Protean’s Architectural Metal Wall Systems Achieve Your Vision

Protean Construction Products is a leading manufacturer of architectural metal wall systems that can be tailored to your design concept.

Our name is derived from the Latin word “pro•te•an” (pro tē ‑n), which means “readily taking on different shapes or forms; versatile.” Like our name, our panels take on the form of your architectural vision.

With a passion to help you create great buildings that last, we provide project-specific solutions for your architectural metal wall system needs. We have extensive experience in the architectural market, superior quality manufacturing practices and products, and an understanding of field installation requirements.

Our engineering and design expertise enables us to help you achieve your vision without compromising your project’s budget. We only work with qualified installers to insure proper installation and a superior finished product that performs as intended and lasts for the life of the building.

Laminated Panel Systems

Protean’s laminated metal wall panels, available in wet sealed or rainscreen-style systems, are ideal for government, education and civic buildings. Aluminum honeycomb cladding systems are economical for projects needing long, smooth expanses. Insulated foam core laminated panels provide the added value of noise abatement and high R-value performance for increased energy efficiency.

Aluminum Plate Systems

Protean’s aluminum plate systems deliver both flexibility and versatility through fully caulked wet sealed systems and pressure equalized rainscreen systems. Well suited to small projects with custom colors, these systems are ideal for civic, education and government buildings as well as for retail/commercial accents, where durability is necessary and long life is desired.

ACM Panel Systems

Protean’s aluminum composite (ACM) panels, available in wet sealed and rainscreen systems, provide the lowest cost option where a shorter service life is anticipated. Best for low rise applications above grade, ACM panel systems are ideal for retail and multi-family buildings. Our ACM rainscreen systems offer the added value of low cost sustainability and maintenance.

Column Covers

Protean’s column covers and beam wraps are available in aluminum plate, stainless steel and aluminum composite materials (ACM). As an important complement to the overall design of your project, our design team can help you spec the column cover material, design configuration and column cover finish that best fits the overall aesthetic you hope to achieve.
