The rise in natural disaster events has led to insurance claims in the billions of dollars, and most importantly, loss of life. This trend has prompted standards such as ES1 and GT-1 to be added to international building code, but what else can be done to mitigate risk? Through this course, learn about how specifying the roof edge is the single most cost-effective enhancement for wind uplift on a commercial roof and how you can help mitigate risk and protect lives through design.
The roof edge serves as the building’s first line of defense against damaging winds and severe weather. That’s why specifying a roof edge to be compliant with ANSI/SPRI/FM 4435/ES-1 and other important testing standards to meet building code is critical. Learn more about how you can significantly reduce risk and liability while protecting roof systems against failure.
ANSI/SPRI GT-1 was added into the 2021 International Building Code, offering a holistic approach to design and testing standards for gutter systems. As gutters are an integral part of the roof edge system, ANSI/SPRI GT-1 provides a consensus for an acceptable level of performance with real world practicality. This course will review the standard and test methods for gutter systems that secure membrane on commercial low slope roof systems for load resistance and why that is important for specifiers.
Looking for a better understanding of the principles of properly ventilating a roof system? This training will not only provide an overview of roof ventilation, but additional understanding of the unique needs of a commercial building compared to residential buildings.
Metal-Era is the largest and most accomplished edge metal systems manufacturer in North America, with the broadest portfolio of tested roofing and building envelope solutions on the market. A series of dynamic robots help standardize products and improve efficiencies – equating to consistently higher performing products that ship fast.
The 1-hour Metal-Era tour is expansive and comprised of stops as well as live product installation demos to fully understand the process from design through installation to meet building code compliance. The tour includes the following stops and is guided by a corporate executive with designated talking points at each station to ensure standardized learning.
