Five Benefits of Factory Punched Roof Systems from Butler Manufacturing

Butler MR-24 Roof System
8/5/2016

For commercial buildings, there are a lot reasons to use factor punched roof systems as opposed to traditional roofing. Our partner, Butler Manufacturing, has the most advanced factory roofing system available – the MR-24. The MR-24 roof system features a 360 degree Pittsburgh double-lock seam and is finished on site with Butler’s Roof Runner seaming machine. In this post, we will look at five benefits of Butler’s factory punched roof systems.

1. Cost and energy efficient

Because factory punched panels are moved separately from their supporting structure, the deterioration, caused by thermal cycling, is avoided.

2. Guaranteed proper alignment

When roofing systems are produced and bunched in the factory it guarantees exact alignment of the roof system. The precise alignment increases the system’s durability and ensures it can adapt to fluctuations in temperature.

3. Sustainable, environmentally friendly design

The MR-24 roof system uses fewer materials than traditional roofing systems. It also requires minimal upkeep and is recyclable. Because of its environmental friendliness and 40 year lifespan, the system will contribute to gaining LEED certification.

4. Increased weathertightness

The MR-24 roof system is the most weathertight on the market. Butler is so confident in this fact that they offer a 25 year warranty for weathertightness. The extreme weathertightness is achieved by the design of the panels and curb system fasteners and their position on the inner flange of the roof’s curbs.

5. More durable and long lasting

This roofing system can easily remain functional for twice as long as traditional roofing systems and is the most durable and long lasting system available.
