SAF Commercial Gutter Systems Testing SPRI-GD-1

SAF Perimeter Systems Gutter Systems Tested to Meet ANSI/SPRI GD-1 Standards

Villa Rica, GA – January 7, 2015 — Perimeter Systems, a division of Southern Aluminum Finishing Co., (SAF), announces the successful conclusion of tests to confirm the company’s Designer and Industrial Series Gutter Systems meet ANSI/SPRI GD-1 Structural Design Standard for Gutter Systems Used with Low-Slope Roofs. The testing protocol was completed by an independent third party laboratory this Fall.

“Having our Industrial Gutter System tested to the GD-1 standard confirmed expectations,” according to SAF Perimeter Systems Product Manager, Corey Faciane. “But, we were especially pleased to learn our concealed two piece Designer Series Gutter System tested beyond industry standards in all three test categories.”

Since the introduction of the company’s innovative Designer Series line of gutter systems nation-wide in 1990 there have been no reported failures.

The pre-engineered Perimeter Systems Designer Series Commercial Gutter System features a concealed liner and precision telescoping lap joints supported by heavy duty mounting brackets designed for high load capacities. Appealing to Architects and designers, a decorative snap-on fascia system conceals the actual gutter and all supporting components. Four standard profiles, with custom shapes available, give architects and building owners design freedom to enhance any building’s exterior.

The Perimeter Systems Industrial Series Gutter Systems are designed for extra-large capacity and to withstand heavy snow and ice conditions. This series features four standard profiles, four sizes each, and includes exposed heavy duty support brackets and interior straps.

Both Gutter Series are available in 56 standard colors and a variety of aluminum thicknesses. Custom colors are available and accommodated in the SAF Paint & Coating facility.

The GD-1 standard assures building officials, owners, designers and contractors that a tested gutter system meets minimum performance standards for low-slope roof installations.
