SHINGLES AND FLATLOCK

Shingles and Flatlock Metal Cladding share a similar profile design, however once installed two distinct cladding products are provided.

The variations in shingle style, size, and finish gives an infinite amount of options available to the specifier. Panels are folded into interconnecting tile shapes, often creating scale or diamond patterns, known as shingles. The thickness varies with the material but generally ranges from 0.5mm to 1.0mm. Shingle and Flatlock Metal Cladding is normally installed to a ventilated plywood substrate, however other substrates can be considered. A standard range of details are available, along with technical assistance on a project by project basis.

Shingles and Flatlock Metal Cladding can be manufactured using Steel, Galvanised Steel, Aluminium, Brass, Copper, Stainless Steel, Zinc, and Weathering Steel. For the best results, we recommend shingles and flatlock metal cladding be installed by experienced cladding professionals.

Technical Support & Installation

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.

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.

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.

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.
