From our Partners at Carlisle Construction Materials

Importance of Metal Roof Edges and their design, testing, and performance

·         Metal Edging not only provides a sleek look but is critical to protecting the entire roof system

·         Roof edge failure possibilities: Fasteners are uneven, the metal thickness is too light, and inside corners have no miters.

·         The cost of perimeter edge metal is typically only 1% of the total building cost

·         It carries the most risk for roof failure

·         Solutions: ES-1 test standard developed by Single Ply Roofing Industry (SPRI) and ANSI

·         Consideration of design are building height, location, local wind speed data, building occupancy factor, and special terrain characteristics,

·         Several wind calculators can be found online at sites such as spri.org

·         ANSI/SPRI ES-1 standard will help protect the complete roofing system
