The progressive rainscreen system utilizes male-female connections to provide a quick installation process on the job site. Fasteners are hidden inside the panel joints and insert panels fill the joints with a matching finish.
The continuous insulation option allows for the wall assembly to meet the prescribed requirements of ASHRAE 90.1 and other environmental codes. Given the lightweight nature of the system, it can be installed on top of the architect's choice of thru-insulation attachment systems with very few limitations.
The wet seal system also has no visible fasteners just as the rainscreen system. It utilizes performance silicones at each joint to create a vapor barrier at the face of the panel, whereas the rainscreen systems permit water into the cavity and weep it out the bottom of the panels.
