PAC-CLAD Architectural Sheet and Coil
PAC-CLAD is a versatile prefinished sheet metal coating (Kynar 500® or Hylar 5000®) that is applied to both G-90 galvanized steel and 3105-H14 aluminum. Originally developed for use in abrasive environments, PAC-CLAD has proven to be ideally suited for application in metal roofing, curtainwall, storefront and trim applications. PAC-CLAD is now available in 37 colors carefully selected to complement a range of building materials
Petersen Aluminum Corporation maintains extensive roll-forming equipment in each of our regional facilities. Each of our rollformers provides panels that have been Herr-Voss corrective leveled. Standing seam metal roofing, flush, wall and soffit panels are all factory formed in lengths up to 50 feet. Longer lengths are available. Please consult our factory. Matching flashing and trim may also be factory formed or field formed from PAC-CLAD material.
Composite Wall Panels
PAC-CLAD offers another dimension in design flexibility with its series of Composite Wall panels. PAC’s panel systems provide unmatched performance and stunning visual effects for any commercial or retail application.
The PAC-3000 CS panels are comprised of an .020 face and back skin thermobonded to a polyethylene or fire-retardant core. Panels are formed by a rout and return process utilizing computer controlled routing equipment. This state-of-art fabrication insures tight tolerances and accurate panel dimensions. Staggered angle clips mounted to the panel allow for each panel to be installed and adjusted individually.
The PAC-3000 RS is a rain-screen system that eliminates the use of caulk, utilizing clean reveals for an architecturally pleasing system. The system is constructed with aluminum composite material (ACM), available in a wide range of finishes and colors to complement any design scheme. Extrusions are fixed to the perimeter of the panel and nest into the extruded track which is attached to the substrate. The result is a free-floating panel installation since the panel is not fastened to the substrate.
The PAC-3000 AP panels provide a nearly endless selection of materials, finishes and configurations. Panels can be fabricated out of painted or anodized aluminum as well as stainless steel. Panel configurations can be customized to suit your application.
