Metalbenz fabricates an interlocking and overlapping panel, known as a ‘flat lock panel’. Other names given to this profile are ‘locked seam’, ‘shingle’ or ‘tile’. The shingle/tile like panel is at 30 – 40 mm folds around the perimeter of the panel. These folds are formed simply to interlock and overlap with each other, so that the end visual result is slim lines where the joints are located.
Each panel is installed sequentially with the lower fold of each panel interlocked with the upper fold of the panel below. The upper and side panels are attached to the roof with clips which are concealed by the next overlapping panel.
- Small tiles/shingles are useful in both heritage and contemporary buildings
- Large squares tiles that are more likely used in modern contemporary buildings
