Structural Panel Systems

Standing Seam System

Lifetime Series 2000 1 ¾” High Structural & Architectural Snap Lock Standing Seam.

One of Lifetime’s most popular systems, the Series 2000 integral snap-lock panel system combines architectural versatility—for cleanly detailed, continuous seam transitions from roof to mansard, fascia, wall panel or soffit—with the dramatically increased spanning and uplift capabilities of a structural system.

The panel design secures the male interlock hem into the female leg continuously, lending structural characteristics to apply it over purlins. The panel is secured to the purlins or substrate by clips allowing for unrestricted thermal movement; all fasteners are concealed; the clip design provides for a 1/4” clearance between the flat surface of the panel and the substrate, allowing ventilation underneath. Optional sealant assures greater water-tightness. Installation is a snap; no labor intense mechanical seaming: just secure the male leg with clips and snap the panels in place.
