What is a standing seam metal profile? The panel profile refers to the shape and how the panels are seamed together. St. Catharines' roofing contractors will help you decide which profile is best for your building. The decision is influenced by factors such as the roof type and pitch, architectural features, surroundings and weather conditions. When it comes to a standing seam metal roof, there are three main types of roofing profiles: Snap lock, mechanical lock and nail strip.
There are a few types of snap lock profiles, but they all have one thing in common; the metal roofing panels snap together on one side. Our metal roof installers secure the panels to the plywood deck using a clip that locks underneath the panel. We use float clips when the panels are longer than 40 feet, which allows the metal panels to freely expand and contract. When using a snap-lock or click-lock standing seam profile, no manual or mechanical seaming is required.
Mechanical lock profiles are classified into two types: single lock (90-degree seam) and double lock (180-degree seam). Both profiles are roll-formed with aligned edges. The metal panels can be locked in place manually or mechanically. Regardless of the method used, the edges are bent and the two panels are joined together. Mechanical seamed panels have a hidden clipping system which makes it have great wind load capacity.
Nail strip, also known as nail flange or fastener flange, is a type of metal standing seam profile. Nail strips create long, clean roof lines because they are made of flat panels with raised ribs. In contrast to a snap lock panel, which is clipped to the roof deck, the nail strip is attached to the deck directly through the male leg. Once the panel is secure, the female leg snaps over, concealing the fasteners. This system eliminates the need for retainer clips while also concealing the fasteners.
