Nailstrip Metal Cladding

nailstrip panel system


Nailstrip offers a cost-effective solution to the raised vertical seam metal cladding offering. Nailstrip is simple to install using a continuous fixing strip that requires no clips or mechanical seam closing.  It is an ideal choice for owner builders, cladding beginners or those wanting a no-fuss alternative with an architectural finish to be envied.

Nailstrip panels can be laid vertically and horizontally, in fixed widths, or random patterns. This versatile metal cladding panel continues to impress due to its striking, yet cost-effective installation.

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.


Architectural Cladding Suppliers 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.
