Metl-Span Panels Solve Roofing Problem At Community College Pool

Although the Daytona Beach Community College indoor pool facility was only five years old, the roof was deteriorating badly. Chlorine vapors were affecting the glass fiber batt insulation of the existing metal roof.

A re-roof installation of Metl-Span’s CFR-42 polyurethane foam insulated, composite design panels solved the problem.

The designer and project administrator for Qore Property Sciences, Altamonte Springs, FL was Gary Yaeger, CSI. “The relatively new roof just wasn’t working. We had to find a solution that would avoid exposed insulation,” said Yaeger. “I began looking for a composite panel that would handle the chlorine environment.”

Yaeger’s research led him to Metl-Span. Approximately 12,500 square feet of CFR-42 material in Polar White was utilized. The exterior face was G-90 galvanized steel in 24 gauge; the interior face was 26 gauge.

Installation was completed ahead of schedule in only 40 days without having to drain the pool. The pool section of the heated and air-conditioned building was closed during construction and the pool was covered.

The roofing contractor on the job was Sunshine Roofing Company, Orlando.

“The college loves the panel material,” says Yaeger. “It was the solution to their problem. The composite design, interior finish and insulating value were really key to the success of this application.”

Metl-Span pioneered the development of insulated metal panels and continues to make significant contributions to design innovations and technology that have become industry standards.
