STANDING SEAM APPLICATIONS
Standing Seam is perfectly at home in any roof or wall cladding application.
Strength is not the only quality of Standing Seam; playfulness and creativity feature at the forefront of any Standing Seam design project.
Play with a vertical, horizontal or even diagonal rib alignment to create contrasting planes and angles. Experiment with customising the pan widths or using Standing Seam in curved configurations.
Standing Seam’s strong linear expression is also perfect for creating powerful aesthetic connections with other structural features including stone, timber, and glass.
Standing Seam is suitable for all pitches from vertical down to a minimum pitch of 3°. Long run panels up to 8 metres or longer (depending on site design) open up more options for creating powerful architectural designs.
You can further customise Standing Seam with a variety of material types and colours including Colorbond, Zincalume, zinc, copper, aluminium, and Corten options.
Add in the additional vibrant colour possibilities available in the Colorbond colour range and you’ll begin to appreciate the special qualities Standing Seam can bring to your next project.
Standard rib heights and pan widths include:
25mm x 330mm
25mm x 530mm
38mm x 300mm

The Classic Colorbond colour range is perfect for that more traditional look for either residential or commercial applications.
The Colorbond contemporary range brings a more youthful, exuberant range of colours-- perfect for residential and commercial projects.
STANDING SEAM INSTALLATION
Standing Seam 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.
Standing Seam requires a continuous rigid substrate such as plywood. The recommended substrate is 15mm plywood for wall cladding and 18mm for roofing. Ventilation is also required to prevent condensation formation.
Fasten Standing Seam panels directly to the plywood substrate using countersunk screws through the concealed clips at 600mm centres.
Either fixed or sliding clips are suitable with the sliding clips providing for excessive thermal expansion or contraction of panels.
Accurate alignment of sheets and clips is essential to safeguard against any possible tension issues especially under the stress of thermal contraction and expansion.
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
Standing Seam provides a choice of single or double seams—the double seam is a requirement for extra high wind loadings.
Make sure you 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 MAINTENANCE
Standing Seam has built a long-standing reputation as a superior low-maintenance cladding product that offers industry-leading durability.
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 screw clip fastening system offers exceptional weathering protection for Standing Seam as well as reducing maintenance requirements.
However, all steel 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 minimises any maintenance challenges you may face.
