Nail Strip

Architectural Cladding

Introducing the Architectural Cladding range, with four contemporary profiles; Standing Seam, Interlock, Snap Lock & Nail Strip to choose from. They can be manufactured in an enormous range of materials and finishes, the external and internal cladding possibilities are endless for your next building development. Colorspan Industries are able to manufacture your Architectural Cladding profiles in a range of materials including Zincalume®, Colorbond®, Aluminium, Stainless Steel, Copper, Cor-ten and VM Zinc.

Nail Strip

Colorspan Industries’ Nail Strip cladding system, like the Standing Seam and Snap Lock profiles has a wide recessed pan with a raised seam of either 25mm or 38mm in height. The overall effect of a structure covered by this cladding is a series continuous flowing thick bands neatly framed by thin ribs that lends to a range of effects through a combination of light, shadows, the material used and finish to produce a dynamic visual impact.

Rather than use concealed clips to fix the cladding panels to the substrate or the additional process of crimping, the Nail Strip profile incorporates a perforated fixing strip along one side in which the fastening screws are directly fixed at 300 mm centres. The high seam rib of the subsequent panel is then positioned over the low seam rib and snapped into place along its length. This is the fastest metal cladding system for large scale or time poor applications.

Installation of the Nail Strip cladding system is restricted to vertical aligned wall and roofing applications. Like Standing Seam and Snap Lock, Nail Strip requires a firm and continuous support (usually plywood) that is ventilated from the load bearing structure to which it is fixed.

Nail Strip cladding systems are less preferred for use in areas with high wind loads unless more fixing points are applied to handle the uplift pressures. Nail Strip lightweight cladding systems are ideal for residential, commercial and industrial applications.
