Copy Settings from Roof Section
This copies the settings from a roof section to the curbs page.  Just click on it and a list of the roof sections will appear to choose from.  
 
Deck Type, Mil, Color:
The deck type defaults to the last entry on the Roof Sections; however, if multiple roof decks exist you must be sure to specify the appropriate deck. Duro-last typical makes all curbs 40mil and rarely makes exceptions but the option is there.  There are color options for the curbs now which reflect Duro-lasts upcharges for colors.  
 
Select Curb Style
What kind of curb is required for your roof? How many of each type of curb? There are four types of curbs from which to choose as well as two different types of scuppers.
  1. Open Curb - The Open Curb is not welded closed to complete the square or rectangle but it is opened on one side so you can wrap the flashing around a penetration on the roof.
  2. Closed Curb - The Closed Curb must be placed over the penetration as it is not capable of opening and wrapping around the penetration..
  3.  
  4. Curb with Top - the flashing on this curb covers all sides of the penetration and is meant for those not in use.
  5. Scupper - This is a through wall drain that is lined with flashing that has a skirt on both the inside and outside of the wall. The skirt is a normal size.
  6. Metal Scupper - This is a metal sleeve inserted from the outside and it is lined with a standard Duro-Last Scupper with a skirt welded to the metal flange on the outside of the wall and has a standard skirt on the inside of the wall that will be welded to the field sheet and parapet material.

 Once you have specified a Curb Style, enter the quantity for each style. In addition to the quantity, please specify the appropriate dimensions for the sides and the skirt.
