The ISO Clip is a thermal barrier separating the interior of the building from the exterior framing components. Unique design features reduce the thermal transfer from the interior to the exterior. Thermal performance of the clip has been verified by the industry leaders, Morrison Hershfield.
The ISO Clip is engineered to perform on all substrates; including concrete, concrete block, steel studs or wood. One ISO Clip can accommodate a variety of insulation thicknesses or wall depths, eliminating the need for shims or multiple clips sizes. The ISO Clip installed in the same orientation is suited to accept either vertical or horizontal sub-girts. Versatility and ease of use combined with the effective use of insulation makes the ISO Clip the product to specify.
Iso Clip Calculator is designed to help you balance wind load and thermal requirements to achieve the best performance and economical costs on your project. It provides a guided path through the extensive collection of load tables that have been prepared by Morrison Hershfield, who have analyzed roughly 90,000 combinations of wall assembly, cladding, clip spacings and other factors.
ACCUMET panel system is comprised of flat 4-mm aluminum composite plank that is available in a variety of colours and finishes - even stainless steel, copper, granite or marble.
ACCUMET is fully engineered for virtually any application. Accumet is a rear-ventilated rain-screen system and can be provided with gaskets for AMMA compliance. Whether making a corporate ‘branding' statement or simply re-cladding your existing facility, the Accumet 2000 system may be for you! Owners and designers also use this system on the interior as a feature wall or protective wall covering.
Laminam Ceramic supplied by Stone Tile International and made from a blend of fine-grain clays and other minerals to produce a very dense body, which makes it highly resistant to moisture, staining and wear. It will withstand years of heavy weathering in exterior faCade applications while maintaining its color and beauty.
Ceramic panel rain-screen faCade system available in the full range of Laminam Ceramic finishes and textures.
AXIOM panels are fabricated from tension leveled, architectural grade aluminum plate, complete with shop installed stiffening ribs (if required). Panel corners are welded on 3mm panels to provide a seamless finish. On 2mm panel corners are non-welded providing a sharper return edge.
In aluminum, the 3mm lightweight panels are factory painted, in an controlled environment, after forming, which allows for limitless applications and the ultimate in design flexibility. 2mm prepainted panels are also available as well as other non-ferrous materials such as zinc and stainless steel.
AXIOM is a solid metal plate wall system uniquely designed and tested as a pressure equalized rainscreen. The Axiom System meets all of the requirements of the latest edition of the National Building Code for non-combustible construction and is considered a true dry-joint “Rainscreen Principle" system. This system should be considered when codes prevent the use of composite panel.
