The Garland Co. Inc. announced important upgrades to its already high-performing R‑Mer Edge fascia and coping systems for lowslope roofing. The improved R‑Mer Edge systems have been tested by an independent lab and are certified to conform to ANSI/SPRI ES-1, which formalizes the International Building Code specifications for resistance to wind-related failures.
Some of the performance improvements in the new edging systems enabling ES-1 compliance are:
- A streamlined cant dam profile for R‑Mer Edge fascia
- Improved geometry on the inside leg of R‑Mer Edge coping
- Elimination of exposed fasteners that can back out and create leaks
Contractors can web-access a technical application video for comprehensive installation guidelines. As an added bonus, the new edging is even more aesthetically appealing, and can be post-painted to match or complement any color scheme.
