I was told years ago that Trakpipe was capable, but not rated for outdoor useage.. Some question about the coating being susceptible to UV. Call your plumbing inspector. The other one I am not aware of.

*Who* would want to use it outdoors anyways. Think of the safety issues!

Hmm;
Do you mean saftey as in flexable gas connectors? It seems to me, that flexable gas connectors are also made of stainless steel with a plastic rubber coating. The only difference is the connection.
On a roof installation, penitrating the roof seems just easier and safer considering all the fittings needed to go from a flexible line to iron then back to flexible again and to iron again. i.e. flexible Trakpipe through the interior unitl you reach the area where you exit on to the roof. Brass fitting to iron, exit with iron on to the roof. Then you switch back to a flexible gas connetor [24"] to iron piping again to the enteror of the unit.
It seems like less fittings is better for a chance to leak.
I haven't browsed through the code yet, just wondered if anyone else has?
