Hi there. I am installing a 12" standing seam over a barreled roof with 50'+ runs. The architect had spec 'd a Berridge roof which I am know finding out is a 12-3/4" panel after it is run through their continuous roller. I need to maintain that 12" spacing. Do you know what the industry standard is for standing seam, is it a true 12" or more. Do you know if there is a alternate continuous roller out there similar to the berridge or are they the only ones out there. Comments appreciated. Regards Bob.

There truly is no standard, with each machine designed to work with a specific material width by thickness and meet certain performance criteria. There are some machines that are adjustable. There are a number of member manufcatures that have a similar type products and some have variable width rollformers. Try looking at our member manufacturers that offer SS and contact them. First to come to mind is Englert and Custom-Bilt.
