The AL™ Series:

The NorthClad AL™ Series is an extremely versatile panel. Availability is key, and with a standard set of 169 different panel sizes your design options are maximized.

Each panel size is available in 20 standard colors. Custom panel sizes and colors are also available at an additional cost.

Superior Design Flexibility:

Traditional modular composite panel systems have historically been designed with custom dimensions making them very expensive to manufacture and install.

NorthClad’s AL™ standard panel system is available in square or rectangular modules. Combined with a superior flashing system, the result is a sophisticated modular look for a fraction of the cost of a custom system.

High Performance:

Based on .050 aluminum, the most widely used material in a wide variety of colors with a proven PDVF (Minimum 70% Kynar®/Hylar® Resins) paint system. Thicker is better in metal because weight will control flatness and minimize “oil canning”.

Low Cost Investment:

The most significant factors in the cost of a modular panel system are the initial and long-term cost of the material, and the cost of the installation.   NorthClad’s AL™ standard panel systems are ideal for a functional, yet versatile vented rain screen design.

With excellent resistance to extreme weather conditions, the AL™ standard panel system will perform for many years and provide a significant return on investment.

NorthClad's extrusion attachment system is engineered to provide superior wind uplift resistance and accommodate thermal expansion. When you desire a larger panel modules or panels with greater impact resistance, aluminum composite material is the way to go.


Technical - Wind Loading - Northshore Sheet Metal, Inc

It can be used to calculate the uplift at the center of a panel for both corner and field situations. This application utilizes wind loading calculations per the UBC. This Calculator will not function for roof heights over 400'. The following data sources are used by this calculator. Buildings between 60' and 400' in height.


Technical - Types Of Rainscreens

The joints between these boards may hold water if not properly sealed, and without placing an air-impermeable barrier on top of the insulation it may be difficult to obtain an airtight cavity as is required for PER systems. The system in force in most panel installations does not pressure equalize because of the upward or downward or sideways flow of air in a large cavity.
