Sunward Exclusive Seal Tight Features

Exclusive Anti-Leak System®

Our Steel Buildings are the only metal buildings with the Exclusive Anti-Leak System ®. We pay a lot of attention to detail so we created this unique system to keep your steel building water tight.

Sunward Exclusive Anti-Leak System

1. Seal Tight Ridge Cap

Unlike most companies that use a non-corrugated metal pies covering 6″ of either side, we use a factory die formed ridge cap with mastic sealant up to 18″ on both sides of the top.

2. Seal Tight Soffit Sistem

Our optional Soffit System allows steel flashing and a formed closure that impedes moisture siphoning between the roof and walls. It prevents drop down soggy insulation developing.

3. Siphon Groove

We use this special gutter as part of every piece of sheeting on 36″ centers for both roof and sidewalls. It prevents internal rust to show up on your fasteners as little as 3 to 10 years, which affects your fasteners between the sheets and the base angle.

4. Sheeting Notch

Our 16 ga. galvanized angle and closure system helps impede moisture and corrosion fro developing at the bottom of your building.

5. Structural Integrity

We use Primary Frames, Secondary Frames, Extra Bracing plus Purlin and Girt Over to keep the building plumb.
It comes with a 40 year paint warranty 80 KSI yield strength for more resistance.
