Over 35 SARA members attended an educational presentation and toured ATAS’ manufacturing facility in Mesa, earning learning units for both activities.

Cutting edge cool roof technologies, including UV reflective pigments and above sheathing ventilation, were discussed, as well as how metal roofing can provide a solar ready platform for photovoltaic systems.

Bus stated, “We were pleased to welcome the SARA members to our Mesa, Arizona facility, while they were in the area for their annual conference. The plant tour allowed our guests to view the equipment and processes used to fabricate metal components for the building envelope. All attendees were invited to visit our Allentown, Pennsylvania headquarters, if they are ever in the area.”
