MCA Publishes Best Practices Guide for Clip-Attached Style Standing Seam Roof Systems

The Metal Construction Association (MCA) has published a best practices guide for standing seam roof clips. The guide can be downloaded here.

Most standing seam panel installations require specific fastening techniques to allow for thermal expansion and contraction while also safeguarding against attachment fatigue. This guide focuses on clip-attached style standing seam roof systems, addressing details and concerns for proper selection and use of the connection that anchors the roof panel to roof panel support elements.

“This guide goes beyond what is typically provided by manufacturers,” says Karl Hielscher, MCA executive director. “Proper attachment is key to the performance of metal roofing. Our aim is to provide information to those who are in specification and installation roles to optimize performance of the metal roofs on their projects.”

The “Standing Seam Roof Clips Best Practices Guide” is among more than 50 technical resources for download on the MCA website covering a range of metal construction applications.
