Roof Hugger’s are 10’- 12' long, tested, high strength, structurally correct, 16 ga., 0.060”min., G-90, 50 ksi, “Z” shaped sub-purlins, specifically notched to let the ribs of any existing metal panel pass through the vertical leg of the “Z”.
This unique, highly tested, retrofit system allows any new metal roof to be installed over an existing metal roof in a code compliant method. Leaving the old metal roof in place will minimize any disruption to current building operations, save construction time, money and allow for thermal upgrading of the existing building.
They can also bring the existing building up to the current building code and even "Harden" it beyond the code if requested. They are compatable with any new roof panel and are ideal for upgrading from screwdown to standing seam metal roofing.
