Standing seam roofing by Kalzip®

Traditional standing seam roof system

made of Kalzip Foldable Aluminium


Kalzip Foldable Aluminium is the ideal material for processing in traditional plumbing technology. Almost any shape for the roof and facade can be implemented. Folding, edging and drawing – the surfaces are processed quickly and precisely using conventional tools.

The advantages of a standing seam roof:

  • Freedom of design through almost unrestricted formability
  • Slopes from 3- 90 degrees
  • Convincing value for money
  • Planning, construction time and cost certainty thanks to simple processing of the material, even at low temperatures without heating
  • Highly corrosion and value-resistant for long-term building protection
  • Comfortable workmanship in traditional, well-known roofing technology

The perfect roof structure for almost any shape

The advantages of a standing seam roof:

  • A 100 kg roll of FalZinc 600 mm construction width has around 88 lm, compared to 33 lm for zinc
  • In most constructions, a structured separation layer on solid wood formwork is not required
  • Variety through surface variants FalZinc, Dark FalZinc, TitanSilver, Bronze B 40, UltraDark and FalzColor
  • Freedom of design through almost unrestricted formability

Applications of the standing seam roof:
