Snap Lock

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.

Snap Lock

Colorspan Industries’ Snap Lock cladding system is similar in appearance to the Standing Seam profile but differs in that the panels snap into each other to form a locking joint rather than requiring crimping. The obvious difference and advantage being faster installation times making it an economical cladding system for large scale or time poor applications.

Like the Standing Seam profile, Snap Lock comprises 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.

Installation of the Snap Lock cladding also requires a firm and continuous support (usually plywood) that is ventilated from the load bearing structure to which it is fixed. The Snap Lock cladding sections are fixed using steel clips at 300mm maximum centres which are fixed to the plywood. The profile incorporates a male and female rib which work together snap locking into each other to create a strong sealed joint which is ideal for buildings exposed to severe weather applications such as strong winds, heavy rain, coastal spray and snowfall.

Snap Lock panel pan width can be increased or decreased to suit between windows and door ways so that the ribs finish neatly along frames or shut lines. Snap Lock is also known in industry as ‘Ribbon Tray’ or ‘Astro Snap’ lightweight cladding systems ideal for residential, commercial and industrial applications.
