Green Pigment

The Shepherd Color Co.’s Dynamix Green 30C612 and 30C678 are stir-in inorganic color pigments. Dynamix Green 30C612, C.I. Pigment Green 50 is a yellow-shade green, and Dynamix Green 30C678, C.I. Pigment Green 26 is a dark green. Both are part of the Arctic range for coatings and can be used widely in color matches to maximize total solar reflectance, minimize heat build-up and reduce overall energy costs. The pigment technology requires only simple mixing.

Interlocking Roof

The UNA-CLAD UC-14 Roofing System has a continuous interlocking design that includes an easy, snap-together seam. The product’s seam reduces installation time because it requires no mechanical seaming or separate battens. Available with a factory-injected, inseam sealant, the Firestone Building Products Co. Inc. product can be installed over Firestone ISO 95+ polyiso insulation and used with other Firestone roof systems. The system is offered in a wide variety of Kynar paint and coil-anodized finishes, as well as copper, and is available with stiffing ribs, striations and embossing design options. UC-14 is compliant with ASTM E1592, ATSM E1646 and ASTM E1680 and is UL 580 Class 90 listed. It is eligible for Firestone Red Shield Warranty coverage up to 20 years.

Glazing System

Designed to dramatically reduce field labor and improve installation quality, a new glazing system by Fry Reglet Architectural Metals installs 20 to 25 percent faster than traditional methods and guarantees straight, even interior glass installations and sightlines at window sills and ceilings. The Fry Reglet system includes glazing retainer pieces that accommodate 2 1/2- and 3 5/8-inch (64- and 92-mm) metal studs, as well as 1/2- or 5/8-inch (13- or 16-mm) drywall. The 3/4-inch (19-mm) glazing groove will accept a variety of thicknesses of glass, allowing the glazing system to function in full glazed, chair rail and clerestory glazing applications.
