Turn-Up Tool

Turn-Up Tool

The Turn-Up Tool bends up the top of the panels between the ribs. This effectively closes in the spaces between the panel ribs, preventing water blowing water from going any further. It can be used by itself or in conjunction with our outside rubber foam closures for an even more watertight seal. Works well on many areas including ridges, hips, endwalls, transitions, the lower end of chimneys and more.
