There is an increasing number of natural weather phenomena that can cause a building to sustain structural damage to the roof edge terminations. That’s why it’s very important and necessary to keep in mind all the quality and safety standards during the construction of a building. The roof edge is of particular importance as it is the leading edge of protection against high wind damage, and the overall protection of commercial building projects nationwide. Always choose or provide a sheet metal option that meets ANSI/SPRI ES-1 compliance.
ANSI/SPRI ES-1 compliance is a quality standard, which ensures that roofs are tested according to rigorous parameters. This quality standard also assures that roof edge products have the potential to stand firm even in wind storms, heavy rain and other related high wind situations. They also help to ensure security to the building and to the people inside.
When it comes to ensuring that the roof edge products are in compliance with the ANSI/SPRI ES-1, ANSI SPRI FM4435 ES-1, and ANSI/SPRI GD-1 Standards, companies nationwide have counted on the professional services provided by National ES Testing Service, Inc.
