September 17th, 2007-SAF Metal Fabrication’s New Dry Panel System

KOMOsmallNew, Affordable, Dry Joint and Rain-screen Systems from SAF

Atlanta, GA – 13 September 2007 – SAF (Southern Aluminum Finishing Co.) introduces the affordable SAF Series 4000 dry joint rain screen system.  This is in addition to the existing SAF Series 3000 wet sealed system.  The new architectural rain-screen wall panel system provides a defense against moisture problems by equalizing pressure between the interior and exterior environments by channeling air and water. Flashing and weep holes in the panel bottoms and vent holes in the panel tops can be added to allow for back ventilation and drainage.

Designed for both new build and refurbishment projects, SAF Series 4000 panels are available in a variety of cladding materials, including:

  • ACM or Aluminum Composite Materials
  • Aluminum coated with Fluorocarbon AAMA 2605 coatings
  • Anodized Aluminium

Additionally, the SAF Series 4000 panels are designed for fast and simple installation, making them an economical choice for building and glazing contractors. Series 4000 panels are easily attached to walls with mechanical fasteners. Installers are supported by SAF’s full service CAD Services department.
