Have you heard about the new ACP panel on the market? AL13 has changed construction for good. Their wood siding panel system is cut to fit and snaps together on site, reducing costs, installation and lead times. The system does not require prefabrication and can be installed on any type of structure. This is a game changer.
What’s so new is that the AL13 offers a new tab-over system. The wood siding panels are secured by the snap-lock fasteners. Panels are not welded or formed during construction. This allows for each panel to expand and contract across a broad temperature spectrum without causing buckling or oil-canning. The new tab-over design is unique to AL13, consisting of five different wood extruded profiles. The panel spacers and extrusions work together to create a pressure equalized rain screen system, allowing any moisture to exit.
If you like to keep your options open, you’re going to like the flexibility that the AL13 affords you. Installation is simple and allows the configuration to be tailored on site. No more waiting for prefabricated wood siding panels to be delivered! AL13 specializes in wood siding in commercial projects of all shapes and sizes.
