Accel Roofing Products, a division of ATAS International Inc., has introduced Colonial Seam, a standing seam metal roofing panel.
Colonial Seam is a clipless panel that offers a standing seam aesthetic with factory formed advantages. It is installed by locking the one-piece panel into the previous panel and fastening through pre-punched slots, allowing for expansion and contraction. All fasteners are concealed by the adjacent panel. The positive locking action makes it virtually impossible for the panels to slide apart.
Panels are available in widths of 12-3/8-inches and 16-3/8-inches, with a 1-inch seam height, in .032 aluminum and 24 gauge metallic coated steel. Both substrates have the same PVDF paint finish in a variety of colors. Colonial Seam can be installed on any solid surface with a minimum slope of 3:12.
Colonial Seam is a solution to metal roofing for both new construction and re-roofing. The standing seam panel offers an alternative to other roofing materials. It provides the benefits of metal roofing with ease of installation, since this is a one-piece panel that does not require the use of clips.
Lower energy consumption and reduction in energy bills can be achieved by the use of Colonial Seam. Depending upon several factors, including the panel color chosen, the slope of the roof, and the location of the building, up to 70 percent of the sun’s energy may be reflected away from the home, minimizing heat retention and keeping the home cooler.
