SNAPLOCK CLADDING AUSTRALIA

WHAT IS SNAPLOCK CLADDING?

The sleek profile of Snaplock is perfectly adapted to new architectural developments. Snaplock’s simpler installation method, which resembles Standing Seam but does not require specialist gear, has become a popular alternative for installers and builders who do not have access to Standing Seam seam closure equipment. Snaplock panels are meant to “snap” together, making installation a breeze.

The Snap Lock panels have a similar appearance to standing seam panels, but the form of the lip allows them to snap together without the need for crimping.

INSTALLATION

All profiles should be placed by a qualified and experienced cladding installer, according to Cladding Walls Australia. Cladding Walls Australia offers all complimentary flashings and cappings. 

A construction-grade substrate is required for all Snaplock applications. When working with zinc, a constant ventilation gap of 20 mm beneath the substrate is required for wall cladding applications, and a 40 mm gap is required for roof installations (note, this is for zinc only). Before laying cladding panels, the substrate should be encased with a moisture-proof membrane. Each panel must be secured to the membraned substrate using approved stainless steel clips and countersunk screws.
