Non-Structural Parapet

Nucor's Non-Structural Parapet Systems for metal buildings consist of extended wall panels and a (18 gauge) spacer 10’-0” long to provide structural support. These types of parapets are typically used on steel and metal buildings with lower roof slopes.

Allowable heights above the roof line for non-structural parapets varies based on codes and loads in your specific local. Please be sure to consult with sales engineering or estimating prior to qualifying the type required.
