Interlocking Metal Cladding

Interlocking metal cladding


Interlocking / V25 is a contemporary metal cladding profile that has a fresh and simple design element. Used predominantly in-wall and soffit cladding applications, panels can be installed horizontally, vertically, or even diagonally to add a dramatic, sophisticated look to any building façade.

Interlocking/V25 panel is lightweight and can be installed either internally or externally. This provides architects and designers with multiple design possibilities. The panel can be laid directly onto a multitude of sub-structure variations, from top hats, plywood even metal trapezoidal sheeting. This system has the flexibility to be used on residential and commercial projects due to its simplistic and sleek appearance.  With the ability to be manufactured in various face and joint width combinations, the Interlocking/V25 panel provides a striking and modern element to any project.

Technical Support

Architectural Cladding Suppliers are here to help you. We can manufacture and provide everything that is required to complete your project from our cladding profiles to all the associated accessories and flashings via our sister company, PPC Flashings. For further information or support with flashings please contact the PPC Flashings team.

As every architectural project is different, if you require custom advice, we can discuss your project specifications and will work with you to fabricate to your individual requirements. For any further technical support please contact Architectural Cladding Suppliers.


We cannot guarantee that your metal panels will not experience the effects of what is commonly referred to as oil canning. Oil canning can occur on all types of metal and is not considered a panel defect. For more information please refer to our article on oil canning.

ACS recommends installing a “breathable vapour” membrane to act as a second line of defence to stop any water ingress as well as allowing the building to “breathe”. Any flashings required can be sourced from PPC Flashings.

Stop ends and/or hooks to each panel are highly recommended by Architectural Cladding Suppliers. If you are unsure, please contact us prior to ordering.

Do not continue if the installation does not seem right, contact Architectural Cladding Suppliers.
