AP-3000RS Aluminum Plate

Aluminum Plate Panels (AP)

The AP-3000RS Series is an extruded perimeter spline joint, back-ventilated rainscreen panel system, which provides a contemporary look with crisp, caulk free edges. AP panel systems are best used in low rise applications that go down to grade, as accents with low volume custom colors. The AP-3000RS is best when a crisp aesthetic and long, maintenance free service life are desired.

Utilizing standard installation details, HC-200 series panels are sequentially installed to the structure with mechanical fasteners with an easy tongue and grove alignment. 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.
