The Falcon Roof Measurement tool is designed to eliminate error and increase productivity. Ask your contractors to ensure accuracy and redeploy labor with Metal-Era and Hickman’s Regional Technical Services Team.

Metal-Era and Hickman Edge Systems have one of the broadest portfolios of tested roofing and building envelope perimeter securement solutions on the market. Now, they are revolutionizing the science of the roof edge with the release of the Falcon Roof Measurement Tool.  

This innovative technology offers roofers a tool and app combo that allows them to measure the perimeter of a roof in real-time, create an installation and fabrication map and eliminate errors in details down to a tenth of a degree. This allows for far more accessibility on the roof for everyone. 

The Falcon utilizes a hybrid clamping device that measures all parapet surfaces to provide the most accurate measurement of the roof. This is a particularly groundbreaking tool in aspects of roof repair like pre-fabrication where accurate measurements are key to a successful installation. Further, with tools like these, radius, meters, transitions, end walls and other unique and difficult details become simple to measure.   

This spatial locating technology is exclusive to Metal-Era and Hickman systems and renders in real time a road map of the roof that can be color coded and labeled to match product shipment. The tool also has capabilities to capture photos of details for quoting and fabrication. 

With the Falcon Roof Measurement Tool, amateurs and experts alike can measure with accuracy to the point where they're within thousands of an inch and tenths of a degree. The impact of this technology’s accuracy and speed is undeniably positive for the roofing industry and the building owner who can be sure that they are using tools that actively work to eliminate human error. 

With this innovation, the process of measuring, quoting, delivery and installation is faster and more accurate. Ensure that you are in the right hands by requesting a tool that could make anyone successful when measuring the rooftop. Ask your contractors to choose the measurement tool that makes their measurements the best; ask them to use the Falcon Roof Measurement Tool.
