Your facility’s roof protects a huge percentage of your assets and happens to be home to mission critical systems such as your HVAC, plumbing, electrical and even solar. So when integrating these systems on your roof, it’s vital to make sure all components mesh well while leaving your roof watertight, within code, and maintaining your roof’s warranty.Joel Stanley, our founder and pioneer, recognized this need and began designing a universal anchor that would be a seamless, non-penetrating component of the current roof system while providing the strength and engineering required to keep equipment in place. Fast forward several years – after designing, testing, and consulting with roofing experts around the globe for every environment – that universal anchor, now known as the U-Anchor, was born.
