When it comes to protecting commercial roofing systems in extreme weather, the edge metal system is the roof’s first line of defense. As such, the line of TerminEdge™ Fascia and PermaSnap® Coping systems from OMG® are ideal for use on hospitals, schools, or other buildings that are often designated as shelters during severe weather events. TerminEdge is one of the industry’s strongest fascia systems with Factory Mutual (FM) system ratings up to 1-315. The system is ANSI/SPRI/FM-4435/ES-1 tested, FM approved, compatible with most commercial roofing systems, and available in a range of sizes to accommodate most building needs.
The three-piece fascia system consists of a continuous formed galvanized or extruded aluminum retainer, depending on the rating, that is self-locating and pre-punched with slotted holes to accommodate building expansion and contraction. The snap-on fascia cover is available in 24 gauge or 22 gauge galvanized steel, or in .040”, .050”, or .063” aluminum, depending on the required rating. Matching 4”-wide concealed splice plates allow fascia covers to expand and contract without creating visible gaps. PermaSnap is an FM tested and approved coping system for use on parapet walls up to 32” wide, and offers some of the highest wind ratings in the industry. PermaSnap is compatible with most roofing systems and is available with face heights of 4” to 12”.
The highest performing PermaSnap system comes with heavy-duty 16 gauge galvanized steel clips, 6”-wide concealed splices with integral gutter, and snap-on coping cover. A dual hook cover profile provides a clean, professional look and offers some of the highest wind protection ratings in the industry. Snap on covers are available in 24 gauge or 22 gauge galvanized steel or .040”, .050”, .063”, or .080” aluminum.
Both TerminEdge and PermaSnap edge metal systems are available with a 25-year category five wind warranty for wind-speeds up to 155 mph. All OMG EdgeSystems products are supplied in 10’ lengths for easy handling on the roof. In addition, users have a choice of 31 standard colors to match virtually any design requirements.
