This course will explore the ways that perimeter edge metal
systems can act as an effective termination and transition between
the roof and other building components. They can be an aesthetic
feature to the building exterior and are most importantly the
roof’s first line of defense against wind.
- Identify on drawings or in the field the three roof conditions
that utilize perimeter edge metal and name the ANSI/SPRI standards
written for those conditions.
- Use ANSI/SPRI ES-1 to calculate the vertical and horizontal
negative pressures on perimeter edge due to wind.
- Specify in Division 7, Thermal and Moisture Protection, the
three perimeter edge metal test methods required by code
- Recognize, when designing or specifying perimeter edge metal,
three common perimeter edge metal design and installation errors,
and explain how they can be avoided.
