System replaces wood nailers

The W.P. Hickman Co. has introduced its EdgeBox Perimeter Metal Blocking System, which features a two-piece slotted design that replaces traditional wood blocking or nailers at the perimeter of low-slope roof systems and reportedly can be used with a wide range of roof and insulation systems.

EdgeBox Perimeter Metal Blocking System attaches to a roof deck and is used with W.P. Hickman's fascia profiles. The product's rigid box-shaped profile reportedly acts as a retainer for lightweight concrete or rigid insulation. The system is available with or without a cant to accommodate various roof system types.
