Are you a sheet metal shop, roofer or sider that often uses commodity flat sheet? That is the generic term for products better known as brown/black, brown/white and primer or pre-prime. The term commodity implies that all suppliers offer the same product with the same quality but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Much of the commodity sheet available in the industry are produced with a cheaper and less corrosion resistant G30 or G60 galvanized substrate. Bryer on the other hand mill sources all of our commodity sheet with a full AZ50 Galvalume substrate! This is an identical substrate to what our architectural Kynar products use.
The paint systems in 2-sided commodity sheet also can be vastly different in quality. Not only is most supplied as a non-warranted polyester system, it’s also not uncommon to see sheets come in with much thinner paint coverage, and sometimes even primerless systems. While you may not be able to tell with the naked eye when brand new, these inferior products will fade & chalk significantly faster and, ultimately, fail much sooner than higher quality systems. Bryer supplies all of our brown/black and brown/white with a full 1.0mil HDP paint system that comes with a standard 20-year finish warranty.
So now you’re telling yourself “sure, that sounds great, but I can’t stay competitive if I start using these more expensive products”. Not so! Bryer’s commodity sheet program is extremely competitive in the marketplace and most often one of the lower cost options! Give us a call today to check pricing and find out more about how you can save money and offer a higher quality product all at the same time!

Explosive growth continues at Bryer with the introduction of a new residential division in conjunction with 3 new panel profiles. The panel profiles consist of two standing seam options as well as an economical 3-foot wide thru-fastened profile. Bryer is staying true to it's roots by offering a higher end product as part of it's residential offering.
Bryer has added 12 Kynar colors in 26 gauge to our stocked inventory. Available in both 40-7/8" flat sheet and 20-1/8" wide slit coil the new colors combine with an AZ50 Galvalume substrate for industry leading performance and durability. The new 26 gauge colors match existing colors available in 22 and 24 gauge allowing for seamless project integration across gauges.
All of the new 26 gauge Kynar colors will be kept in pre-slit coils at 20-1/8" wide for immediate availability. Other widths are available with a few extra days lead time. Please inquire for readily available coil sizes and lead times in custom slits.
The next generation of Kynar coated colors and patterns have arrived! Bryer is excited to introduce Natural FX Coatings; state of the art multi-coat finishes that allow for patterns of unparalleled detail and subtle depth.
Currently stocked in 22 gauge with a AZ50 Galvalume substrate, Natural FX is available as sheet, coil or any of our over 20 different roof, wall and soffit panel profiles.

As part of Bryer's ongoing expansion a new rollforming mill was commissioned to expand our extensive product offering and improve lead times. The new mill sailed through trials and is now in full time operation in our Auburn facility. The mill produces V-Rib 34, which is a new profile for Bryer, along with an upgrade to the existing 7.2 Rib profile.
Bryer has added two new profiles the their line of TBC-Symmetry panels, bringing the total to 9 distinct patterns. Like the original profiles the new Symmetry-25 and Symmetry-63 will be available with a nailing flange, flat clip or offset clip in continuous lengths up to 45.
TBC-Symmetry has been a highly successful series for Bryer offering one of the only economically rollformed concealed fastener ribbed wall panels in the Pacific NW. For more information or sample panels please contact your Bryer representative.
Bryer's ongoing growth leads to TBC-Masterseam, a new standing seam profile suited for residential and light commercial applications. TBC-Masterseam is a 1-1/2" high mechanically seamed panel that provides for an economical option in 12" wide configurations. This profile is also an excellent choice when the design calls for natural metals like copper or zinc.
TBC-Masterseam is UL-580 Class 90 rated and has been fully tested in accoradance with ASTM air, water and wind uplift requirements. For additional information click here or feel free to shoot us an email for pricing and availability.
As 22 gauge becomes increasingly popular in the architectural and commercial markets Bryer is responding by adding pre-painted Kynar colors to our standard stock offering. Colors stocked in standard 48” widths now include Regal White, Sandstone, Medium Bronze, Dark Bronze, Slate Gray, Charcoal, Matte Black, Metallic Silver and Weathered Zinc. These are in addition to standard 22 gauge Galvalume Plus (resin coated) and A606 Weathering Steel (Cor-Ten). Bryer is actively looking at opportunities to expand our 22 gauge product line so please give us a call for the most up to date availability.
Bryer is pleased to announce the introduction of TBC-Symmetry, a series of concealed fastener wall panels available exclusively from The Bryer Company. TBC-Symmetry offers the designer the option of 7 distinct profiles within the panel series, all with symmetrically formed ribs with varying patterns. The panels are interchangeable and available with a fastening flange (F series), an 18 gauge clip (C series) that allows for expansion/contraction or an offset clip that also allows for a ½” air space between the panel and substructure.
At 7/8” deep Symmetry is ideal for using in conjunction with other materials or mixing and matching in both vertical and horizontal applications. The lower profile makes flashing around windows, doors and other penetrations much cleaner and easier. TBC-Symmetry is available in a wide array of materials from 24 to 18 gauge steel, .032” to .050” aluminum, copper, Rheinzink, A606 Weathering Steel and even customer perforated.
TBC-Symmetry is a precision roll formed product available in lengths up to 45 feet. This offers significant advantages over inconsistent shop press-broken panel systems. More efficient production, consistent rib dimensions and angles, longer lengths, cost effective pricing even on shorter lengths.

Bryer has added both 26 gauge primer and 26 gauge Gavalume Plus (with clear acrylic coating) in 48" widths to our standard stocked offering. Sheets, slit coil and panels are are now availabel in these two items.
Bryer has commissioned and installed a new high capacity rollforming line that is now up and running in the Auburn, Washington facility. The mill produces 7/8 Corrugated in gauges ranging from 26 to 18 gauge steel and .032" to .050" aluminum. The line is also capable of rollforming A606 weathering steel (Cor-Ten) as well as stainless and perforated. Panels can be cut from a max of 50' down to as small as 6 inches.
Bryer has added 24 gauge Bonderized to our standard product mix and is stocking both sheets and coil in our Auburn, WA facility. Bonderized is used in place of both galvanized and pre-primed steel in a variety of applications but mainly for use in post paint situations.
Bonderized is a zinc phosphate pretreatment the converts the galvanized substrate into a non-metallic non-conductive surface. This coating offers a multitude of advantages, including improved corrosion resistance and excellent adhesions for a variety of paint systems and application methods. Most notably, Bonderized can be soldered without any cleaning, sanding or abrading. Please feel free to give us a call if you are interested in pricing or would like to see a sample.
Bryer has added 5 new standards to our lineup of Kynar colors. In addition, a new color chart has been introduced that not only show the new colors but also highlight the line of natural materials Bryer sells in both sheet and throughout the TBC line of architectural roofing, siding and soffit panels.
The new colors are Tahoe Blue, Champagne, Vintage, Aged Tin and Rustic Steel. Vintage is a specialty finish that architects and designers rave about. Aged Tin and Rustic steel are two print pattern colors developed to offer an alternative to some of the popular naturally rusted or aged metals.
The newly added "Natural Metals" section of the color chart depict a cross section of the unpainted materials Bryer offers. These include Galvalume Plus, A606 Weathering Steel (commonly referred to as Cor-Ten), preweathered zinc, anodized aluminum and copper.
