Material Overview:

Increasingly, various formed or sheet metal panels are being chosen for rainscreen wall assemblies.  These customizable, highly engineered, open joint, drained and back-ventilated, metal panel rainscreen systems are capable of producing stunning, high-end aesthetics.  Painted aluminum panels are available in any color using a post fabrication Kynar finish.  Stainless steel panels are available in a variety of alloys and finishes.  Perforated options are available in both aluminum and stainless steel panels. 

Design Considerations:

Depending on the metal panel layout and fabricator's preference, either the Alpha Vci or Alpha Hci system can be selected.  Many designers are using “vertical” panel layouts, which necessitates an attachment wall in a reverse orientation for steel stud walls.  Contact ECO Cladding for the most cost-efficient attachment approach.

Available Systems

Alpha Hci System

Alpha Hci System

The Alpha Hci System serves as the Horizontal CI Sub-framing layer designed to address fire safety, engineering and thermal performance. Based on panel layout, creates an attachment plane for horizontal panel layout.

Alpha Vci System

Alpha Vci System

The Alpha Vci System serves as the Vertical C.I. Sub-framing system designed to address fire safety, engineering and thermal performance. Based on panel layout, the Alpha Vci System creates an attachment plane for vertical panel layout.
