ASHEVILLE, N.C. – The W. P. Hickman Company, a leading manufacturer of metal roof edge systems, announced the launch of a new website that focuses on improved user experience. The website, which features improved navigation that allows users to find what they are looking for quickly, can be accessed at www.wph.com.

The Hickman Wind Calculator is a tool that is prominent on the site and can be used to find the roof edge systems that meet the International Building Code’s performance requirements for metal edge securement. The new website also has enhanced product detail pages that allow users to find and compare products that best suit the needs of a project. The detail pages allow visitors to download architectural details in multiple formats for CAD or BIM, editable specifications, color charts, warranty and code information. Each page on the website contains contact information for assistance, should a visitor prefer to work directly with someone from Hickman.

Another feature of the website is a new distance learning presentation, “Roof Edge Performance and Testing” that covers the proper performance requirements, design, and installation of metal roof edges. The program earns one AIA-CES Learning Unit and qualifies as a Health, Safety and Welfare. An enhanced resource section on the website includes installation videos, product animations, a whitepaper library, field measuring instructions and templates, and industry and partner links.
