Installation Details

Metro Installation Details Metro panels can be installed using a BATTEN or BATTEN-LESS install method, with either system the panel is the same. Simply select the method of installation you will use and download/print the PDF file for that system. INSTALLATION WARNING! These installation details are provided to demonstrate a recommended installation method for Metro roof panels and accessories. The details and information in this document reflect current roofing practices used in the United States. Installers of Metro roof panels & accessories should, have knowledge of roof structures, an understanding of how to work with stone-coated steel panels and accessories and be experienced at working on sloped roof environments. Metro recommends installers of its products use a Metro Installation Kit (1-Cutter, 1-Foot Bender & 1-Foot Bender Attachment) and to have completed a ‘SMART-Start On-Site Installer Training Orientation Program’ (http://metroroofs.com/SmartStartTraining.cfm) for each profile they attempt to install. Metro does not consider its products to be a ‘Do-It-Yourself’ (D.I.Y) product, mainly due to the need for specialized cutting & bending tools used during installation.
