ACM-3000RS Rainscreen Panels

Aluminum Composite Panels (ACM/MCM)

The ACM-3000RS Series is an extruded perimeter spline joint, back-ventilated rainscreen panel system, which provides a contemporary look with crisp, caulk free edges. ACM panel systems are best used in low rise applications above grade. The ACM-3000RS system is our lowest cost option for the service life of your project based upon low initial material cost and minimal service cost over the life of the product.

Utilizing standard installation details, ACM-3000RS series panels are sequentially installed to the structure with mechanical fasteners to attachment clips that engage with the extruded perimeter spline joint. 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. Panel system must be backed by and requires proper Air/Water barrier to be designed and installed as with any rainscreen panel system.
