Our AP-3000RS Rain-screen Aluminum Wall Panel system is our extruded frame rainscreen panel system. All metal wall panel corners in this system are tight fitting non-welded, with an option for welded and ground smooth. Our AP-3000RS Aluminum Panel 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 9/16” typical with aluminum extruded frame typical 1 ½” Depth panel system. Aluminum Wall Panels are reinforced with stiffeners as required by design loads to meet deflection criteria as well as eliminating the possibility of deformation. 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-3000RS series metal wall panels are sequentially installed to the structure with hidden mechanical fasteners covered by spline material at the joints.

Our AP-3000RS 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.
