Butler Manufacturing’s MR-24 standing-seam metal roof system, the SunLite Strip features a self-curbing design that reduces the risk of leaks around flashings. The 24”-wide linear
daylighting system sits snugly on the MR-24 panel’s seams, directing rain or melting snow to run off the panel onto the roof. Its dome construction from Sunoptics uses thousands of mirrorlike elements to capture light and deflect it into a building.
