Insulated RainScreen Panels

4000i Insulated RainScreen Panels

4000i Insulated RainScreen PanelsThe 4000i Insulated Panel is essentially an SAF 4000 Series RainScreen ACM, aluminum, or stainless steel building panel with insulation adhered by silicon sealant that meets use ‘G’ and ‘O’ of the ASTM C1184 standard. The type of insulation and R-value is customer specified. SAF recommends mold-and water-resistant insulations such as mineral wool or Polyisocynurate (Polyiso), available in a wide range of R-values.

Architects and design-build contractors can reduce building energy consumption while improving performance with 4000i Insulated RainScreen building panels. Energy codes like ASHRA 90.1 have encouraged architects and building owners to specify insulated panels for both exterior and interior applications to reduce energy loss. 4000i Insulated Panels help in noise abatement applications, as well.

The 4000i Insulated RainScreen Panels are designed to meet all the same building construction code specifications as other SAF 4000 RainScreen Panels.  While Florida Building Code and High-Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ) testing have not been performed with the insulation, the addition of insulation does not materially change structural, air, or water handling properties of the panel system.

SAF project managers are available to help customers with questions about rainscreens and specifications, while their network of engineering firms can consult on local building code requirements, structural calculations and conduct job-specific performance testing if required.

WARNING!  ACM products, including the ACM as sold by SAF as its product, are combustible; they can catch fire and burn.  Any laboratory testing information provided by SAF or by ACM manufacturers applies only to the particular product or assembly tested and does not necessarily represent how products will actually perform in their use.  Reports and test data corresponding to a particular tested product or assembly are not a guarantee that the same product or assembly would always achieve the same test result.  End-users of ACM products must consult with building and safety code experts to assure that the actual end use for the ACM is appropriate on a specific project.
