 Installation is faster, less expensive & less invasive on site 

  • Joint sizes are typically between 6-12mm.

  • Trades may include masons, carpenters or ACM installers
  • Faster installation time
  • Less invasive on site and requires less equipment
  • Panels are installed from the bottom up & can be removeable 

 

 BACKUP WALL

Common back-ups for the system are steel stud, furring and masonry.

The assembly could consist of steel stud framing, exterior grade sheathing to the framing, water/air barrier, vertical aluminum z-sections attached through the water/air barrier and sheathing to the framing, then the AHPP horizontal interlocking channel extrusions anchored to the panels. Insulation is frequently located in between the Z sections.  Details are available upon request.
