The goal in any project we take on is for our rooftop screens to attach directly over the deck and to the roof framing, thus eliminating the need for any additional blocking. We accomplish this 95% of the time by adjusting the length of our Simple-Frames so that each foot lands directly on top of the purlins.
Additionally, we utilize simple anchoring methods such as SDS screws, self-drilling Tek screws, and concrete wedge bolts to ensure a simple and secure connection to the structure. Our base-plates come prefabricated with holes ready to receive the appropriate fastener.
Often, we get inquiries about a project with an equipment screen that is complicated to install. These can require extremely heavy steel members, onsite welding, or many little parts and screws to complete installation, but ultimately the contractor gravitates towards our products.
That’s because our screen frames are fast and easy, only taking three bolts to completely assemble, and they’re designed so that they are fully adjustable to roof pitch after assembly, making our rooftop screens extremely flexible.
Our Simple-Frame screen system was designed by roofers with roofing in mind. We stand firm in our philosophy that a roofing detail should last as long as the roof, and the labor to roof in should not cost you a fortune (those darn sleepers will get you every time!).
By employing a basic round-and-straight-down design for the legs, our screen frames simply use the roof manufacturer’s standard pipe flashing detail, eliminating the requirement for pitch pockets, sleepers or other awkward roofing details that will need to be serviced in just a few short years.
It’s our priority to make sure your screen projects go smooth every time. Along with our installation manuals and details, give us a call and we’ll walk you through the installation process step by step, as well as any other design or product questions and support you might need help with. We’ll provide free, unlimited support for every project you have from start to finish.
