Iconic Cladding are specialists in European style tray roofing and wall cladding, which is installed with hidden clips (secret fixed) for greater durability. Flashings are generally clipped with minimal visible fixings for an improved aesthetic appearance. Tray roofing is a heritage product which has undergone a renaissance in modern architecture, often known as standing seam or angle seam and is reliant upon skilled installation. Traditional angle seam requires a solid backing material/sarking (for example ply) as the trays have no ribs or swaging to stiffen them. Oil canning is a feature of such products.
Traditional tray is best installed using softer metals such as Zinc, copper and aluminium, even lead, all of which gain their own patina & texture through canning over time. There are pre-treated metals such as coated zinc (VM Zinc) and coated aluminium (Prefa.com). A wide range of other colours and finishes are available through the Colorsteel and Colorcote ranges.
