SAF Introduces Dry-Joint Rain-screen System

Southern Aluminum Finishing Co. (SAF) in Atlanta has introduced the SAF Series 4000 panel system, a dry-joint, rain-screen system. The new architectural rain-screen wall panel system provides a defense against moisture problems by equalizing pressure between the interior and exterior environments by channeling air and water. Flashing and weep holes in the panel bottoms and vent holes in the panel tops can be added to allow for back ventilation and drainage.

Designed for both new build and refurbishment projects, SAF Series 4000 panels are available in a variety of cladding materials, including aluminum composite materials, aluminum coated with Fluorocarbon AAMA 2605 coatings and anodized aluminum.

Additionally, the SAF Series 4000 panels are designed for fast and simple installation. According to information from the company, Series 4000 panels are easily attached to walls with mechanical fasteners.
