McElroy Metal has put together a white paper about a successful hangar recover for Southwest Airlines. McElroy Metal Recover Manager Charlie Smith, was onsite in Orlando within a week of the initial call from Southwest Airlines to gain an understanding of the problem and goals for the project.

McElroy Metal headed up the team that developed, engineered, manufactured and installed the best solution for a roof that was damaged by 30 years of tropical storms, including Hurricane Charley in 2004.

The 238T Symmetrical Standing Seam roofing system from McElroy Metal was installed on sub-purlins from Roof Hugger. The 238T met the wind uplift requirements and the installation without a tear-off, offered the best chance for success with minimal interruption to the daily operation.
