SST Advantages

Posted by: admin at 11:16 am on July 17th, 2018

The numerous advantages of the Superior Seam Technology™ (SST) elevates all BRS license holders above all other standing seam roofing systems offered throughout the metal industry today. The unique DNA thread common throughout all BRS metal innovations is rooted deeply within Superior Seam Technology. At the heart of SST is the unending conscious pursuit by BRS in seeking design excellence improvements while continuing to outperform all other standing seam roofing systems on the market.
These SST advantages gives all BRS licensees assurance to manufacture and offer standing seam roofing systems that are far superior to that of their competitors whether they are competing locally, regionally, nationally or internationally. The SST inspired patented standing seam roof panel design offers three available seaming options: RollLok® (hand crimped at clips), TripleLok® and QuadLok® (mechanically field seamed) for superior weather-tightness, performance and longevity.
There are many patented clip options and/or combinations that can be utilized depending on the required project specific design criteria. The numerous clip options offered for both PanelCraft or TS-324 profiles range from the zero-clearance fixed, low/high movable with short/long bases, High Wind or the green friendly TS-324 extended Stand-off clips to give any project architect /owner the ability to create a roof solution design to meet or exceed their unique project requirement needs. These numerous  clip offerings gives opportunities to design roof systems with high zonal uplift or extended thermal expansion requirements when used in conjunction with the patented High Capacity Rake plate with up to 7” of travel and High Capacity Eave plate for optimal design performance.
This flexibility in patented clip design extends to retrofit markets of existing through fastened metal over metal roofing. The TS-324 extended Stand-Off clip heights of 2”, 2-1/2” or 3” offer a chance to place more un-faced fiberglass blanket insulation between the existing through fastened panels and the new standing seam roof system during the retrofit process. These same extended Stand-Off Clips also will allow for greater thicknesses of faced fiberglass insulation and/or systems during new construction for the single skin SST roof systems to compete economically with dual skin insulated panels for green design projects.
Superior Seam Technology™ is an advantage of strength without limitations of design for architects, owners and spec writers to bring their unique plan to reality. The constant ingredient is BRS’ efforts to continue to raise the bar of design, longevity, performance and weather-ability through the DNA of SST in all present and future innovations.
