Our AP-2000RS Rain-screen Aluminum Wall Panel system is our most economical rainscreen panel system. All metal wall panel corners in this system are welded and ground smooth with an option for tight fitting non-welded corners. Our AP-2000RS Aluminum Panels System can be installed as a drained/back-ventilated system or can be modified to install as a pressure equalized rainscreen system. The standard panel joints are 5/8” typical but the system can accommodate smaller ½” joints. Aluminum Wall Panels are reinforced with stiffeners as required by design loads to meet deflection criteria as well as eliminating the possibility of “oil canning”.
The aluminum wall panels can be custom painted to match or contrast other material on the project if required.

Utilizing Protean’s standard installation details the AP-2000RS Series Metal Wall Panels are sequentially installed to the structure with mechanical fasteners as a rainscreen system.

Our AP-2000RS Rainscreen Aluminum Wall Panel System is backed by and requires a proper air/water barrier to be designed and installed as with any rainscreen panel system.

See our aluminum Column Cover page for more information on our Column Covers and Beam Wraps to match or accent your metal panel system.
