel like standard asymmetrical panels. Symmetrical panels install side by side and have a mechanically seamed “cap” that has two beads of continuous butyl sealant, creating a watertight seam. MORIN’s SymmeTry Roof Series vertical panel legs range from 1 1/2 to 3 inches in height. Because they are bidirectional, the panels can be installed going left to right, right to left, and start from any point of the roof. Symmetrical panels are specified and installed to allow for unlimited thermal expansion and contraction, providing the advantage of installing panels up to 300 feet in length.

Morin Partners with D.I. Roof Seamers

Morin, a Kingspan Group company, announces a partnership with D.I. Roof Seamers to provide customers with seamers for MORIN roofing products.

“The partnership with D.I. Roof Seamers will contribute to two key factors in the growth of MORIN,” said Scott Evans, operations director at MORIN. “First, it will allow MORIN to focus on its core business, which is Single Element Panels. Second, it provides a better avenue for our customers. D.I. offers training classes, online ordering, an impressive seamer maintenance program as well as new and innovative seamers to better support our customers’ needs. In short, the partnership benefits our customers through continued quality and improved customer service.”

MORIN installers needing seamers for MorZip, SRR and SLR (2-inch 90 degrees and 180 degrees) metal roofs can find them at a website created by D.I. Roof Seamers.

“We provide seamers for 35 roof panel manufacturers in the United States and Canada and we do it well,” said Kevin Thomas, director of sales at D.I. Seamers. “When we met with the management team of MORIN, we saw the same kind of commitment to excellence for providing quality products and customer service. The partnership was a natural fit.”

D.I. Roof Seamers calls the site a one-stop experience to secure the rental of seaming tools, review manuals on equipment, view videos, peruse the FAQs section and learn more about D.I. Roof Seamers. Access the D.I. Roof Seamers/Morin Rental Request Form.

Matt Martino Joins Morin as Vice President of Sales and Marketing

Matt Martino is joining Morin, a Kingspan Group company, in the role of vice president of Sales and Marketing effective June 1. Martino will oversee and manage six Morin regional sales managers and five independent representative groups across the U.S.

“Matt’s most recent experience with Kingspan Benchmark is both strategic and advantageous, bringing with him his keen technical knowledge of our industry and in particular our metal panel systems; the key players and challenges facing the architectural and design communities,” says Ilhan Eser, CEO of Morin.

“As a leader in architectural single component products, we need to make it a priority to support the architectural community,” Martino adds. “That means being a partner with our customers as opposed to simply a supplier. It also means that, with the advent of systems like Karrier Panel, we need to be a design-stage resource for questions regarding not just aesthetics but also things like proper air, water, thermal and vapor barrier design. If we want to be more than just a cladding element, it will be our job to educate and assist the market as such.”
