Retrofit Roof Drains Feature Integrated Vortex Breaker

OMG Hercules-Plus RetroDrainsOMG Roofing Products introduces a new line of retrofit roof drains called Hercules-Plus. The drains feature integrated vortex breaker technology. Vortex breaker technology helps improve drain performance by improving water removal off the roof.

According to the manufacturer, independent performance testing shows that Hercules-Plus RetroDrains provide up to 2.5 times greater flow capacity than original Hercules Drains without vortex breaker technology. Faster water flow off the roof also means that the drains get excessive weight off the roof faster. In addition, integrated vortex breaker technology greatly reduces the chugging effect that occurs when a vortex collapses, which can overload the plumbing system.

“Ponding water weighs approximately five pounds per inch per square foot. That means one-inch of water covering 20-square feet on the roof weighs 2,000 pounds,” said Dan Genovese, product manager with OMG Roofing. “That’s an additional ton of live load added to the building’s roof, and not entirely uncommon given the number of extreme weather events we’ve seen in the past few years. The new Hercules-Plus RetroDrains can get that water – and excessive weight – off the roof faster.”

Hercules-Plus RetroDrains are available in four sizes: 3 inches, 4 inches, 5 inches and 6 inches, and with an optional TPO or PVC coated flange for direct membrane attachment. Strainer domes are made of heavy-duty cast aluminum which will not rust for long life on the roof. In addition, the safety yellow powder coat makes the Hercules-Plus strainer domes highly visible to help minimize rooftop trip hazards.

OMG Roofing Products Introduces a Rapid Ship Program for Edge Fascia Systems

OMG EdgeSystems has introduced a rapid ship program called ExpressEdge under which two sizes and colors of FM-approved TerminEdge Fascia will ship within 24 hours of receiving an order, or the next business day.

TerminEdge is an easy-to-install edge fascia system that is compatible with most commercial roofing assemblies. The fascia system includes a 20-gauge formed galvanized steel rail, a 24-gauge Kynar-coated snap-on fascia cover, as well as matching splice plates. The rails are self-locating and pre-punched 12 inches on center for installation efficiency and shipped complete with OMG Universal Fasteners.

Under the ExpressEdge program, contractors have a choice of two Kynar finishes, Bone White or Statuary Bronze, as well as two fascia sizes, 5.25 inches to cover two nailers, or 6.75 inches to cover three nailers.

“The program is intended to provide roofing contractors with something they’ve never had, Factory Mutual fascia products that are shipped immediately and delivered quickly to the job site,” says Web Shaffer, vice president of marketing for OMG Roofing Products. “We are very excited about this program and believe that it will be a great success for the roofing community.”

Contractors interested in obtaining a written estimate for TerminEdge should visit the ExpressEdge page on the OMG website and follow the link on the “Ordering Information” tab. They will be asked to provide four pieces of information: the color, the size, the total linear footage needed and the number of inside and outside corners. Based on this information, OMG will provide an estimate for the project.
