Tite-Loc panels combine structural panel performance with architectural panel aesthetics. Tite-Loc panels are corrective leveled to provide superior panel flatness. A factory-applied sealant bead is applied for additional weather resistance. Maximum panel length is 64’ and minimum panel length is 4’. Consult factory for longer lengths.
Tite-Loc panels feature a 2” leg height that requires mechanical field seaming after installation. Panels have a concealed-fastener floating clip system designed to allow for thermal expansion/contraction.
All flashing and trim shall be fabricated by manufacturer or qualified fabricator. Flashing shall be PAC-CLAD aluminum (.032 – .063 gauge as specified) or PAC-CLAD steel (24 gauge or 22 gauge as specified). A 30-year non-prorated finish warranty can be supplied covering finish performance. Vinyl masking is recommended on all fabrication applications where extra handling is expected. NOTE: The strippable film must be removed immediately after installation.
Tite-Loc panels are intended for use in architectural and structural roofing. Substrates may include 5/8” (min.) plywood, nailboard insulation or equal with an underlayment of ice and water shield or 30# (min.) roofing felt applied horizontally from eave to ridge. Other substrates may include metal decking, purlins or rigid insulation in conjunction with bearing plates.
A minimum 1/2:12 pitch is required. Contact Petersen Aluminum for further assistance with projects details.
For coastal applications, aluminum panels along with stainless steel clips must be used for finish warranty. Consult a local architect/engineer for compliance with local codes and conditions.
Tite-Loc Plus panels are factory-formed to length and field-seamed to a 180˚ lock (Tite-Loc Plus). The panels have been designed for application over a wide variety of substrates on roof slopes as low as 1/2:12 pitch. Available in 12”, 16” and 18” widths, Tite-Loc and Tite-Loc Plus panels can be produced in 22 and 24 gauge steel or .032 and .040 aluminum.
The Tite-Loc Plus seamer runs in one direction. Tite-Loc Plus panels should be installed from left to right to ensure the seamer travels down slope. The seamer will not travel up slope on a roof pitch greater than 4:12.
