Interlocking mounting clips aid in panel-to-panel alignment, and at the same time allows for panel expansion and seismic movement without buckling or undue stress. The mounting clips are free to slide along the frame's length, making design and erection of the building's supporting members a simplified task. By providing extruded aluminum entirely around the panel, extra rigidity affords panel sizes up to 60" (1.52 mm) x 168" (4.27 m). The system automatically sets for a 1/2" (12 mm) joint width, however, there is enough adjustment to reduce this to 3/8" (10 mm) joint width for jobs with small panels or if design calls for a small joint reveal. After the design has been approved, it is sent to fabrication where the panels are cut and bent, then the perimeter frame is factory installed so no job site fabrication is required. CRL's service doesn’t stop here, our Architectural and Ornamental Metals Technical Sales Staff is available to you during the installation process should any questions arise. The following pages show the panel materials available for the system and detailed connection drawings for all the attachment options.
