Wet Seal (Caulked) Panel Systems
Custom Wet Seal Panels with Mounting Extrusions, Hardware
SAF is a manufacturer of caulked panels, also known as ‘wet’, panel systems. SAF wet seal panels may be fabricated from Aluminum Composite Materials (ACM), anodized, painted aluminum and a wide ranging variety of other metals, such as zinc or stainless. SAF fabricates wet seal panels from composite materials by Reynobond®, Alpolic®, Alucobond®, or Alucoil®. SAF is unique because we have our own in-house anodizing and painting facilities. With metal panels choose from smooth, perforated or embossed textures. For aluminum SAF also offers custom color matching using polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) coatings with Kynar 500® or Hylar 5000® resins. SAF can provide a manufacturer’s 20 Year finish warranty on request.
Series C-3000 ACM, or M-3000 Glazed Plate Panels
The SAF Series 3000 Wet Sealed Panel System is designed for better structural integrity and better water/vapor protection. While no panel system is completely impervious to vapor/water penetration, the caulked 3000 system adds an extra level of protection. Additionally, this system is designed for higher wind loads and flatter panels. This system uses continuous “male” and “female” extrusions factory attached along the routed and returned edges of the panel, requiring a progressive installation method. The 3000 system may be manufactured with factory applied stiffeners to prevent “oil-canning.”
The SAF Series 3000 Wall Panel System in conjunction with the use of Alpolic Aluminum Composite Material, when constructed as tested, complies with the Florida Building Code.
Series NM500 Easy Clip ACM Panels
SAF Series NM500 Easy Clip ACM Panel system is our least expensive wet seal (caulked) system. The system uses a series of staggered clip angles along the routed and returned edges of the panel. The clip angles are factory attached in such a manner to allow for non-progressive installation and removal of any panel without disturbing adjacent panels. This system can also be offered with shipped loose clip angles for field attachment to the panels giving installers more flexibility of clip angle location and panel installation. Also, the NM500 system allows the building owners to quickly and easily replace a damaged panel in the future.
