The key benefits of Nailstrip Metal Cladding

Posted inOur News

Nailstrip is the no-fuss, simple and cost-effective cladding system.

Nailstrip continues to impress due to its versatility, easy installation, and striking appearance. If you’re looking for a low-maintenance and durable metal cladding and roofing profile, look no further than Nailstrip.

The key benefits of Nailstrip include:

  • Nailstrip panels are designed to “snap” together, offering a straight-forward and simple installation method.
  • There are no specialist tools, mechanical seam locking, or clips needed.
  • Using the 165mm and 265mm pan width options helps reduce the chance of any oil canning. The pan widths can be customised if required.
  • Nailstrip allows for material expansion and contraction – delivering a high-quality long term cladding and roofing solution.
  • Low level of maintenance after installation – providing peace of mind for both the installer, builder and end-user client.
  • Nailstrip removes the added complexity of exact measurement and spacing as a small amount of colorbond flashings are required.
  • Nailstrip is available in 25mm and 38mm panel heights providing greater flexibility for your next project.
  • Installers have the freedom to combine fixed panel widths or random patterns within the same facade to deliver a showpiece result.
  • Nailstrip is suitable for both commercial and residential projects providing a striking architectural finish.

Nailstrip is a great choice for roofing and wall cladding applications for residential and commercial projects.

Nailstrip is available in 25mm and 38mm panel heights and a range of different panel lengths, depending on material selection. Whatever the application there will be no visible clips or fixings – providing a striking architectural aesthetic.

Nailstrip can be manufactured using a diverse range of metals available – including:

  • COLORBOND® Steel
  • Galvabond
  • Zincalume
  • Galvanised Steel

Simple installation is the key to success with Nailstrip.

You can achieve a striking architectural finish without needing advanced technical know-how with Nailstrip. The profile can be secured directly over plywood or may be used to span over timber or steel battens. Easy to install using screws and then snapping the joining panels together – with no specialist tools, mechanical seam locking, or clips needed.

Being a simple and no-fuss profile, we are able to fabricate as per your specific job requirements. We aim to provide you with a beautiful-looking, high-quality Nailstrip profile in the most cost-effective way, minimising waste at every step.
