SAF Designer & Industrial Gutter Systems 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.

Gutter Wind Test“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.

New Extruded Aluminum Arch Cornice Moldings to lower cost & reduce maintenance

Cornice ArchVilla Rica, GA – June 26, 2014 –- In an industry first the Perimeter Systems division of Southern Aluminum Finishing Co., (SAF) introduces its Vertical Radius Arch. The new Vertical Radius Arch was created using the company’s proprietary extruded cornices which are stretched-formed the ’hard way.’The Vertical Radius Arch Cornice eliminates the need for less desirable materials requiring maintenance, or costly methods like segmented aluminum profiles or continuously welded cornices.

The Vertical Radius Arch Cornice joins the company’s Designer Series Aluminum Cornice system which also includes a Horizontal Radius Arch and is used in commercial and residential buildings throughout the US. Architects and design/build contractors can now complete virtually any cornice condition with interchangeable moldings that easily combine to provide the crisp detail and longevity of extruded aluminum.

Stretched formed extruded aluminum cornice moldings in the Designer Series also feature precise joints and water resistant interlocking profiles. Contractors and owners specifying the Perimeter Systems Designer Cornices benefit from quick installation, and low maintenance inherent in aluminum products.

“Our design team has responded to requests for an aluminum cornice product to complement their arched roof designs and we are pleased to announce availability Designer Cornice Series Vertical Radius Arch,”according to Corey Faciane, Perimeter Systems Product Manager.

The extruded Designer Series Aluminum Cornice moldings are available in several classical profiles along with sills, offsets, & closure trims that meet any architectural cornice need.

SAF Perimeter Systems Introduces Extruded Radius Cornice Mouldings

Cornice-archSanford, NC – August 15, 2012 – Perimeter Systems, a division of SAF, introduces its Designer Series Stretched Formed Radius Extruded Cornice Mouldings.

New for 2012, Perimeter Systems continues its reputation for unique, innovative products. Architects and design professionals have asked and Perimeter Systems once again rises to meet the demands of the industry. Stretched Formed Radius Extruded Cornice Mouldings are now available to be customized to fit any building’s interior or exterior circumference.

With Perimeter Systems’ Designer Series Stretched Formed Radius Extruded Cornice Mouldings, Design/Build Contractors and Architects no longer have to settle for segmented miters or expensive, continuously welded cornice systems to create a classical building element for their radial structure. Stretch forming allows for uniform radius cornice sections, maintains the true radial shape of the building, all while providing exceptionally refined detail.

As with all our Designer Series Extruded Cornices, installation is a snap. These stretched formed radius mouldings may be installed on typical building sub framing or on our specially designed mounting gussets eliminating expensive framing.

Evolution of the Designer Series Extruded Mouldings

Since 1990, Perimeter Systems has provided Designer Series Formed Cornices for churches, universities, financial institutions, municipalities, and stately homes throughout the United States. Whether new construction or a historic renovation, Perimeter Systems’ innovative “interchangeable” cornice trims allow you to design beautifully sculptured cornices limited only by your imagination.

Since the introduction of the Designer Series Extruded Cornice Mouldings in 2010, Perimeter Systems has continued to develop new and exciting fabrications from these extruded mouldings to meet the escalating demand for innovative aluminum cornice products.

In 2011, our Research and Development team established new miter fabrication techniques to maintain the sharp crisp edges throughout the welded seam. These new techniques have been widely accepted throughout the Architectural community due to its refined and elegant appearance.
