When it comes to protecting commercial roofing systems in extreme weather, the edge metal system is the first line of defense. The OMG line of TerminEdge Fascia and PermaSnap Coping systems are ideal for use on hospitals, schools or other buildings that are often designated as shelters during severe weather events.

TerminEdge is a fascia system with Factory Mutual (FM) system ratings up to 1-315. The system is ANSI/SPRI/FM-4435/ES-1 tested, FM approved, compatible with most commercial roofing systems, and available in a range of sizes from 3.75- to 13-inches to accommodate most building needs.

The three-piece fascia system consists of a continuous formed galvanized or extruded aluminum retainer (depending on the rating) that is self-locating and pre-punched with slotted holes to accommodate building expansion and contraction. The snap-on fascia cover is available in 24- or 22-guage galvanized steel, or in .040-, .050- or .063-inch aluminum (again, depending on the required rating). Matching 4-inch wide concealed splice plates allow fascia covers to expand and contract without creating visible gaps.

PermaSnap is an FM tested and approved coping system for use on parapet walls up to 32-inches wide. PermaSnap is compatible with most roofing systems and is available with face heights of 4- to 12-inches.

The highest performing PermaSnap system comes with 16-guage galvanized steel clips, 6-inch wide concealed splices with integral gutter and snap-on coping cover. A dual hook cover profile provides a professional look and offers wind protection: up to an FM 1-120 system rating for walls up to 28-inches wide.  Snap on covers are available in 24- or 22-guage galvanized steel or .040-, .050-, .063 or .080-inch aluminum.

Both TerminEdge and PermaSnap edge metal systems are available with a 25-year Category 5 wind warranty for wind-speeds up to 155 mph.  All OMG EdgeSystems products are supplied in 10-foot lengths for handling ease on the roof. In addition, users have a choice of 31 standard colors to match design requirements.
