Metal cladding has come a long way from black or silver rectangular panels. Advances in fabrication and engineering now allow for contoured and colored facades that are as durable and installation-friendly as they are eye-catching.
PATINA Flat-Lock Panels
For large surface areas, these panels offer architects a tremendous amount of artistic freedom as they can be installed vertically, horizontally, or diagonally in a range of widths. Variable joint staggering also opens up a wealth of aesthetic options. Complex facades with convex and concave geometries are well-suited for cladding with these panels.
Offered in 22, 24, and 26 gauge, these panels can be specified with siliconized polyester coatings. The standard minimum length is three feet; the standard maximum length is 50 feet.
Custom-fabricated sheet metal elements—from skylights to cornices to flashings—can give renovation, restoration, and new construction projects a distinctive character.
This fully-integrated rainscreen assembly includes metal wall panels available in various materials and colors; vented horizontal hat channel with a patent-pending design that creates a one-inch air cavity for ventilation and virtually eliminates thermal bridging; stone wool continuous insulation offering thermal efficiency and fire resistance; and water-resistive air barriers that stop the flow of air and liquid water while allowing controlled diffusion of water vapor.
The Designer Series 12.0 Flat Panel offers a 1 ¾-inch-deep leg that provides a cavity for rigid board insulation. The panel features concealed fastened systems, enhancing the appearance of a building. One leg of the panel attaches to structural members using a concealed clip, and the other leg snaps securely into the adjoining panel, locking them into position.
Consisting of two sheets of smooth .02-inch aluminum thermobonded to a polyethylene core, this lightweight composite panel is easily textured or curved. Offered in a comprehensive color palette.
