Rout and Return Dry System

Rout and Return Dry

The flagship of quality engineering and design, the DRY system is a high performance panel system. Similar to unitized curtain wall design, the system is designed utilizing continuous double-gasketed interlocking perimeter extrusions with interior chambers used to control water infiltration. This design provides a “dry” wall cavity condition without the reliance of an air and water barrier. Any water that enters the system’s joinery is controlled and weeped back to the exterior. Tested to AAMA 501 standards, the DRY system has proven its performance time and time again.

Pressure Equalized Rainscreen System 2

Pressure Equalized Rainscreen

Designed using the rainscreen principle utilizing pressure equalization, the Pressure Equalized Rainscreen System (PER) incorporates concealed venting, allowing for rapid pressure equalization while preventing water infiltration. Tested to the AAMA 508 standards, the PER system provides a solid engineered option to the rainscreen question. Using the idea that less layout is better, the system attaches directly to the substructure through the continuous perimeter framing members. Additionally, the perimeter framing allows for simplistic compartmentalization.

Back Ventilated Rainscreen 2

Back Ventilated Rainscreen

Designed utilizing the Drained and Back Ventilated Rainscreen principal, the BVR system produces a V5/W1 classification when tested to AAMA 509 standards. A higher venting to water classification produces more air, which is required to remove excessive moisture using convection, naturally drying out the interior wall cavity. Using continuous interlocking extrusions, engineered with layout in mind, the horizontal joint venting clip attaches with the panel, avoiding additional field layout. The BVR system is an answer to the concept of using venting to control moisture.

Rout and Return Wet Logo

Rout and Return Wet

When a wet joint (caulked) design is preferred, the WET system is the choice. Designed with continuous perimeter extrusions, the system allows for quick attachment to the substructure. No requirements for additional clip layout. The interlocking perimeter extrusions run along all sides of the panels, creating conditions for ideal panel-face registration alignment without expending additional field labor. As tested to AAMA 501 standards, the wet system provides a good barrier wall option to your design needs.
