Sculpted™ 3D Rainscreen Wall Systems image

Sculpted™ 3D Rainscreen Wall Systems

This innovative dry-set rainscreen system features three complementary and interchangeable wall panel design schemes that produce the boldest three-dimensional forms possible.


Additionally, for enhanced visual expression, the 100% solid metal system is engineered for easy integration with LED lighting and features opportunities to incorporate other ornamental design elements. Plus, Sculpted provides opportunities to incorporate integrated planters and irrigation for growing vegetation.


Whether Sculpted is incorporated throughout the entirety of the building envelope or used solely for accented or featured areas, such as outdoor meeting spaces, the system easily interfaces with all other Metalwërks systems and alternative facade materials.


Sculpted may be installed over continuous masonry, concrete, or as the outer cladding in a wall assembly that incorporates continuous insulation and a suitable air and water barrier. Sculpted is also ideal for interior applications such as lobbies and atriums or any special gathering area.


Metalwërks can work with a design team to create other three-dimensional forms that meet your vision or design intent.

Arcwall Advanced™ Rainscreen Wall Systems image

Arcwall Advanced™ Rainscreen Wall Systems

Arcwall Advanced is a high-performance pressure-equalized rainscreen wall system made from formed aluminum or stainless plate that provides highly advanced water management capabilities.


The system achieves tested and certified AAMA 508-07 performance for nearly instantaneous pressure equalization between the exterior and interior of the wall cladding, significantly dampening capillary action created by negative pressure and vapor drive from exterior to interior. Additionally, where required, the system compartmentalizes the drained and back-ventilated wall cavity to baffle lateral air flow, a key principle of pressure-equalized rainscreen design.


Arcwall Advanced features a dry-joint design and may be installed in horizontal orientation over continuous masonry, concrete, studs/sheathing, or as the outer cladding in a wall assembly that incorporates continuous insulation and a suitable air and water barrier to achieve AAMA 508-07 performance.

Ameriplate™ Spline image

Ameriplate™ Spline

Efficiency and fascinating free-floating effects are hallmarks of Metalwërks┬«
Ameriplate wall systems.


With Ameriplate, the cut edges of the faceplate material are the panels' edges, a capability in metal you can only achieve with plate. When Ameriplate attachment hardware is concealed from view, architects achieve a fascinating floating panel effect.


The fabrication efficiency of Ameriplate, combined with Metalwërks simplified panel attachment options that speed installation, make for a highly competitive, high-end rainscreen wall system. Ameriplate panels are factory assembled with a flat plate facing structurally adhered to an extruded aluminum panel frame and may be flat or curved. Two-dimensional geometries of panel facings are virtually limitless and panels may be installed in any direction. Joint sizes can be variable and reveals can use a complimentary or contrasting finish. There are three primary design methods.


All Ameriplate systems install with concealed fasteners over continuous masonry, concrete, or as the outer cladding in a wall assembly that incorporates continuous insulation and a suitable air and water barrier. Solid metal panels are particularly useful where metal panels are used in pedestrian areas due to superior impact performance compared to other composite metal panel cladding products.

Omniplate™ 1500 image

Omniplate™ 1500

Omniplate 1500 is an economical barrier wall system with visible caulk joints at all horizontal and vertical panel joints.


As a barrier wall, Omniplate 1500 serves as the primary weather barrier for the building envelope. It can be installed on vertical, sloped or horizontal surfaces over masonry, structural steel, stud backup or within curtain wall designs.


Manufactured from either aluminum or stainless steel plate, Omniplate 1500 provides outstanding freedom of form including curves and complex 3D profiles, and permits challenging transitions without exposed trim or joints.


The system installs with concealed fasteners over studs and continuous sheathing, continuous masonry, or concrete. In addition to walls, the system is suited for vestibules, canopies and eyebrows, as well as for enclosing exposed columns, beams, and pilasters.

Omniplate™ 2510 image

Omniplate™ 2510

Omniplate 2510 is a premium dry-sealed barrier wall system with panel faces made from solid metal plate with no exposed sealants or gaskets.


These plate faces are structurally attached to extruded aluminum perimeter framing comprising the panels' interlocking horizontal joinery. Best suited for horizontally oriented wall design, the vertical gutters capture the drainage from the horizontal joints and shed water to exterior base.


2510 is ideal for flat or curved walls and soffits where the design intent is for pronounced reveals between the panel units and extremely sharp panel edges. Panel frame is exposed as a design element with a deep reveal in matching or contrasting colors.


The system installs with concealed fasteners over studs and continuous sheathing, continuous masonry, or concrete. The panel frame is extremely stiff due to the interlocking components of the assembly, and tested to high wind loads.

Selecting the Right Wall System image

Selecting the Right Wall System

Metalwërks┬« provides expert consultation to building design teams for selecting the most appropriate system for achieving aesthetic, functional, and performance criteria according to a project's budget. Here are just some of the questions we help to answer:


Does your project require a rainscreen or barrier wall system?

Metalwërks Rainscreen Systems - including pressure-equalized rainscreens - are engineered to shed the vast majority of water from the building. Small volumes of water that are transported behind the system move downward within the air space or cavity between the back of the panels and an approved air and water barrier. This water is drained back out of the cavity via flashing at the base of walls and the cavity dries after a rain event via ample natural air circulation. Learn more...


How will load conditions, product location, and design conditions affect system selection for your project?

Specific load conditions will determine the thickness of plate materials used in any rainscreen or barrier wall system, and may dictate additional stiffener or structural support requirements. Consult with Metalwërks to select the right plate thickness needed to meet load conditions for your project.


Beyond the exterior wall system, consider integrating Metalwërks systems in spandrel areas, feature walls and elements, overhangs, sunshades, column and beam wraps, and more. The location of these additional features on a project can play a role in the thickness, and overall system choice, so remember to discuss your whole project with a Metalwërks representative to ensure the correct specification.


Capable of achieving complex 3D forms, variable reveals, curved or flat designs, and more, Metalwërks systems give designers the luxury of virtually unlimited form and line. System choice will be impacted by design conditions, installation requirements, and aesthetic choices, so be sure to take advantage of Metalwërks complete design and engineering support to specify a system tailored for your project's specific considerations.
