Standing Seam - How does it work?
Snap-lock profiles consist of panels that have been carefully roll-formed with specifically shaped edges, a male and female leg, that snap together and do not require hand or mechanical seaming during installation. Snap-lock profiles are attached using a clip that attaches to the seam and fastens underneath the panel.
1" MECHANICAL LOCK
Mechanically seamed panels are also roll-formed with specific edges that line up with each other. Once the two panels are engaged, a hand or mechanical seamer is used to bend the edges and lock the panels together.
Standing Seam Machine
In addition to producing standing seam at our plant, we have this trailer-mounted machine which can produce the standing seam you need right at the job site. It can be less expensive to send the steel coils to the job instead of shipping the finished product, and the risk of damage is lower as well.
