“Serious performance through superior design” is promised by the new Zeus-Shield™ Standing Seam Roof System introduced by Olympia Steel Buildings for their pre-engineered steel buildings and metal building systems. Zeus-Shield represents a new age of standing seam metal roofing with a number of advanced features making the Zeus-Shield metal roofing system the best in its class.
Recent changes in wind uplift resistance requirements and testing methods have called for a new approach to roof performance. While other manufacturers continue to react to these changes with makeshift solutions, Zeus-Shield has invested in a totally new patented method and technology specifically designed to meet and exceed these new requirements. The breakthrough technology behind the Zeus-Shield seaming system makes the Zeus-Shield metal roof the best in its class for performance, reliability and cost efficiency.
“The patented technology offers considerable benefits to the roof designer, the roof installer, the contractor and the building owner. All four benefit from Zeus-Shield’s dependability, superior performance and cost efficiency,” says Olympia Steel Buildings company president, Arnold Davis.
The Zeus-Shield system sets itself apart from other standing seam metal roofs with steel panels that are designed to last, innovative clips that add stability while still allowing for thermal expansion and contraction and a patented seaming system designed to handle the most stringent uplift requirements. Their proven, patented seam provides superior wind and weather protection under all roof loading conditions, ensuring that the installed roof will perform as designed and at a minimum cost.
Standard industry wind tunnel tests divide wind loading on a roof into three zones of uplift. Unlike other roof systems, the Zeus-Shield patented standing seam roof system accommodates all three zones simply and efficiently by selecting one of three patented seaming methods designed specifically to meet the uplift load for that zone. Unlike other standing seam roof systems, with Zeus-Shield, no changing purlin spacing, no changing panel thickness and no installation of external clips over the seam are required, resulting in lower overall costs for both materials and installation man-hours.
“In almost every case, your entire roofing system is accomplished with one consistent purlin spacing, one panel size, and one clip throughout, making it easy, reliable and cost-efficient,” says Davis. “You are assured of superior performance and on-schedule completion with Zeus-Shield technology because the Zeus-Shield roof system eliminates the need to run an electric seaming machine as the roof is installed. No more delays in putting on the roof waiting for the seamer to get to the job, because the seaming can be done at any time after the roof panels have been laid. Your bottom-line result is dependable roof performance.”
The Zeus-Shield standing seam metal roof system has the highest uplift resistance and insurance ratings and listings of any 24” wide 24 gauge standing seam roof in the industry. Zeus-Shield is among the most tested roofs in the industry and Zeus-Shield’s outstanding credentials assure code approval and the lowest insurance rates. Zeus-Shield standing seam metal roofs are available in both Trapezoidal and Architectural profiles for low-slope and steep-slope roofing applications and a choice of nine panel colors using TRINAR® COOL CHEMISTRY® Series color coatings that incorporate “cool pigment” technology offering possible energy savings of up to 40%.
