Architectural Cladding >> Standing Seam
The Standing Seam cladding system is one of the most versatile cladding systems available. It is suitable for both roofs and facades, making it an ideal choice for challenging projects. The Standing Seam system is the most adaptable cladding profile lending itself to flat, curved, concave, convex, conical and domed applications. It inspires creative freedom, allowing architects and designers to share and explore relationships with surrounding landscape and transcend the local environment.

In all architectural projects it’s a combination of both form and function and we choose between what we show and what we hide. The Standing Seam cladding system not only catches the eye but it’s subtle play of shadows and response to light can reflect the mood and ambience of the building envelope.

The streamline low height of the seams (25mm and 38mm) contributes to its architectural design and offers flexibility when working on more complex designs and structures. With a taut and regular appearance it is particularly suitable for very large cladding surfaces and for structures located in regions of harsh climate, which are often subject to coastal spray, snowfall, strong winds, and heavy rain.

Standing Seam Cladding


The Standing Seam system requires two panel seams (male and female) to lap each other. It is laid on a continuous decking, each panel is secured with concealed clips spaced approximately 300mm apart (sliding and fixed clips are used for expansion and contraction reasons - see installation manual.) Each panel is crimped securely together with the use of special tools.

Standing Seam Cladding is one of the easiest systems to use when challenged with multiple windows, doors and complex shapes. The detailed arrangements required to integrate from flashing to panel is made all the more easy by choosing the Standing Seam system. This integration needs to be seamless otherwise it can detract from the entire project aesthetic.

Standing Seam panels are rolled formed and can be adjusted to suit between windows and door ways. The unique ability unlike other conventional cladding profiles whereby altering the pan width (large or smaller) to suit project needs.

The Standing Seam Cladding range is available in most finishes, VM Zinc, Colorbond, Aluminium, Copper and Corten offering greater design flexibility.
