Service Feature 01

TESTED & APPROVED FOR ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE

Americlad® rainscreen systems are dry joint systems that are offered in a back ventilated or a pressure equalized configuration. These systems are designed to offer superior water control during weather events and manage any moisture that may penetrate the wall system. A weather barrier is required behind the composite panels to keep the building free of water damage.

Our barrier wall systems are a more traditional panel system that includes a mechanically-fastened clip attachment. These systems have exposed caulking at the panel joints, with back routed sealed corners for weatherproofing.
