Get the Fine Lines of Standing Seam Metal

The Look of Architectural Lines for Your Location

The fine architectural lines associated with metal roofing can be yours with Freedom Metals’ standing seam metal roofing panels. What is standing seam? Standing seam is a form of roofing that features a unique, interlocking mechanism.

Three Types of Standing Seam

1" Snap Lock

The 1” snap lock with nail flange standing seam system seams can be locked by a simple snapping of the panels together. This panel does not require a clip.

1″ Snap Lock Fastening Details

1½" Snap Lock

A 1½” snap lock panel offers a very pleasing visual look and is ideal for clamping snowbirds to the vertical rib without screwing through the panel.

1½” Snap Lock Fastening Details

1¾" Snap Lock

Our 1¾” snap lock is very similar to the 1½”; however, the taller rib offers a more structurally sound panel for installing in areas prone to strong winds and/or needing to span a larger purlin distance.

Be sure to use manufacturer-recommended screws and clips with every panel during installation. Upright ridges at both ends fit into one another perfectly, providing sturdiness and protection for the entire roof. Job site roll forming is also available.

Standing seam roof panels are made from thicker grades of steel than corrugated steel roofs. Many people are familiar with corrugated steel roofs, which are made using 29-gauge thickness. Standing seam consists of 26-gauge galvalume steel standing seam panels. Also, there are 28-, 26- and 24-gauge thicknesses that can be used for residential and commercial applications. With standing seam, fasteners are not seen.

The Importance of Quality Composition for Standing Seam

Because standing seam panels are preferred in architectural (requiring a roof deck) and structural (only requiring a roof frame) profiles, a mid-panel stiffening technique is sometimes employed by the sheet metal fabricators, suppliers, and manufacturers for 16-inch and wider standing seam panels. This prevents “oil canning” of the panels.

The metal coil from which standing seam panels are manufactured is usually factory painted with a high-end Kynar 500 paint finish. Ensure the quality composition of the standing seam roof you desire by contacting the experts at Freedom Metals.

Metals Used for Standing Seam Panels

Standing seam panels can be manufactured from a coated steel, bare and painted aluminum, zinc, copper, and stainless steel.
