by Brianna Crandall — May 2, 2018 — OMG Roofing Products, manufacturer of commercial products engineered to enhance roof system performance, has introduced a new and improved, higher performing PermaSnap Coping line. PermaSnap products can be installed on parapet walls from 4 to 32 inches wide.
The redesigned PermaSnap and PermaSnap Plus roof coping products are tested and approved to ANSI/SPRI/FM4435/ES-1 Test Standard for Edge Systems Used with Low Slope Roofing Systems, and feature a dual hook profile for “superb” wind performance and a clean surface look.
Patrick O’Connor, edge product manager at OMG Roofing, remarked:
We are very pleased with the performance of the updated PermaSnap line. PermaSnap has FM ratings of up to 1-105 for parapet walls up to 24-inches wide, and PermaSnap Plus has ratings to FM 1-120 for parapet walls up to 32-inches wide, making PermaSnap one of the highest rated coping systems on the market today.
The “FM APPROVED” mark, recognized worldwide, is said to certify a tested roof assembly that customers can trust to perform under the toughest conditions, “not simply a collection of products and parts that may or may not perform as expected.” The third-party international certification organization tests property loss prevention products and services for use in commercial and industrial facilities.
The three-piece PermaSnap System includes self-locating, pre-punched clips with pre-attached springs for high static engagement, concealed splice plates and a snap-on cover. Concealed splices are designed with internal drainage channels that direct water back onto the roof and eliminate the need for caulks or sealants, says OMG.
The snap-on cover accommodates building expansion and contraction to prevent oil-canning and does not require crimping or additional field fabrication, adds the company. In addition, PermaSnap is available with a full assortment of matching corners, end-caps and other accessories for every roof configuration including radius curves.
PermaSnap Coping is available in a wide range of Kynar500 colors and finishes to match any building design, and comes with a standard 20-year Excel Warranty for wind speeds up to 110 mph. The heavier duty PermaSnap Plus comes with a 25-year, 155 mph, Category 5 wind warranty.
