Efficiency and fascinating free-floating effects are hallmarks of MetalwErks® Arcwall wall systems.
With Arcwall, the cut edges of the faceplate material are the panels' edges, a capability in metal you can only achieve with plate. When Arcwall attachment hardware is concealed from view, architects achieve a fascinating floating panel effect.
The fabrication efficiency of Arcwall, combined with MetalwErks simplified panel attachment options that speed installation, make for a highly competitive, high-end rainscreen wall system. Arcwall 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 Arcwall 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.
