Description: Standing seam roofing is composed of preformed or field formed pans, usually between 14 to 18 inches wide when finished. The recommended dimensions should be specified from the table below. These pans run parallel to the slope of the roof, and are joined to adjacent pans with double locked standing seams. Fixed copper cleats, spaced 12″ apart and locked into these seams, secure the roofing to the deck. This method limits slippage between pans, and is recommended for use with pans up to 10′ long.

Field forming involves the use of copper in flat sheets or rolls which are formed into pans by power panformers. Long rafter-length pans can be made, eliminating the need for transverse seams, however eave and ridge details must allow for copper expansion and contraction characteristics. See Roofing Systems – Long Pan, for additional information.
