Aluminum and Stainless Steel Architectural Panels, Wet Joint – CPWJ Series

Architectural Panels

DAMS Incorporated’s Wet Joint Metal Cladding Systems (Architectural Panels) have been in the market place for many years. The system utilizes continuous perimeter extrusions which reinforce the panel’s return, features sliding angle clips, and exposed caulking at the plate panel joints for attachment. Available in 1 1/2” or 2” system depth.

What are wet joint systems?

Panel system types are usually determined by the joint type. Wet joint systems typically have a backer rod and sealant in the joint. Sealant in the joint can offer some additional water penetration protection in unique conditions, whereas rainscreen systems employ a filler strip for a “Dry Joint”.  ½” and ¾” joints are the most common among these systems.

What are plate panels?

Plate panels are made from solid metal (aluminum – CPWJ Series, or stainless steel – CPWJ-SS Series) versus a composite panel, which is typically a “Sandwich” of 2 sheets of .020 metal (aluminum or specialty metal) with a Composite core.

Plate panels can have several advantages based on the application. One advantage includes the ability for the material to be welded. DAMS Incorporated’s plate panels come typically in .125” thickness and can be welded in unique shapes to conform to unique design conditions without the distortion or waring of thinner gauge panels. In addition, plate panels can offer some advantage over ACM panels in fire resistance.
