The batten-style ribs are 1.875 inches high and come in custom widths of up to 44.5 inches. Materials include aluminum, galvanized or stainless steel, copper, and zinc featuring either mill or fluoropolymer coatings. “With options such as conical tapers, convex, and concave curves and domes available, and panels as long as 45 feet, this versatile roofing panel is ideal for complex roofing projects with the highest aesthetic requirements,” said Jonnie Hasan, P.E., Director of Engineering and Sales Support for IMETCO.

The system meets ASTM E330 and ASTM E331 requirements, and it has been UL-tested and FBC approved, the news release reports. The roofing panels can be applied to plywood or gyp board with rigid insulation over decking. The news release does caution that installation requires appropriate IMETCO roofing underlayment per project-specific conditions.
