Painted Aluminum

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

Available in any color, with the ability to match colors of your choice without expensive upcharges – Dri-Design Painted Aluminum Panels offer the ultimate design flexibility for exterior and interior applications. Panels are painted using industry leading Fluoropolymer based paints for long lasting finish durability, while our finishers use a 100% air capture system to destroy the VOCs produced, so there is no adverse environmental impact.

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.
