Shadow Series

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

Gone are the days of flat and featureless facades. Our Shadow Series panels let you add depth and definition to any architectural design. Individual panels can be extended at varying depths to create texture or a dynamic variation in patterns, all while keeping the substrate and weather barrier in the same plane.

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.
