The city of Tyler, Texas, recently built a new 8,865-square-foot fire station to provide better response times and coverage for the west part of the city. Designed by Lochner/BWR Division, Tyler, the fire station's seven-barrel roof system design incorporates more than 14,000 square feet of McElroy Metal Inc.'s Maxima ADV 2-inch-tall standing-seam 24-gauge Galvalume® panels in PVDF medium bronze to mimic traditional brass adorned on historic fire engines.

The 16-inch-wide panels were curved at the job site by a McElroy Metal technician and installed by Hefner Roofing LLC, Pittsburgh, using a special hoist constructed in the shape of the curved panels to transport the panels to the roof.
