FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Metl-Span has introduced CFR Retro-Seam™, an insulated metal standing seam roof panel that features the innovative Roof Hugger® sub-purlin system. The CFR Retro-Seam system eliminates the need and associated cost of removing an existing roof.
The new system improves the integrity of original design loadings and meets IBC requirements. CFR Retro-Seam provides unsurpassed weathertight performance and maximizes thermal efficiency.
The system utilizes a light gauge structural member, notched to span over the original roof’s ribs or corrugation, that is positioned directly over the building’s framing system. The member is attached to the roof purlins through the bottom flange of the structural member and the existing roof sheet. The new Metl-Span panels are then attached to the new member.
Metl-Span pioneered many of the developments of insulated metal panels and continues to make significant contributions to design innovations and technology that shape industry standards. For more information on the complete line of Metl-Span products, call 877-585-9969 or visit www.metlspan.com.
