The Everlast II Panel
Our metal differs from the traditional nine inch rib profile, as the panels have larger bends and sharper ridges, making them more rigid. And while most panels are 29 gauge, our panels are 28 gauge before paint and heat formed to prevent cracking on the ribs. We have 16 color options available with trims to match. We can bend both standard and custom trims in lengths of up to 20′ while you wait. The Everlast II profile is perfect for application on a variety of projects- ranging from agricultural to residential applications of roofing or siding.
Why does Everlast Heat Form?
Cracks allow moisture, which is often contaminated by atmospheric pollutants, to penetrate the protective surface of the coating, and cause the substrate to rust or corrode. In fact, the fracture in the paint can cause a painted panel to corrode at a faster rate than an unpainted panel. At the point when the paint film has been opened, electrochemical cells are established which will promote greater and faster corrosive attack. The result is accelerated corrosion at these areas because of their tendency to remain wet longer.
Photos show how Everlast’s Heat Forming™ panel outlasts the competitor’s panel. The Heat Formed™ panel creates a paint system that is more flexible and therefore better able to withstand the rigors of the forming process. The paint coverage is not compromised and the result is an outstanding barrier protection. This barrier protection prevents corrosion by isolating the steel form.
Snap Lock Profile
We offer a 16″ concealed fastener Snap-Lock profile, which is great for adding a polished look to any roof. Recommended for residential and commercial applications, there is no need for clips, as the panels are fastened to the roof deck with pancake head fasteners. These panels are available in either 24 or 26 gauge with 16 paint options available.
