Because roofing wall panel and flat sheet products are prefinished material, care must be exercised during fabrication and erection to avoid damage to the finished surface. Care must be taken to avoid scratching or marring the finish. A protective strippable film is available upon request.

Metal wall panels and roofing systems are the cladding materials of choice for “green” construction. East Lake Metals metal products are recyclable upon final disposal and these products are largely produced of recycled content.
Test reports and additional product performance data are available upon request.
Sheet metal roofing and wall panels are inherently fire resistant. UL assembly fire resistance ratings of 1,2 and 3 hours are available.
ELM metal sheet and coil should be stored in a well ventilated, dry place with moisture contact. Moisture (from rain, snow, condensation, etc.) trapped between layers of material may cause water stains or white rust, which can affect the service life of the material and will detract from its appearance
If outdoor storage cannot be avoided, protect the sheet and coil with a ventilated canvas or waterproof paper cover. Do not use plastic, which can cause condensation. Keep the material off the ground in an inclined position with an insulator such as wood
Maximum 2,000lb of sheets per pallet.
Remove the protective film immediately as it film may degrade or become brittle with exposure to direct sunlight.
The performance of this material in the field depends substantially on the integrity of the paint film and on the underlying coating of aluminum being intact. Therefore, this ELM product should not be used in areas of high abrasion or where it is subject to mechanical damage.
Product is pre-finished material; care must be exercised during fabrication and erection to avoid surface damage.
ELM recommends a minimum bend radius of 2T. Anything less than a 2T bend radius can cause crazing to the material.
Attention should also be paid to good house-keeping practices.
Tools must be clean and properly dressed.
Avoid dragging sheets over surfaces which may scratch or mar the finish.
Do not cut with power saws or abrasive blades.
For general sheet metal use in building applications
Flashings should be shop fabricated from material that is the same thickness and finish as the panels to which they are attached. Where practical, flashings should be furnished in 10’ (3 m) lengths. Exposed flashings should be lapped 6”. Use premolded polyethylene or EPDM closures to match the profile of the panel in lengths as supplied by the manufacturer.
Caulking should be polyurethane where it is exposed to the weather and there is no thermal movement. Caulking should
be non-skinning, nonhardening gun grade butyl sealant or butyl sealant tape with a minimum thickness of 3/32″ where it is concealed and where thermal movement must be accommodated. All caulking or sealing should be applied in a neat manner with excess caulking or sealant removed from exposed surfaces.
The roofing and wall panel system should be installed plumb, straight and true to adjacent work. Polyethylene or EPDM profile closures should be provided and used as needed. No perforations should be made in roofing, wall panels or flashings by fasteners except as shown on the drawings.
Observe all industry recognized jobsite safety practices.
Dura Coat Products, Inc Durapon 70 PVDF Fluorocarbon provides a 40 Year Limited Warranty.

Metal roof, wall panel and flashing systems offer very low maintenance. Periodic inspection to ensure panel, sealant and flashing integrity is advisable. Depending on local environmental conditions, occasional pressure washing using a mild detergent solution can be effective in removing dust and dirt.
