Snaplock Metal Cladding and Roofing

Snaplock Cladding system


Snaplock is a modern alternative to the traditional standing seam. This system reduces installation time and associated costs thanks to a quick and cost-effective installation process. Similar in appearance to Nailstrip, Snaplock offers the installer a more professional installation without the need for specialist tools – making it a popular profile for both builders and architects for roofing and walling.

Snaplock is held in position using a clip (similar to standing seam), enabling the panel to expand and contract. This allows a more diverse range of materials to be utilised and is perfect for use in extreme weather landscapes.

Product Highlights

  • Attractive modern look with multiple rib height options.
  • Minimal material maintenance.
  • Concealed fixing method.
  • Flexible install techniques available.
  • Suitable in an extensive material range.

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.
