Home > Companies > Garland UK > R-MER LOC Metal Roofing System

Garland R-MER standing seam systems can be used for both roof and wall applications. It is suitable for new-build construction, re-cladding and over-roofing.

The system combines watertight integrity, aesthetic versatility, and intelligent sustainability to meet the widest possible range of functional and aesthetic requirements. R-MER is available in a standard width of 500 mm; other widths of 333 mm and 400 mm are available on request.

Innovative fixing systems:

The innovative fixing system principles are based on improvements to the way the roof cladding is fixed and installed. The fixing method has been developed in such a way that no problems arise through wind load or thermal expansion as a consequence of temperature fluctuations and ensures long-term functional security. Despite wide clip distances the roof is still walkable and self-supporting. The system allows for quick and simple installation without time consuming mechanical zipping.

Breather membrane and rigid insulation board:

With R-MER metal roofing systems it is optional whether to install a protective breather membrane and also a compressed mineral thermal insulation. If a warm roof system is required, various thermal insulation options are possible including mineral wool and rigid PIR insulation. Consult literature for further details.

Tapered, curved or tapered curved profiled sheets:

Also available are tapered, curved or tapered curved sheets. Tapered profiled sheets with a minimum width of 230 mm and a maximum standard width of 500 mm are possible. The minimum roof pitch requirement for curved roofs is lowered (locally limited) if the roof elements are arranged in such a way that they run continuously through or are welded at the ridge side.

Standard product features

Profiled sheet size (h x w):

67 x 500 mm (400 and 333 mm special widths available to order).

Roof pitch:

Minimum roof pitch of 1.5° (2.6 %) for roofs without transverse joints. The minimum roof pitch increases for roofs with transverse joints/ penetrations (e.g. roof lights) to 2.9° (5 %), except when completely sealed welded (to the upper roof shell of the profiled sheets) soakers are used.
