Standing seam roof & cladding system

The SpeedZip® standing seam roofing system is a ‘Zip Up’ roofing solution involving mechanically seaming a profiled side lap over a halter support system. Standing seam built up systems have been used throughout the construction industry for many decades providing a continuous weathertight roof with no end laps, and no exposed pierce fixings, thereby creating a roof or façade system offering outstanding performance, aesthetics and limitless design solutions.


Built up roofing and cladding systems have been used extensively throughout the industry for many decades offering a bespoke, lightweight, high-quality acoustic and quick to install roofing and cladding solution to commercial, industrial, educational, PFI, MOD, Prison Service, and agricultural construction market sectors.

Bespoke systems can be tailored to each project performance design brief for new build or refurbishment projects from:

  • Single skin solutions for cold roof or flat to pitch over roofing refurbishment systems
  • Complex acoustic reverberation or sound attenuation design requirements for leisure or school roofing & cladding systems
  • Flexible and creative roof shapes from barrel vaulted, waveform, tapered, or ‘hockey stick’ shapes
  • Prison Service Schemes where additional security mesh and plywood layers can be introduced
  • All systems with U Values as low as 0.05 W/m2K and a range of differing materials and finishes

Throughout history, the building industry has taken on a myriad of shapes, styles and textures. Whether in response to emerging technologies, new approaches, anticipation of future trends or a respectful take on the past, architecture is a living reminder of how our urban environment has evolved and continues to evolve year on year. Architecture today needs to deliver on so much, from meeting standards and environmental ratings to maximising value and achieving uniqueness.

At System Buildings Products, we understand this, and by combining our expertise and your project needs, we will deliver the systems and results you expect.
