5-Rib Panels

The Metal Shop 5-Rib Panels

5 Rib Panel is a modern metal roofing profile suitable for almost flat roofing applications. It is a flexible product with great water-carrying characteristics that may be used as siding or roofing. It also goes by other names such as Classic Rib, Tuff-Rib, or Ag Panel. It is equipped with an anti-siphon groove, a bend in the underlap rib of the metal panel that stops water from siphoning up and around the rib, prohibiting leakage.
