Question Regarding Removal Of Double-locked Standing Seam Panels


Hey Fellas,
We have done a fair amount of standing seam, but I have never had to remove a double-locked standing seam system. Got plenty of ideas, but want feedback on what tools and techniques remove the panels, clips and fasteners most efficiently. Any input is appreciated. All sarcasm must be well put and should meet or exceed 2011 North American humor standards for job site ridicule.

Thanks,
Dave

To what end? Taking it all off or looking to repair/replace/modify?

There is an automatic cutter similar to the seamer. Try ESE machines.

Low tech, sawzall.

I'm assuming this is for repair. We typically use a sawzall and cut through the seam on both sides if replacing one panel. Straighten the cut and hand fold a male lock on both remaining panels. Fabricate a replacement panel with female locks on both sides. Drop in place and close the seams.
