Dura Star provides 36" of coverage in a four rib panel. Dual stiffeners run between the 1-1/4" tall major ribs, providing added rigidity. North Star Metals offers the panel in 24 as well as 26 gauge thicknesses. The deep channels between major ribs provide ample drainage for low pitch roofing, and the weather tight lap seals out the harshest of weather with added suppory from a purlin bearing leg.
In order to enhance the lifespan of our product, North Star Metals exploits the benefits of pre-heating all roll-formed panels. Pre-heating increases the elasticity of not only the paint and primer, but the zinc alloys in the galvanic coating as well. This increase in elasticity allows coatings to maintain uniform adhesion throughout the roll-forming process. Having found the perfect temperature for roll forming, North Star is able to produce panels that are drastically less susceptible to micro-crazing and the inherent corrosion.
