Genesis™ metal cladding panels provide a simple rapid install solution for all cladding applications. You can expect to save significant amounts of time and money on installation costs with Standing Seam.

Genesis™ Standing Seam requires a continuous rigid substrate such as plywood. The recommended minimum plywood thickness is 15mm plywood for wall cladding and 18mm for roofing. Ventilation is also required to prevent condensation formation.

Fasten Genesis™ Standing Seam panels directly to the plywood substrate using countersunk screws through the concealed clips at 600mm centres.

Both fixed and sliding clips are suitable with the sliding clips providing for excessive thermal expansion or contraction of panels.

The female rib simply slots into place over the male rib of the adjoining sheet to conceal the screw clips. The seal is quickly completed using hand crimping tools or with a crimping machine for an extremely effective watertight seal.


Genesis™ Standing Seam provides a choice of single or double lock standing seam — the double lock standing seam is a requirement for extra high wind loadings.

Make sure you follow the full instructions within the installation process guide and only use the appropriate fasteners for the specific application and ensure that all adjacent materials are compatible.

The experienced team at No1 can offer you guidance and advice with regards to this and all applications across the range of No1 Architectural Panels.


Standing seam panel cladding and roofing


Genesis™ metal cladding has built a long-standing reputation as a superior low-maintenance cladding product that offers industry-leading durability.

Genesis™ Standing Seam's strongly defined rib lines channel heavy rain efficiently and at the same time washing away most dirt and debris.

The old style fixing screws used to be vulnerable to dirt build-up and corrosion issues. The clever concealed steel clips fastening system offers exceptional weathering protection for Genesis™ Standing Seam as well as reducing maintenance requirements.

However, all metal cladding will benefit from some maintenance to ensure you get the best performance. The removal of all leaf matter, dirt and other organic material build-up on an annual or biannual schedule is essential for the optimal lifespan of any cladding. If the building is surrounded by trees you may need to repeat this operation even more frequently.

Leaf matter and dirt can block guttering and cause water to back up and enter into roof or wall cavities. Dirt and organic material also significantly increase the rate of corrosion and can potentially damage the paint finish.

That's why a regular maintenance programme is advisable but Standing Seam cladding minimises any maintenance challenges you may face.
