Moon Township, Pa., Oct. 27, 2015—CENTRIA, a leader in architectural metal wall systems, has announced the expansion of panel profile options in its Cascade metal rainscreen system. An additional nine interchangeable rainscreen panels will provide architects with even more options to create dramatic wall configurations.
Cascade’s 1-1/2” deep rib combines a soft curve with an angular slope, creating a play of light and shadow that has never before been featured on a metal façade. The new profile panels include Cascade CC-200, CC-210, CC-220, CC-610, CC-612, CC-613, CC-620, CC-630.
The new panels’ concealed fasteners and common-lock joints work interchangeably with all the existing Cascade profiles, as well as with CENTRIA’s complete line of popular Concept Series single-skin panels. Each panel can be used in horizontal or vertical orientation, and interchanging the panels makes it possible for architects to create a unique, custom design with an unbroken appearance. Coupled with CENTRIA’s MetalWrap insulated composite backup panel, the product achieves superior, long-term thermal and moisture performance as the ultimate rainscreen solution. The product’s all-weather installation capabilities also ensure rapid installation time.
Additionally, the panels can be produced with either an embossed or smooth finish. Further design options include the Cascade EcoScreen perforated panel available in the CC-260 profile. Finally, Cascade profiles can be used in combination with CENTRIA’s MicroSeam Corners. Using cutting-edge structural bonding techniques, the panel corners appear virtually seamless, extending the shape of the Cascade panel all the way to the edge.
