The preparation of a detailed specification is the responsibility of the design authority. For more information about this product or system, consult the manufacturer.


The AR5150 Snap Lock panel is formed with an on-site / in-shop continuous metal roofing panel roll forming machine (Schlebach Quadro Plus). This machine produces a Snap-lock panel with a seam height of 38 mm (1-1/2") and profiles can vary from 200 mm (8") wide up to 500 mm (20") wide. This machine also produces a Nail-strip panel and a mechanically seamed panel.

On-site roll forming provides for the elimination of end laps with continuous panel forming capabilities in lengths up to nominal 46 m (150').
