Standing seam is one of the most recognisable systems for metal cladding, used in various buildings around Australia and globally. It offers a traditional and refined look, and the flexibility of the system allows it to achieve intricate designs that wouldn’t be possible with another system.
Standing seam wall cladding is a classic style with defined lines and wide flat panels. The joints and fastenings are all hidden within the seams. By specifying a standing seam profile devoid of visible fixings, the cladding creates a clean, architectural finish and offers enhanced strength, as well as improved wind, water and heat resistance. Standing seam also delivers enhanced shadow lines and affords clean corners without the need for flashings or cover plates. This system also allows for the natural expansion and contraction of the building.
Standing seam is used for both roof and wall cladding, and creates a dramatic and architectural look for any façade. It is popular for large projects, as it’s incredibly versatile and utilises long strips that are assembled with overlapping folds.
Variety of Finishes
Standing seam cladding is exceptionally flexible, with standard rib heights ranging from 25mm to 38mm, and lengths of up to 9,000mm. All materials can be easily customised to suit your project and architectural vision.
This cladding system can be created in a range of materials, with standing seam folded in aluminium, copper, steel, stainless steel, galvanised steel, titanium zinc and weathering steel.
The standing seam profile can be fabricated from a range of different metal materials.
