R-Mer Force is a flashless metal edge system said to eliminate the need for flashing plies that would
ordinarily be installed at the roof 's edge. The system anchors to exterior walls with aluminum anchors,
using no penetrations on the roof surface. Fascia cover pieces snap onto installed anchors. Thermoplastic
elastomer compression seals contribute to a clean finish. Customized splice plates make the transition
between edge pieces uniform for a finished look. The system is available in a wide variety of colors. The
system meets building code ANSI/SPRI ES-1 requirements for structural integrity and wind resistance.
