Curtainwall Backpans

Backpans are instrumental in most curtainwall designs where openings require insulation to meet the design criteria. Americlad’s backpan systems are steel and can be easily formed to meet the opening size and specifications.

Icon Sustainable


Americlad’s backpans offer valuable sustainability features, including LEED credits and the ability to recycle panels at the end of their life. A selection of our panels can be manufactured with recycled materials.

Icons Installation


Our backpans can be easily installed within the cavity opening of most curtainwall systems. We offer various depths to properly house installation, which can be factory-installed or filled in the field, depending on the application.

Icons Flexibility


Steel backpans offer significant design flexibility. The gauge and depth of the panel can vary depending on the design intent; gauges typically vary from 22 gauge up to 16 gauge.
