Vista, California (PRWEB) June 3, 2010
Solatube International is introducing an innovative, versatile metal roof flashing that makes it easier for architects to bring daylight into buildings without sacrificing the elegant design of metal roofs.
The new Solatube Metal Roof Flashing features a round-edge, leak-proof design that reduces the exposed surface area by 50 percent (as compared to traditional flashings), eliminates the need for bulky crickets to divert water, and can be adapted to fit virtually any Standing Seam Rib roof profile. Its unique, inverted flange design reduces roof clutter by concealing the fasteners; while Solatube International’s innovative DryLock Technique provides a triple-seal approach that virtually locks the flashing to the metal roof deck. Fully paintable, the new flashing provides a sleek, low-profile appearance that complements any roof design.
The new Solatube Metal Roof Flashing is compatible with roofs from leading manufacturers, including Butler Metal Roof Systems, MBCI, Metal Sales, and Pac-Clad. It has been tested in international markets and is now available in North America through Solatube Commercial Distributors nationwide.
