Villa Rica, GA – October 14, 2019 – Southern Aluminum Finishing Co., (SAF), announces their latest RainScreen Panel System. The SAF 4200 RainScreen is a Drained & Back-Ventilated ACM Panel system designed to eliminate the visual appearance of mechanical fasteners from the panel edges.

The sleek panel system has the features most recently requested by architects, fabricators, and installers. Architects desire sleek-looking panels with continuous edge surfaces. Fabricators profit from the elimination of secondary drilling and countersinking of fasteners, reducing assembly time. Installers benefit from using the same wall panel extrusions and installation methods.

“Developing a system to meet customers desires and use current extrusions was a key requirement of the product,” explains Frank Buchholz, General Manager. “We are excited that we can continue to grow and develop new systems that we’ve built on our time-tested and proven wall panel extrusion system. We based the 4200 on our current extrusion platform to ensure that SAF products consistently meet the AAMA 509 performance standard, and can utilize other SAF products such as Simple Fix replacement panel.”

The SAF Series 4200 is a drained and back ventilated rain screen panel system incorporating a strip of composite material in a reveal between each panel (instead of caulk) resulting in a more uniform appearance. The Series 4200 system ships with fabricated panels and “track” extrusions ready to assemble on a job-site. The system is engineered to allow moisture to permeate the outside wall, but subsequently drain through weep holes on each panel frame.
