The key benefits of Standing Seam Metal Cladding and Roofing

Posted inOur News

Standing Seam metal cladding and roofing manufactured and supplied by Architectural Cladding Suppliers has a modern and seamless design element to offer something exceptional for your next project.

Standing Seam is a simple-looking metal cladding and roofing profile. One of the most versatile cladding systems available, Standing Seam can be installed across numerous applications, from roofing to façades, soffits, and even on internal walls as an architectural feature finish. This is achieved through our expertise in forming individual panels into tapered, flat, curved, concave, or convex shapes to perfectly suit the application.

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. Stop ends and/or hooks to each panel are also recommended, along with the appropriate clips to fix the Standing Seam panels into place. A dedicated seam closing tool must be used to close each rib and complete the installation. If you are unsure, please contact us prior to ordering.

Standing Seam metal cladding and roofing can achieve seamless roof-to-wall details, modern concealed gutters, and a modern architectural finish for your next project.

The key benefits of Standing Seam metal cladding and roofing include:

  • Attractive modern and seamless aesthetic with multiple panel height options: 25mm, 38mm, and 50mm. The 50mm option has clip relief in the pan of the panel.
  • All of our cladding coil material is deemed non-combustible by their respective manufacturers, making our Standing Seam panel suitable for use in fire/BAL rated applications in conjunction with a suitable wall/roof build-up. 
  • Minimal material maintenance, providing peace of mind for the installer, builder, and end-user client.
  • Versatile design and installation options are available for Standing Seam – with the ability to be manufactured in various width combinations for installers.
  • Using the 205mm cover width option helps reduce the chance of oil canning. The cover widths can be customised, if required, up to 530mm.
  • Standing Seam allows for material expansion and contraction – delivering a high-quality long-term cladding solution.
