Our vertical standing seam Huggers are manufactured to fit this very popular panel type used on many metal buildings built from the late 1960’s to current day. The vertical rib SSR Hugger is manufactured to fit any vertical rib standing seam regardless of the rib spacing and will accommodate the old Armco buildings as well as a host of other current and long past manufacturers. The standard height of 2-1/2” mentioned above, accommodates up to 2” tall ribs, but can be increased to suit your specific application.

The product can also satisfy roofs with stand-off panel clips that hold the existing roof 1” above the existing purlins or when compressible material is installed under the existing roof. In this condition a special anti-rotation arm is included that attaches the Hugger to the side of the existing rib, to minimize any potential roll. This product requires special anchorage fasteners that are designed to secure the Huggers with the 1” offset above the existing purlin plus a fastener to secure the arm.
