CENTRIA Formawall Dimension Series® Factory-Foamed Panel System
CENTRIA Formawall Factory Foamed Panel System can be oriented horizontally or vertically with a variety of reveals, thicknesses and profile configurations, providing design flexibility and options. Formawall can be easily curved or formed; mitering permits clean, sharp corners for exterior walls, and beams. Formawall panels are available with a flat or striated face that is either embossed or smooth, and with Kynar-based finishes, CENTRIA's Duracast natural aggregate-textured finishes, as well as stainless steel finishes. For additional articulation two profiled shapes are available..
Concealed clips and fasteners plus dry gaskets and concealed sealants provide a clean, uninterrupted appearance while minimizing exterior dirt streaking and staining. Formawall profiled and flat panels integrate with CENTRIA Formavue window systems and most glass wall and window systems. Formawall panels feature a complete thermal break between the face and liner panels. Pressure equalized Rainscreen Principle horizontal joinery provides superior weather resistance. The Formawall Dimension Series Panel System also offers integrated louvers and sun screen units.
A separate guide specification section is available for Formawall systems that include integrated units.
We recommend you consult with your regional CENTRIA architectural representative.
CENTRIA is a world leader in the manufacture of metal building products and systems for nonresidential walls and roofs and electrical cellular floor systems. CENTRIA is also a world-class coil coater, coating a wide range of products for customers in numerous industries.
