Cool roofing metals are sustainable and energy efficient. But equally as important, these new-generation coated metals offer tremendous freedom of choice when it comes to color. At Sheffield Metals International—one of the country’s leading providers of roofing coil and flat stock to jobsite metal roofing manufacturers—the company’s COOLR® metals are available in a wide range of 70% Kynar 500® or Hylar 5000®-based colors, including metallics and low-gloss colors.
The company’s COOLR® roofing metal in 24-gauge thickness and with a Colonial Red finish, was recently used by Cumberland Fabrication of Fayetteville, NC, to produce 4,000 sq. ft. of standing seam roofing for a branch location of the Fort Bragg Federal Credit Union in North Carolina. Cumberland was also the roof system installer.
COOLR® metals meet the performance criteria of the EPA's Energy Star program. Sheffield stocks COOLR® metals in more than two dozen colors and acrylic-coated Galvalume. Coil and sheet stock is available in a variety of gauges, widths and substrates for low- and steep-slope applications. The metal features 25%-minimum recycled content and is 100% recyclable.
