Wood Nailer Alternative - Eliminailer-T 3" Face Height
Replacing wood nailers at the building perimeter with Eliminailer-T increases the structural integrity of the roof perimeter, significantly reduces risk of failure, and helps protect the entire roof system from costly damages and blow off. Eliminailer-T comes in varying sizes for low slope applications, non-tapered, and pitched metal roof retrofits. Using Eliminailer-T, insulation can be continuous directly to the roofs edge, improving thermal performance. Eliminailer-T is fast and easy to install and comes with pre-punched fastening holes to ensure proper installation, every time. Anchor-Tite HG Fascia, Anchor-Tite Canted Fascia, Anchor-Tite Drip Edge, and Seal-Tite Gutters are ideal roof edge partner products to complete the edge assembly.
