Metal Panel

ACM was introduced in 1969. By the early 1980s, adoption grew exponentially as architects, fabricators and building owners discovered the functional advantages and beautiful possibilities of this remarkable new material.

 

Features

ACM can be used to create a practically unlimited world of complex forms and shapes. These composite materials are far more versatile and easier to fabricate than sheet metal. Cutting, grooving, punching, drilling, bending, rolling and many other fabrication techniques are easy to perform using ordinary woodworking or metalworking tools, with no special tools required.
The thermoplastic core makes ACM far lighter in weight than sheet metal, with no loss in rigidity. Composite materials are more affordable, easier to install, and they offer superior flatness, durability, stability, vibration damping and ease of maintenance. Sheet metal tends to distort, or “oil can,” due to differential expansion and contraction in changing weather conditions. ACM are immune to this effect, remaining flat and stable season after season, even in the harshest climates.
For these reasons and more, there are very few applications where it makes sense to build with sheet metal anymore. The superior fabrication capabilities of ACM enable architectural possibilities ranging from advanced rain-screens designed to withstand hurricane force-winds to incredible angled, radiused and even origami-like forms that would be prohibitively expensive or outright impossible to create using other materials.
