Product> Forging Ahead: Innovative Exterior Metal Panels Systems

High performance metal panel systems in an ever-growing repertoire of finishes and formats offer architects a durable and expressive medium for expression. Rain screens, IMPs, and dimensional tiles stretch the aesthetic vocabulary for exterior cladding. Architectural Screen Walls Metalwërks Fabricated as a turnkey system, these unitized perforated aluminum panels are mounted to an extruded aluminum grid. Such customized screen walls, incorporating formed panels as well as supports and attachments from the structure to the exterior, are offered as integrated, pre-assembled units. Intercept Panel System Centria Constructed with aluminum skins and no plastics or gaskets, the Intercept modular metal panel system is recyclable and sustainable. The light-gauge monolithic sheets provide for ultra-flat panels and can be custom built to conform to curved radial walls, formed corners, wing walls, and soffits. With a unique horizontal joint design, the system allows for not only rainscreen cavity venting at the base of each panel course, but also an equal pressure and temperature distribution. The panels are installed using extruded clips or a continuous joint engagement, eliminating the use of exposed exterior fasteners and welded corners. Tapered Series Wall Panel Dri-Design These 100% recyclable panels are manufactured from a variety of materials, including zinc, copper, stainless steel, and painted and anodized aluminum. They can be installed over commercial-grade Tyvek onto plywood, or can be used as an outboard insulation, pressure-equalized rainscreen. Panels are available in any Kynar color and are sized and detailed to meet the specific requirements of each project. Architectural Insulated Metal Wall Panels Metl-Span Installed vertically or horizontally with concealed clips, these flat, stucco-embossed panels are made of aluminum-zinc coated steel. Panel joints feature an offset double tongue-and-groove with extended metal shelf for positive face fastening. XC-12 Panel Morin In standard lengths from five feet to 30 feet, this concealed-fastener panel is available in 13 profiles. Suitable for new and retrofit projects, it can be specified with PVDF painted finishes and in a smooth or embossed texture. Azengar VM Zinc The lightly textured surface of this pale, matte-finish zinc catches natural light in a distinctive way, adding to the impact of an exterior. Its manufacturing process has been refined to reduce acids, effluents, and water consumption.

Product> Six Materials and Systems for Great Facade Design

Whether it's a unitized wall panel to facilitate faster build-speed or a cladding material that promises unlimited creative expression, new products for facades elevate both the art and science of design. Formawall Graphix Series Centria This single component wall system facilitates the design of complex patterns that combine horizontal, vertical, and diagonal reveals within a single panel. The panels have a steel face and liner, along with factory foamed-in-place insulation that fills the voids in the panel joinery and prevents a reduction in thermal values. They also features pressure-equalized horizontal joinery that provides long term protection with minimal maintenance. Linearis Swisspearl For installing with open joints, these rectangular panels are available in four sizes. Rot resistant, incombustible, and low in maintenance, the LEED-eligible planks are offered in more than 50 colors. Build-A-Pattern Cambridge Architectural To enhance solar shading and facade appearance, this new design program allows architects to combine multiple patterns of varying densities within a single panel of metal mesh. StrongFix TheSize Created for architects looking to design sleek, sturdy facades with minimal hassle, StrongFix from TheSize Surfaces is a new all-in-one ventilated façade and installation system featuring slim, large-format Neolith tiles pre-fitted with metal brackets. The first system of its kind, StrongFix is also slated to be ICC certified this summer. Meteon Trespa In a new palette of six grey colors that complement other facade elements like windows and doors, these matte-finish panels have a grained effect that perfectly mimics the source pattern of the wood. Weather- and UV-resistant, the panels have a closed-surface structure, which keeps the product smooth and easy to clean. Column Covers Moz Designs These column covers are fabricated from heavy gauge, solid-core aluminum in round, square, oval, and racetrack configurations. Pre-formed and pre-engineered for easy on-site installation, the covers are available in more than 500 combinations of color, grain, and pattern.
