The building shown above features Reynobond XXL, superwide ACM which is an aluminum faced composite panel. The joints are created by routing and returning the panel edges around an extruded aluminum attachment system. Northshore sizes the panels on CNC equipment locally in order to assure the best possible alignment based on field conditions.
Northshore fabricates and installs systems from the following manufacturers:
Composite panels are typically fabricated and installed in one of the (2) principle rainscreen configurations.
The AL™ Series:
The NorthClad AL™ Series is an extremely versatile panel. Availability is key, and with a standard set of 169 different panel sizes your design options are maximized.
Each panel size is available in 20 standard colors. Custom panel sizes and colors are also available at an additional cost.
Superior Design Flexibility:
Traditional modular composite panel systems have historically been designed with custom dimensions making them very expensive to manufacture and install.
NorthClad’s AL™ standard panel system is available in square or rectangular modules. Combined with a superior flashing system, the result is a sophisticated modular look for a fraction of the cost of a custom system.
Based on .050 aluminum, the most widely used material in a wide variety of colors with a proven PDVF (Minimum 70% Kynar®/Hylar® Resins) paint system. Thicker is better in metal because weight will control flatness and minimize “oil canning”.
Low Cost Investment:
The most significant factors in the cost of a modular panel system are the initial and long-term cost of the material, and the cost of the installation. NorthClad’s AL™ standard panel systems are ideal for a functional, yet versatile vented rain screen design.
With excellent resistance to extreme weather conditions, the AL™ standard panel system will perform for many years and provide a significant return on investment.
