echo coping block

To complement the Echo Edge Blocking standard of (-300 psf) wind uplift and (Class A) fire ratings, we followed that same high standard with Echo Coping Blocks.

 

With this addition, ShreddedTire has succeeded in replacing the need for ALL LUMBER in commercial low slope roofing.

Along with the testing, a number of design changes to our Echo Coping Block and metal cap were added that we considered vital.
  1. We have separated the roof system from the coping cap assembly.
  2. Overhanging the wall by 1-1/2” maximum and 1/2” minimum, compensates for wall irregularities and variable finished wall thickness.
  3. Echo Coping Blocks are standardized from 8” to 24” wide, in 2” increments and all with a built in slope. Program the standardized blocks into your metal brake once and forget it. Perfect fit every time.
Standardization was needed to significantly reduce the cost and complexity of making and installing coping cap blocking and metal cap.

 

Good for business and good for the environment.

Pressure Treated Lumber:

In today’s dollars this 3.8 billion board feet represents $4.7 billion dollars for North America alone!

Expensive, chemically treated, it burns, bugs still like it, eventually rots and requires hundreds of millions of trees every year.

Echo Edge and Echo Coping blocks replace the need for wood blocking in roofing entirely!

It’s faster, therefore cheaper and recycles hundreds of millions of tires as our raw material.

See our easy to use calculator in this section, type in the quantity and watch how many trees you will save and tires you will recycle on just one project…

High wind blows off Coping Cap, and takes the roof with it.

Hurricane tested ECHO COPING BLOCK is always separated from the roof and has the highest uplift ratings in the industry.

ECHO COPING BLOCK uplift testing

Tested -300 psf Miami Dade NOA

ES -1 Tested and approved.

Our Echo block and the Coping metal are attached with AH-160, Tile Foam adhesive in 1-1/2” robins at 6” OC.

Tested with overhang of 1 – 1/2” maximum.

Approved for wood, steel or concrete parapet wall.

Save money and trees while recycling millions of old tires.

No fasteners used to attach Coping metal.

6” OC bead of AH-160, tile foam adhesive provides maximum uplift even on 24” wide coping (-267 psf for 24”).
ES-1 Certified up to 24” as well.

Traditional coping cap designs include the roof membrane up and over the wood blocking followed by clip and cap fasteners that puncture the waterproof seal.

When a wind event blows off the wood blocking and coping cap, the roof system goes along for the ride.

ECHO COPING BLOCK is separated from the roofing system by our built in overhang so all roofing membranes are attached to the wall.

Coping cap metal is now standardized so it’s a perfect fit every time.

Sizes of molded Echo Blocks are 8”, 10”, 12”, 14” in .40 aluminum or comparable metal.  Using .050 aluminum,  the block sizes are 16”, 18”, 20”, 22” and 24”.

Program it into your machine once and forget it.

Because of the wall overhang being 1/2” minimum and 1 1/2”max, there is flexibility based on how straight the wall is.

Example:  a very straight and well built wall that is 9” wide can utilize a 10” coping.  If the wall is not so perfect, you have the freedom to use a 12” Echo Block.

Ease of termination of the wall and roofing system under the Echo Block overhang.

Ease of installation as Echo Coping Blocks are only two foot long.

No longer do you have to struggle with full 10’ pieces of heavy lumber on the wall of a roof.

No exposed fasteners with Echo Coping Block and Cap Metal as well as Echo Edge.

In fact there are no fasteners whatsoever as the entire assembly adhered with AH-160 tile foam adhesive.

Clean look, no drilling or expensive fasteners.

Healthier as well as breathing the dust from silica, (concrete dust in photo) is a significant health hazard.

Echo Block has been tested and approved as a Class A, fire rated product at unlimited slope.

In the UL report it also states that any roofing material that is already tested as Class A over concrete, is also approved on Echo Block with additional testing.

Echo Edge and Echo Coping are simply Echo Block in different sizes.

Moisture rated, Class A fire rated sustainable replacement for wood blocking.
