The Dri-Design Architectural Metal Wall Panel System is a pressure equalized rain-screen system, with a unique and patented interlocking design that functions as a superior method of water management and an efficient installation system. Creating sustainable products is a priority at Dri-Design. Aluminum composite panels utilize a plastic core, made with petroleum, which is a non-renewable resource and very difficult to recycle. At Dri-Design, we utilize solid plate aluminum, copper or zinc in our manufacturing process. By utilizing non-laminated plate materials, we eliminate the possibility of delaminating while making recycling easy. Dri-Designs patented interlocking design eliminates the use of silicones, gaskets and butyl tapes in the panel joints effectively eliminating the streaks, and best of all, the legacy of maintenance they cause. Dri-Design is fully tested to the most stringent industry standards including Miami-Dade Hurricane approvals.
