Utilizing standard installation details, ACM-100 series panels are sequentially installed to the structure with mechanical fasteners and formed attachment legs. The minimum joint of ½” is sealed with backer rod and sealant compatible with the finish. We recommend use of hat girts and self-tapping screws; however, our panels can be fastened to flat strap furring or direct to 5/8” or heavier plywood.
