ALLENTOWN, Pa. — ATAS International introduces a new coping, which incorporates secure locking features to increase its performance in high wind environments. Rapid-Lok SL Coping is a snap-on system with continuous cleats front and back with no exposed fasteners.
The system includes the coping cover offered in a wide variety of materials, gauges, and colors in 12-foot 0-inch lengths; a continuous 22 gauge canted front cleat to provide slope and spring rear cleat to snap-on; guttered internal splices that eliminate the need for caulk or tape at the joints; and all cleat spacing tools and screws required for proper installation. Rapid-Lok SL Coping has a 20-year 120 mph windstorm warranty and has been tested per ES-1 as required by International Building Code for low-slope perimeter edge systems. Factory fabricated miters, end caps, and other accessories are available for a complete Rapid-Lok SL Coping installation.
This new product joins ATAS’ other three copings: Continuous Cleat Coping, Rapid-Lok Coping, and Rapid-Lok Ultra Coping.
"Rapid-Lok SL Coping meets the growing demand for a continuously cleated coping system that snaps on without any exposed fasteners or need for time consuming crimping in the field," said Bob LeClare, director of perimeter edge metal for ATAS. "Additionally, testing per ANSI/SPRI/FM 4435/ES-1 has shown Rapid-Lok SL Coping can resist very high wind speeds; and the system includes pre-punched cleats, setting tools, and fasteners to assure it is installed to perform as tested."
