Daylighting Roof Curb System
A key barrier against the outside elements for your building is a quality roof curb system
It is important that a roof curb is designed for a specific type of roof. Roof curbs that are effective for flat built up or flat single ply roofs can be a disaster when used with standing seam metal roof panels. In fact, even when working with standing seam metal roofing a roof curb should be designed for the manufacturer’s specific roof profile. “One curb fits all metal roofs” can be a prescription for disaster.
Roof Curb Versus a Roof Curb System
Although choosing a roof curb specially designed for a specific metal roof profile is critical, it is only part of a successful Roof Curb System. The definition of a system is a collection of interacting, interrelated components that result in predictable, consistent, positive performance.
We have chosen specific quality components based on our experience in field performance. For a successful curbed skylight installation, it is essential that every roof curb component has been selected to withstand severe weather conditions over a long period of time. Even substandard products can perform in the short-term. The key is to select high-quality components that will stand the test of time. Put simply, a quality Roof Curb System is one of the key barriers against the outside elements for any building.
