Green Span Profiles’ Roof and Wall Panel System Receives Florida Approval

Green Span Profiles has received Florida Approval for all profiles of its insulated wall panel system as well as its insulated roof panel system.

Green Span Profiles’ insulated wall panel system, with an interior and exterior steel facing bonded to a poured-in-place insulating polyisocyanurate foam core, complies with Florida Building Code 2014 Section 1405.2. The approved profiles are MesaLine, ShadowLine, WaveLine, VeeLine, Impression, Stucco and Infinity in thicknesses ranging from 2-6 inches with the Green-Lock interlocking tongue and groove side joint in widths up to 42 inches. The system demonstrated compliance with ASTM E1592-05 for structural performance and ASTM E84-09 for surface burning characteristics.

The company’s RidgeLine insulated roofing panel recently received Florida Approval for installation over open framing, demonstrating compliance with ASTM E 1592, ATM E84 and FM 4471. RidgeLine is a patented 2-3/8-inch-tall mechanically seamed roofing panel covering 42 inches, with thickness options of 2.5, 3, 4, 5 and 6 inches. The core is a continuously poured-in-place polyisocyanurate insulating foam. Exterior and interior metal panels are available in 26-, 24- and 22-gauge Galvalume steel. Exterior finish is standard gloss PVDF coating. RidgeLine panels can be used on slopes as low as 1/2:12 and are available in standard lengths measuring 12 to 53 feet, with custom lengths available on demand.

Brian N. Jaks, P.E., VP of Sales & Marketing at Green Span Profiles says, “Due to the preponderance of hurricane activity in Florida, the state felt a responsibility to approve all building products utilized within the state. The State of Florida Building Code is one of the strictest in the nation therefore, we believe these certifications are great achievements.”

Green Span Profiles Receives Uplift Resistance Approval for Metal Roofing Panels

Green Span Profiles has received UL 580 Class 90 Approval for wind uplift for its RidgeLine insulated metal roofing panel.

UL 580 is the Standard for Tests for Uplift Resistance of Roof Assemblies. Roof assemblies are tested for their ability to resist both external and internal pressures associated with high velocity winds.

RidgeLine is a patented 2-3/8-inch tall mechanically seamed roofing panel covering 42 inches, with thickness options of 2.5, 3, 4, 5 and 6 inches. The core is a continuously poured-in-place, polyisocyanurate insulating foam. Exterior and interior metal panels are available in 26-, 24- and 22-gauge Galvalume steel. Exterior finish is standard gloss PVDF coating. RidgeLine panels can be used on slopes as low as 1/2:12 and are available in standard lengths measuring 12 to 53 feet, with custom lengths available on demand. Green Span Profile’s UL construction number is 698.

“This is great news for Green Span Profiles, our installers and their customers,” says Brian N. Jaks, P.E., vice president of sales and marketing at Green Span Profiles. “By meeting UL 580 Class 90, RidgeLine meets the standards of the International Building Code for installation in high velocity wind areas. UL certification adds another level of scrutiny to our manufacturing process. Underwriter’s Laboratories requires independent, quarterly QC audits to maintain certification.”
