SNHU Shapiro Library Renovation

Project: Shapiro Library Renovation

Architect: Analogue Studio, LLC , Boston, MA

Contractor: Harvey Construction Corp. of NH

Installer: Galaxy Glass & Aluminum, Manchester, NH

Material: ACM C4000 rain screen panel extrusions. SAF supplied Galaxy Glass & Aluminum with the stock length panel extrusions, who then fabricated and installed the wall panels.  These rain screens are a facade, requiring the installer to apply a weather barrier between the panel system and structural wall. SAF offers two kinds of rain screens: drained-back-ventilated and pressure equalized. Both meet AAMA 509-09 rating standard.  For more information about how to use panel extrusions, see our panel products overview at
