Specialty Roof Curbs

Sometimes, a square roof curb won't cut it. For those instances, SSM has you covered.

Speciality Roof Curbs

Specialty curbs respond to a number of different project-specific variables. SSM responds to your project’s specific needs.

Some elements in construction can be hard to anticipate.  This is probably most true when it comes to the components that make up a part of a building’s overall performance.  Vertical pipe penetrations, speciality mechanical systems and steep roof pitches are just a few conditions that can create challenges.

That is where SSM comes in to assist you and your team.

Made to your specifications, the width, length and height of the curbs are all variable.  This is not a “one size fits some” product.  The curb width and the mounting flange can also be modified as can the interior insulation components.  Every project is different and we do not have a problem with that.

For more information or assistance, please fill out the form on the left to tell us about your project.  We will get back to you quickly.  You can also contact Derek Mills directly at 816.627.5437 or by sending him an e-mail at:  dmills@ssm-kc.com.
