Both the 138T & 238T also provide an excellent solution for recover opportunities when a conventional roof is in need of repair or replacement.

• The Wave Panel is an attractive, concealed fastener wall panel solution that can be installed both vertically and horizontally. The Wave Panel offers a textured appearance without visible fasteners.

• Enhanced jobsite roll forming with Archzilla® and Highroller®Jobsite Product Vehicles. Operated by factory personnel, jobsite trucks are capable of reaching eave heights up to 30 feet and, roof slopes up to 5:12.

“We are looking forward to contributing to McElroy Metal’s national footprint once the transition is complete. Additionally, Architectural Building Components’ customers will now have access to a wider selection of products such as commercial and industrial exposed fastener panels, structural framing, retrofit packages, slit coil and much more. Customers will also have access to service centers with national distribution. All of the service centers stock flat sheets and have trim fabrication capabilities, should one of our customers find themselves in a pinch. These are great people and they run a great company,” said Charlie Smith, president of Architectural Building Components.
