Morin,® a Kingspan Group Co., Bristol, Conn., recently introduced an on-site roll-forming process that runs metal panels to roof eaves.

The 161-foot-long panels required for a roofing project on Logan High School, Russellville, Ky., could not be delivered via truck, so the company manufactured 89,000 square feet of 18-inch-wide SymmeTry Roof Series 22-gauge Galvalume® panels on-site in varying lengths from 46 feet to 161 feet.

Once the roll former was in place, about 100 feet from the eaves, three scissor lifts were placed between the roll former and roof edges where the panels were guided into place for installation.
