Roof Products & Systems has added manufacturing capabilities in Huntsville, Ala. The new facility joins existing facilities in Bensenville, Ill., and Sanger, Calif.

Sean Steimle, vice president of Hart & Cooley Inc.’s Commercial Products Group, attributes the manufacturing growth to a growing realization by contractors that using RPS pre-manufactured roof curbs drastically reduces the expensive field labor required to assemble the typical “knocked-down” curbs with all of the internal bracing and duct hangers required, level them to suit the deck slope, and then insulate the perimeter.

RPS officials said it can manufacture fully insulated curbs with all reinforcement and duct hangers installed and pitched to suit the project deck slope in only two to five days.

Roof Products & Systems is part of Hart & Cooley Inc.’s Commercial Products Group. The division has its headquarters in Bensenville, Ill., with operations across the country.
