Default metal adhesives

I have a question involving adhesives. I am fairly new to the sheet metal ind. I have made a few wall caps, and we are thrying to find out a way to attach the caps to the wall.
I was wondering if there is any type of adhesive to use that would work. the caps are 24ga. paint grip. I will have to check, but I believe that the caps will be attached to a finished metal. The super wants to attach the caps using an adhesive.
I was hoping that someone might have a little advise?

Good way to kill someone in a storm. The adhesives generally loosen from metal. You can get great hold when it has cleat, and you can get rubber to hold to it very well, but you will be hard pressed to find anyone willing to use an adhesive on architectural sheet metal. Hasn't the super ever heard of hidden cleats?

You know what would really be crappy using adhesives, too? Repairs. Think about removal of a damaged piece in the run.

Default indeed

adheasives also tend to let loose under heat..and i am sure that tin will heat up..
if you did use a hidden cleat then screwed it down then used standing seam or flatened hem or s that would work..
good idea bout the cleat matt
