The Future of Standing Seam With Vitrabond Cladding


Standing Seam cladding but not as you know it

Award-winning and innovative architects, Bates Smart, recently broke with tradition for the finish on The Monarch project in Sydney’s trendy Mosman suburb. The façade was to feature a standing seam cladding design but instead of using metal or aluminium sheets to achieve this popular architectural feature, Bates Smart chose to use Vitrabond FR aluminium composite panels to achieve the same look, feel and sturdiness but with the additional benefits that this product brings to a project.

These benefits include being easier to install. This is a general benefit of aluminium composite panels but it was equally the case for this project as the long vertical ribs that form the classic standing seam system were made separately and then installed between each panel using the standard cassette fix system that is extremely installer-friendly. Having the ribs produced separately from the panels can also give architects the flexibility to design their standing seam with multiple colours for an individualised look and something that is not possible with old-school standing seam.

Vitrabond is also well-known in the industry for being a cost-effective cladding solution and when used as a standing seam is no different. It also has the benefit of fully representing the results whilst retaining the same performance attributes of standing seam cladding such being fully waterproofed and weatherproofed; requiring minimum maintenance; as well as being lightweight, flexible and versatile. Vitrabond comes with the added benefit that it will not rust.

Vitrabond standing seam cladding adds a standout feature to what is widely considered to be the first ‘Soho’ style accommodation in Sydney’s lower north shore. This development comprises of 62 apartments as well as four Soho units displaying the unique Vitrabond FR standing seam design.
