Roof Curbs

SSM has developed a patented hybrid roof curb system that is integral with ease of installation and watertightness. The one (1) piece roof curb units can be configured to most metal profile roof panels and can be utilized for exhaust fans, vents, skylights, HVAC units and more. These are currently being utilized on numerous Butler Roof systems and on many other manufacturer’s profiles.

Prefabricated roof curb and detail

Every SSM Hybrid Roof Curb we build is handled with the same special attention to detail.  We know that, in most cases, our components must exceed the requirements of metal roof manufacturers like BlueScope, Varco Pruden, Star, MESCO, MBCI, and many more.  We want our hybrid curbs to be able to provide years of worry-free performance. Our curb fabrication always meets the most challenging and specialized requirements from oversized conditions to custom painting.  By using only state of the art equipment to manufacture in a variety of inventory materials such as Galvalume®, aluminum, and stainless steel, we believe that SSM‘s hybrid roof curbs are the best product you can purchase.

By utilizing Galvalume® as our primary material of choice for our hybrid curbs, SSM has chosen the best material available for the widest variety of applications.  Consisting of 45% zinc and 55% aluminum, this alloy looks similar to galvanized steel with a very smooth appearance.  This is due to the visible crystals or facets being much smaller and closer together than those found on galvanized steel.  Consequently, Galvalume®  is more corrosion-resistant, providing a durable and protective coating for the metal underneath, even in bare exposures.  In a nutshell, SSM uses Galvalume®i because it is a proven metal cladding choice due to its strength, corrosion resistance, and its longevity.

We bring to you the highest standards of workmanship with over 35 years experience and thousands of curbs delivered worldwide. Let our quality service with competitive pricing and quick deliveries take the worry out of your roof mounting needs and fast-track schedules. SSM is your best choice for custom curb fabrication.
