Because of the narrow gauge of metal used to create shingles, they have a distinct appearance, and the flatness and reflectivity of the material should be considered while specifying. Eye-catching, statement-making profile, m ultiple laying and folding patterns, screw and clip concealment and a flat profile with easy installation are some of the features shingles hold.

About Shingles

All profiles should be placed by a skilled and experienced cladding installer.
A construction-grade base is required for all Shingle applications. When working with zinc, a constant ventilation gap of 20 mm beneath the substrate is required for wall cladding applications, and a 40 mm gap is required for roof installations (note this is for zinc only). Before laying cladding panels, the substrate should be encased with a moisture-proof membrane. Shingles should be repaired with approved countersunk screws.


An inspection is required by a Total Roofing and Cladding team member to check for installation suitability. There may be limitations on your project. On some projects, shingles may not be suitable, some reasons may be the roof pitch or facade size. If used as roof cladding, the roof pitch must be at least 25o. Panel widths and lengths can be varied depending on the material.  


  • Fixing centres up to 600mm
  • 15 mm construction grade substructure Metal Cladding Systems can help with fire rated/BAL applications. It will be necessary to use a fire-resistant substrate to achieve these results
  • 15 mm construction grade substructure for roof cladding  
  • Standard shingle sizes range from 140 mm to 340 mm, with bespoke sizes available upon request
  • The panels are arranged in a diagonal pattern: Approved clips and countersunk screws are used to conceal the fixing
  • 15 mm construction grade substructure for wall cladding
  • 17 mm construction grade substructure for roof cladding

Sizes are adjusted to make the most of the unique material properties.
The shingles have a 22mm 180 degree folded hem on all four sides, two reverse-side and two face-side, and are totally interlocking on all four sides.
The shingles are held in place via hidden fasteners and clips; they are “completely supported” due to the thin gauges of materials utilized and the absence of inherent spanning capability.
They are available in both left-to-right and right-to-left installation sequences. Contact Total Roofing and Cladding for custom sizing or further questions.
