Product Specifications 

  • Patented 21-gauge clip engages two ribs.

  • Excellent spanning capabilities.

  • 16” net coverage.

Features / Benefits 

  • Klip-Rib® has been tested in accordance with UL580 and meets UL Class 90 wind uplift requirements.
  • Tested in accordance with ASTM E1592 for wind uplift capacity.
  • Has been tested for air infiltration per ASTM E1680, and water infiltration per ASTM E1646.
  • Panel assemblies are Class A Fire Rated when installed on non-combustible deck or framing per IBC or IRC.   Panel assemblies are also Class A Fire Rated per UL790 when installed in accordance to UL listings.  Refer to UL Listings & Specifications for information.
  • Can be installed over solid substrates or spaced support members.
  • Integral ribs have the bold appearance of a batten, but without separate snap-on battens. Preferred for high visibility applications with less likelihood of oil canning than panels with wide flat areas.
  • Klip-Rib's locking seam reduces field labor by eliminating field seaming.
  • Its patented 21-gauge clip engages two ribs and allows panels to be disengaged if needed.
  • Recommended minimum slope of 1:12.
  • Panels are stiff enough to be shipped without wooden crates. The stretch wrap packaging protects the panels from water and dirt and reduces job site waste.
  • Klip-Rib® can be crimp curved for radiused applications.
  • Available in 24 and 22 gauge in a wide variety of standard colors in the DuraTech®5000 and DuraTech®mx (polyvinylidene fluoride) coating systems, including ZACtique®II or bare Zincalume® or Galvalume® Plus.
  • Manufactured in Tacoma, WA.
  • Weathertight warranty available. Minimum slope of 1:12 required. Contact AEP Span representative for more information. (Roof application ONLY)
  • Oil Canning: All flat metal surfaces can display waviness commonly referred to
    as “oil canning”. “Oil canning” is an inherent characteristic of steel products, not a
    defect, and therefore is not a cause for panel rejection.
