Standing Seam Roofs
This traditional technique is distinguished by its linear rhythm; the standing seam gives it a particularly clear finish.
Assembled on site from stainless steel strips, these roofs are suited to both contemporary and traditional architecture.
The stainless steel strips are joined along their length by crimping of the previously raised edges. The bending or closing of the profile is performed in the traditional manner or using specialist tools.
The limited number of transverse seams and welds ensures maximum weathertightness. Standing seams can be used on warm or cold roofing systems.
- Ideal for large flat surfaces that require the use of long strips.
- Cost reduction by the use of longer pieces and low weight per m2.
- Not fragile and no risk of fracturing at low temperatures.
- Immaculate aesthetics.
- Ideal technique for curved surfaces and complex shapes (domes, cones, etc.).
Capacities relating to entirely roofing coverage types
The use of stainless steel enables the use of 14 to 30 metres lengths of strip – dependent upon national regulations – in thicknesses between 0.4 mm and 0.5 mm.
The widths installed depend on the project location (sheltered, normal or exposed) and on each country’s wind zones.
