Reliable Tape for Your Metal Building 

What is ECHOtape?

ECHOtape is a reliable source for adhesive tape. Here at Midwest Steel, we use All-Weather Double-Sided Tape and Seaming Tape. We use these products on any building with our insulated radiant barrier. 

"We know having the right tape can make or break your entire process, so we work with customers as partners to help them choose the right tape for the job."

Seaming Tape

The seaming tape is made from an advanced polyester and is extremely strong and easy to apply. This tape has a long-lasting power due to the instant tack, which can get stronger with time on various surfaces. 

All-Weather Double-Sided Tape 

The double-sided polyester sticky tape with high performance. This tape has a highly developed acrylic adhesive directly on the surface. Therefore, this tape is performs well under a broad range of harsh environmental conditions.

How do we install ECHOtape? 

The ECHOtape is part of the last step of our installation method for a metal building. Installer Jesus Monroy explains the installation process in detail. When using the tape for installation, it is hand torn. You place the tape vertically on the roof and horizontally for the rest of the building. Midwest Steel installers begin by laying the tape where the edges of the radiant barrier meet. First, they cover the seams on the end walls, then moving onto the roof. Lastly, they finish with the sides of the structure. Monroy states this process takes one person about 1-2 hours to complete -depending on the size of the structure. The longest part of installation is the roof due to using ladders and working the tape around the hat channels. However, Monroy insists, “The tape fulfills its purpose and is the stickiest tape my crew has worked with.” 

"ECHOtape offers phenomenal customer service and a product that gets the job done! The tape provides excellent quality grip on surfaces which in turn prevents us from having huge challenges. Their online ordering makes the process very time efficient. We can get the tape we want, when we want, and where we want!"

A-Frame Horizontal Roof

A-Frame Horizontal roofs give your structure a residential look. The sheet panels run from side to side and does not have purlins or ridge cap. The increase in price to upgrade to A-Frame Horizontal is the additional welding needed on your trusses (bows). An excellent option to keep your residential look for residential areas for a minimum upgrade costs.


A-Frame Vertical Roof

Known as the best choice for areas that experience extreme weather conditions, the vertical roof style is hands down the best choice for Michigan weather. The roof panels run from the pitch to the eaves causing heavy snows, rain, and natural elements to slide off the roof easily. In order to tie down the panels to the structure, we must add purlins or hat channels lengthwise making the structure more rigid. The finished look with special trim all around the roof and ridge cap makes this roof style the best option.
