Course Description

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.

Learning Objectives:

  1. 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.
  2. Use ANSI/SPRI ES-1 to calculate the vertical and horizontal negative pressures on perimeter edge due to wind.
  3. Specify in Division 7, Thermal and Moisture Protection, the three perimeter edge metal test methods required by code (IBC).
  4. Recognize, when designing or specifying perimeter edge metal, three common perimeter edge metal design and installation errors, and explain how they can be avoided.
