Roofing System Offers Enhanced FM Ratings
OMG Roofing Products has introduced a new and improved, higher performing PermaSnap Coping line. The redesigned PermaSnap and PermaSnap Plus coping products are ANSI/SPRI/FM4435/ES-1 tested and approved and feature a dual hook profile for superb wind performance and a clean surface look. PermaSnap products can be installed on parapet walls from 4- to 32-inches wide.
“We are very pleased with the performance of the updated PermaSnap line,” says Patrick O’Connor, edge product manager at OMG Roofing. “PermaSnap has FM ratings of up to 1-105 for parapet walls up to 24-inches wide, and PermaSnap Plus has ratings to FM 1-120 for parapet walls up to 32-inches wide, making PermaSnap one of the highest rated coping systems on the market today.”
The three-piece PermaSnap System includes self-locating, pre-punched clips with pre-attached springs for high static engagement, concealed splice plates and a snap-on cover. Concealed splices are designed with internal drainage channels that direct water back onto the roof and eliminate the need for caulks or sealants. The snap-on cover accommodates building expansion and contraction to prevent oil-canning and does not require crimping or additional field fabrication. In addition, PermaSnap is available with a full assortment of matching corners, end-caps and other accessories for every roof configuration including radius curves.
PermaSnap Coping is available in a wide range of Kynar500® colors and finishes to match any building design, and comes with a standard 20-year Excel Warranty for wind speeds up to 110 mph. The heavier duty PermaSnap Plus comes with a 25-year, 155 mph, Category 5 wind warranty.
