Versatility

The possibility of using panel lengths of up to 8 m or more, exceptional strength, and resistance to water ingress make standing seam panels perfect for covering large roof surfaces and in areas subject to weather extremes including torrential rain and even snow.

These panels can be used on any pitch from virtually horizontal (1.5°) to vertical and provide almost limitless opportunities for stunning architectural design.

Structural strength

The standing seam technique ensures the joints display exceptional water tightness and strength. Standing seam panels are generally installed installed on 15 to 18mm ply and are held in place by clips (although the Nail strip profile offers some variation to this rule) . The ply provides a great deal of torsion support and strength.

Sliding clips allow room for movement in building materials and all clips are screwed using countersunk screws into timber framing. The clips are concealed leaving a seamless appearance.

Each sheet has a 25mm to 38mm vertical lip that overlaps with the lip on the neighbouring sheet—the lips are crimped together for a superior waterproof seal. manual crimping technique ensures a tight seal and clean lines while reducing installation time.

Standing seam panels are designed for longevity. Colorbond Ultra, Aluminium, Zinc and Copper increase the natural anti-corrosion properties of standing seam panels making them a perfect solution for coastal construction and other projects subject to salt laden winds.
