5V-Crimp is a low profile metal roofing panel with wide flats between ribs, giving it a look similar to our standing seam, but in a less expensive exposed fastener version.

Somewhat more expensive than our most popular Tuff-Rib panel, our 2' wide 5V-Crimp is still quite reasonable in costs.

Because of its low profile 1/2" ribs, 5V-Crimp lends itself well to curved roofs. While it has limitations, 5V-Crimp can often be used on these type of roofs, but be sure to check before ordering to see if it will work.
