Eliminate End Laps with a Seamless Pitch Transition Exclusively using our 238T Symmetrical Panel System
We have found a new way to minimize the opportunity for roof leaks. In addition to the 238T Panel System’s superior weather-tight installation benefits and unmatched wind uplift resistance, the two piece symmetrical panel and seam cap design also allows for a seamless pitch transition.
When two slopes meet, an apron flashing is typically required between the two roof planes. This creates two end laps on the roof and with it, several new opportunities for water penetration.
Traditional apron flashings at pitch transitions are unsightly and create a space for potential leaks and water damage.
With the advent of the 238T a pitch transition with a structural standing seam system has been redefined. A single 238T panel can be used to bridge the slope transition, eliminating the need for additional materials.
A qualified installer can complete this process by crimping the seam while gradually bending the panel before installation. This innovation allows a roof to transition from 6/12 to 3/12 in one continuous panel! Not only creating a more watertight roof system, but also a seamless, clean look that is much more aesthetically pleasing for owners or architects.
