Metal Sales™ Introduces T-Armor Series™ Standing Seam Roof System
Louisville, KY - Metal Sales Manufacturing Corporation, a supplier of metal roof and wall systems, introduces its T-Armor Series™ Structural Standing Seam Roof System, which can be used for new construction or retrofit.
The T-Armor Series uses Metal Sales’ concealed clip design and sealed seam cap. The sealed seam cap design allows for multi-directional panel installation, simple replacement of a damaged panel and provides weather tightness.
The T-Armor Series also offers an optional continuous concealed clip, specifically designed for roofs that are frequently exposed to high winds and heavy environmental loads. The clip can extend the full length of the panel or may be used only on specific areas of the roof. The continuous clip design creates an increased area of contact for panel-to-clip engagement, allowing the roof system to bear heavier loads and strengthen its wind uplift resistance. This clip design also allows for complete thermal expansion and contraction of roofing panels reducing risk of oil canning, and giving the system a tight weather seal.
“The T-Armor Series is another example of Metal Sales’ commitment to engineering new products that are both environmentally-friendly and economically rewarding,” said Dave Cunningham, Product Development Manager at Metal Sales. “Our goal is to grow our customers’ businesses by inspiring them to achieve all of their design, budget and performance objectives.”
Metal Sales manufactures six T-Armor Series panel profiles in 12”, 16” or 18” widths with a 2 3/8” high tee seam. All panel profiles are available in a range of thicknesses from 20 to 24 gauge steel and 0.032” or 0.040” aluminum. All materials are available with a Kynar 500® (PVDF) paint system in a variety of colors. The panels can also be curved for more dynamic roof designs.
T-Armor is warranted for weather tightness and it comes with a finish warranty. It’s noted that the system’s 45+ year lifespan and limited maintenance requirements contribute to its sustainable product attributes. The system is primarily steel, the #1 recycled material in the world, and contains up to 30% recycled content.
Architects and designers can choose from a variety of cool roof compliant colors for T-Armor that are ENERGY STAR® listed and contribute toward sustainability goals and green building certifications, such as Net-Zero and LEED®.
