{{}} {{this.hide}} RoofScreen System

RoofScreen System image

RoofScreen System

A RoofScreen may be something added to a building to enhance aesthetics, or even make an architectural statement. Or, it could be a plain faade on the back of an old warehouse to satisfy a city ordinance requiring rooftop equipment to be screened.

Whatever your reason is for needing rooftop screening enclosures, don't take a chance on a make it up as you go installation. Trust a well thought out system designed by seasoned construction and roofing professionals. We know what we're doing, and we're not just saying that. We back that claim up with wet stamped engineering and a 20 year warranty!
Roof Attachments image

Roof Attachments

If you avoid roof penetrations like the plague, you're in good company. People are afraid of roof penetrations because of a long history of shoddy work and poor design in the industry, which makes them leak. But let's face it, roof penetrations are necessary and that's where RoofScreen™ can help you.

Trust our track record of fifty thousand successful roof attachments without a leak. We came out of the roofing and construction business so we get it. That's why we developed and patented a roof penetration system that works for architects, building owners, contractors and roofers.
Equipment Supports image

Equipment Supports

Our leak proof attachment system provides an excellent method of attaching any type of rooftop equipment. Air conditioners, ductwork, piping, satellite dishes, electrical panels and more can be safely and securely mounted to the structure.
Steel Tube Framing image

Steel Tube Framing

We've made it easy to build just about any type of structure with this modular, adjustable steel framing system. Of course RoofScreen tubes and connector fittings are perfect for building a great rooftop equipment screen. But these robust tubes and connectors are also perfect for other uses like rooftop equipment platforms, wall braces and solar racking systems, just to name a few. Really, anything you can think up can be built out of these parts. One of our customers even built a boat dock using this system (if you're interested, you can see pictures in the Design Ideas section of our Photo Gallery,).

{{}} {{this.hide}} Metal Panels & Trim

Flat Panels image

Flat Panels

Flat face panels provide a smooth clean look with minimal shadow lines. These panels are available in plain or textured finishes and are an excellent choice for an equipment screen when the desired effect is to blend with other flat surfaces in the building's architecture.

Ribbed Panels image

Ribbed Panels

Ribbed panels are inexpensive and very strong, making them excellent choices for applications where they must span over open framing like a roof screen. The rib depth provides rigidity, prevents oil canning, and allows longer spans. The deeper the ribs, the stronger the panel and farther it can span.

Textured Panels image

Textured Panels

Textured panels provide a much softer look which blends well with stucco or concrete structures. Pre-textured panels are available, or install unpainted flat face panels and field apply the textured finish.
Trims image


Adding a decorative trim to a panel can be an effective way to enhance the aesthetics of your project. RoofScreen offers many shapes and styles of trims to choose from.

Solar Racks image

Solar Racks - Silverback Solar® Racking

This is no tinker toy racking system. It's not one of those roof-compromising ballasted systems either. It's a heavy duty, serious PV racking system developed by people who understand structures and waterproofing. That's why we named it Silverback: big, strong, sturdy.

Whether your roof is wide open without obstructions, or cluttered with all kinds of equipment, Silverback Solar® Racking is a great choice. Our high strength designs allow you to put solar on commercial roofs most people would walk away from. High parapet walls, HVAC equipment and other roof clutter won't kill your project if you use Silverback. Elevated frames that span over equipment and get above shadows make it possible. Our patented roof attachment system makes it water tight.
