Metal wall panels featured in Metal Construction News’ February 2021 issue.
CENTRIA’s Concept Series single-skin, concealed fastener wall panels have a common-lock joint that allows the panels to be integrated with each other and the CASCADE metal panel system. Panels can be installed vertically or horizontally with an unbroken appearance. Panels are used with CSC-1, 2 or 3 attachment clips that provide ventilation cavities and drain planes behind panels.
MBCI offers 24-gauge and 22-gauge FW-120 architectural wall panels with FW-120 clips. FW-120 clips snap onto female legs of FW-120 panels, and then engage male legs of the panels. Lifting panels and fasteners (stitches) are not required during installation, which reduces the opportunity for panels to become distorted.
McElroy Metal’s 16-inch, concealed fastener Wave panel has 3/4-inch-deep ribs. It is available as a fixed or floating panel. A fixed panel is installed with an integral fastening flange which is rollformed into panels during manufacturing. A floating panel uses separate clips and should be specified at lengths 40 feet and greater.
