Inspire by dri-design

NO SEALANTS, GASKETS OR BUTYL TAPE IN THE PANEL JOINTS MEANS NO DIRTY STREAKS OR MAINTENANCE.

Inspiration can come from many different places, but how do you bring your ideas to life? With Inspire by Dri-Design, we not only offer a select number of our own inspiring finishes, but deliver you the opportunity to create a finish that is completely unique and driven by your ideas. With Lumiflon finishing, we can provide a plethora of design options using its wide range of gloss and pattern capabilities. This advanced finishing technology can provide highly custom finishes with superior weatherability and durability, without the concern of delamination and bubbling associated with laminated products. Inspire by Dri-Design offers the long-life durability of aluminum with unique and customizable finishes that are equally suitable for use on interior and exterior applications.

Installation Consideration

Substrate

A substrate must be used behind the Dri-Design Wall Panel System. Some substrate options are 5/8” plywood, DensGlass Gold® or exterior grade gypsum board. Plywood will hold a fastener, however if DensGlass Gold® or exterior grade gypsum board is utilized, a flat strap or hat girt will be required.

Weather Barrier

A weather barrier is required for all Dri-Design installations. Your specific design and details will determine whether the barrier needs to be breathable or not. Please call us at 616-355-2970 or e-mail sales@dri-design.com with any questions regarding your specific project.

Fasteners

We recommend that stainless steel fasteners be used with neoprene or plastic washers.

Signs, Lighting and Handrails

Proper reinforcement must be installed behind the panels when attaching objects such as signs, lights and railings. DO NOT attach anything directly on the panels.
