Standing Seam - Zinc
Standing Seam is a timeless cladding profile that complements contemporary architecture; Zinc creates freedom of expression in the design process.
Standing Seam is a timeless cladding profile; it is a 200-year-old system now being used to complement contemporary architecture. Standing Seam is installed onto plywood for support with a continuous 20mm ventilation airspace behind the plywood and can be installed vertically and horizontally. It is also possible for it to be curved and tapered in both orientations. It is a cost-effective profile with a material selection for every budget.
Suitable for both roof and wall cladding, it creates structured lines and utilises a concealed fixing system. Standing Seam also produces neat corner details with no need for flashings.
Some of its advantages include:
- High-end architectural appearance with no visible fixings
- Minimal maintenance
- Low risk water seepage
- High wind loading capacity
- Allows for expansion and contraction of materials
Zinc is a great material for both the environment and the longevity of a building. It is very malleable, meeting basically every
architectural demand and has been used by architects for over 160 years. Zinc provides solutions that less flexible materials cannot,
creating freedom of expression in designing the roof and cladding of a building. Due to its flexibility, Zinc allows for interesting
corners and angles in a variety of shapes. In terms of its environmental impact, Zinc is non-toxic, durable, 100% recyclable and requires
less energy to make than any other material.
