Garland’s new R-Mer Shield structural standing seam roof system provides unrivaled wind uplift performance.

R-Mer Shield’s unrivaled wind uplift performance provides the kind of worry-free protection every architect, building owner and facility manager dreams of.

Garland’s new R-Mer Shield structural standing seam roof system boasts a patent-pending two-inch high vertical seam with an extruded aluminum clip and top rail system that provide unrivaled wind uplift performance, ensuring watertight protection even in the harshest environments.

This innovative, high-performance metal roof system can span over open purlins on slopes down to ¼:12, making it ideal for retrofits over existing single ply roofs, built-up roofs, modified bitumen roofs and existing metal roof systems. The system design also provides a ½-inch clearance between the panel and substrate to increase ventilation beneath the panel.

Additional benefits include a heavy-duty one-piece clip and top rail that provide unlimited thermal movement as well as a double bead of factory-applied seam sealant that is completely isolated from the clip. Its symmetrically designed panel and cap allows for easy installation and provides flexibility during multiple phases of new construction, replacement or retrofit.

According to Charbel Boulos, P.Eng., president of Garland Canada Inc., “This new metal system is truly remarkable in terms of performance and protection. R-Mer Shield’s unrivaled wind uplift performance provides the kind of worry-free protection every architect, building owner and facility manager dreams of.”
