FlashCo is expanding its Edge Metal Systems with the addition of PVDF Painted edge metal for low-slope roofing systems. The new PVDF edge metal will be sold in 25 different colors, including 12 fast ship colors. FlashCo PDVF edge metal profiles include drip edge, gravel stop, and sloped and flat coping. All PDVF edge metal is made to order in 10 foot lengths and manufactured in FlashCo’s 8 plant locations throughout the U.S.
“We have had a lot of success with our TPO and PVC coated metal,” says FlashCo President, Greg Morrow. “The PVDF painted edge metal is really a natural extension of our Edge Metal Systems. We already have the equipment in place for making the profiles needed in the industry and with our locations throughout the country, that gives FlashCo another opportunity to save roofers time.”
FlashCo’s PVDF edge metal products are manufactured using 24-gauge, G90 galvanized steel sheet that is painted with Kynar 500® or Hylar 5000® resins. The painted steel provides superior color retention and allows FlashCo to offer non-prorated coating warranties for most applications. In addition, FlashCo will offer 24-gauge galvanized metal cleats as an option for all painted edge metal profiles.
“With our extensive background selling coated metal, we understand the challenges of getting metal to the job site undamaged,” says Greg. “Our strategically located plants allow us to deliver most jobs on our own trucks. Therefore, we handle the metal from beginning to end and that makes a huge difference in avoiding damage, or other issues. We know how important it is to deliver on time and ready to use.”
FlashCo debuted its new PVDF Edge Metal line at the 2022 Western States Roofing Expo, and at the 2022 RCAT/MRCA Roofing Conference.
