Proven Building Quality

An ingenious approach to even the smallest building components adds up to better quality and durability. Our building systems are engineered to exact specifications for higher-quality installation and better building performance.

Product Differences

Factory Punching

Proper roof panel alignment is crucial to weathertight performance and the ability to successfully install closures, roof accessories and trim. All roof panels and structural members of the MR-24® roof system are factory punched to ensure proper alignment.

MR-24 Roof System Clip

The roof clip holds the standing-seam roof panels to the supporting structural members. We designed our clip to allow the roof to move freely as panels expand and contract in response to daily and seasonal temperature changes.

Staggered Panel Splices

Many of our competitors join four panel corners at the same location, making it almost impossible to seal and keep weathertight. We stagger splices, resulting in a roof system more impervious to leaks.

Weathertight Seams

The MR-24 roof system features the tightest seam available today. Its 360-degree Pittsburgh double-lock seam is the same seam used on beverage cans. The MR-24 roof system is the only one on the market where the critical final 180 degrees of the seam are mechanically field-rolled to ensure weathertightness.

Kynar 500® And Hylar 5000® Finishes

The standard paint finish on all our painted roof panels, wall panels and trims has a 25-year warranty protecting against blistering, peeling, cracking and chipping. It’s available in a variety of colors, including many that meet the reflectance and emittance standards established by the energy codes for “cool roofs”.

Flexible Ridges

Our unique ridge uses a single exposed fastener for every 50 in our competition’s design. Our approach best reduces the potential for leaks and helps you save on installation costs. We also eliminate the need for drilling — and the metal shavings it produces — so you won’t have to worry about rusting (as found in other manufacturers’ ridge designs).

Gable Trims

Our seamed-in gable trim requires 85 percent fewer fasteners, resulting in less potential for leaks, roof problems and maintenance. It’s also designed to expand and contract with temperature changes.

Steel Rod Bracing

The bracing system is a building’s backbone. Our steel-rod bracing will retain its original strength and tightness over time. Wire rope and cable can stretch and sag, compromising the structural and roof integrity of your building.

Acrylic-Coated Structurals

Butler uses only acrylic-coated, galvanized C/Z structural members for a dramatically brighter interior finish than red oxide primer options.

Butlerib® II Roof And Wall System Fasteners

Butler factory punches its structural and roof systems, and uses Scrubolt™ fasteners that have twice the pullout strength of self-drilling screws. Our exclusive Lock-Rivet™ fastener further enhances weathertight performance of the Butlerib II roof system.

Roof Curb Solution

Studies show 90 percent of roof leaks are due to poorly designed or poorly installed roof penetrations. All our roof curbs and openings are fully engineered at the factory, so there is no field engineering. Unlike the exposed fastener designs other manufacturers use, our internal flange design conceals fasteners within the curb and essentially eliminates leaks.
