Press-Loc® Aluminum Gravel Stop & Coping system passes ANSI/SPRI ES-1 Wind Design standard test.

Villa Rica, GA – July 22, 2014 – Perimeter Systems division of Southern Aluminum Finishing Co., (SAF) Press-Loc® Series Gravel Stops and Coping systems have successfully passed testing to meet ANSI/SPRI/FM 4435/ES-1 Wind Design Standards for Edge Systems. The ES-1 code ensures a safe, wind resistant, commercial grade low-slope roof edge, a starting point for most low-slope roof failures.

The ANSI/SPRI RE-2 and RE-3 testing protocol was completed by an independent third party laboratory.

“This standard follows our traditional Press-Loc product design mandate to meet or exceed commercial building standards. The commercial construction industry has been moving toward the ES-1 standard for years,” according to Perimeter Systems Product Manager, Corey Faciane. In 2003 the Perimeter Systems Press-Loc products were certified to Factory Mutual’s (FM) Global Loss Prevention Data Sheet 1-49.

The Perimeter Systems Press-Loc system features compression cleats to eliminate exposed fasteners and makes installation fast and easy. Available in 56 colors in a variety of aluminum thicknesses, the Press-Loc building edge products complement the Perimeter Systems Designer Series Gutter and Cornice Series.
