Tuff Rib Panels:
The Perfect Blend of Strength and Versatility
At Watson Metals, we're proud to offer Tuff Rib panels, a top choice in the residential and agricultural markets for metal siding and roofing. Known by various names such as Classic Rib, Ag-Panel, and D-Rib, these panels are renowned for their durability and affordability.
One of the standout features of our Tuff Rib panels is the integrated anti-siphon groove on the panel laps. This allows for installation on roofs with a slope as low as 2.5:12. The panels' strong 3/4" trapezoidal ribs enable installation over both solid deck and open frame applications, demonstrating the versatility of Tuff Rib panels.

While Tuff Rib panels are commonly used in residential applications, they also perform well as a light commercial panel. Whether you're building a home, a barn, or a commercial building, our Tuff Rib panels can meet your needs.
