What Is Standing Seam Used For?

Standing seam panels are weathering steel and watertight sealing made by a succession of machine sealed vertical lips and can be used for roofing and wall cladding. Standing seam panels are strong and suited for many uses, including cladding that is vertical or almost horizontal. To accommodate a wide range of applications, standing seam panels are available in three basic styles: standing seam, snap lock and nail strip. Standing seam panels are long-lasting, low maintenance and can be used in a variety of applications, including vertical and near-horizontal cladding.
