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

The myriad of features in Dri-Design that you would expect to be expensive are made affordable thanks to the unique patented interlocking design and automated manufacturing process.Dri-Design can be detailed as simple as installing over DuPont Commercial Grade Tyvek and plywood or designed as a sophisticated pressure equalized rain-screen with outboard insulation…your choice.

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.

Color Variation

As with any natural metal or process, you can expect slight color variance from panel to panel with an anodized finish.
