A new product from Mule-Hide Products Co. promises to save time and reduce materials costs when installing raised roof edges, gravel stops, and full coping caps in single-ply roofing systems. The EclipseEdge edge metal profile uses a two-part design with a base and a top cover to eliminate steps often required in traditional installations.
EclipseEdge is not fastened to the horizontal surface of the roof, which eliminates the need to seal fasteners with membrane flashing. Joint covers are not needed either thanks to notches in the ends of the top cover that allow for easy overlapping and a continuous clip can be omitted when the face dimension exceeds four inches. The fastener holes are pre-punched and the product can be installed using battery-operated equipment.
EclipseEdge complies with ANSI/SPRI ES-1 and is available in prefinished steel, aluminum, stainless steel, and bonderized steel. The standard base is fabricated from 22-gauge GALVALUME® Plus steel or .050-gauge aluminum. The cover is available in 24-gauge GALVALUME with mill or Kynar® finish, 24-gauge stainless steel or .040-gauge aluminum in mil or Kynar finish.
