What is the Roof Runner?

Butler’s pre-engineered Roof Systems and Wall Systems¬†utilize the MR-24 Roof Runner which is a four-stand, roll-forming machine used to create a weather-tight seam between panels. This seam is the same seam that is found on top of barrel drums and is one of the tightest seams in the business. It originated in Sweden and has been used in various areas of the globe. Volvo automobile manufacturers have utilized the machine in their industry to seam halves of gas tanks together!

Creating the Perfect Seal

When this powerful seam-sealing machine is connecting to wall or roof panels, all four of the stands in the machine bend the seam 45 degrees until it forms a complete 180 degree locked seam. The builder laps the attachment clip to one side of the panel. As the panels are joined, it rolls up and the tabs get rolled inside, which holds the roof down to the structural system. Within that joint lies sealant that helps keep that seam weather-tight. Watch the video below is demonstration of how it functions and the seam it creates!
