The AL13™ system differs from other ACM systems in that it is a tab-over system. The panels are secured by the snap-lock fasteners and are not welded or formed during construction, which allows for each panel to expand and contract across a broad temperature spectrum without causing buckling or oil-canning. The tab-over design is unique to AL13™, consisting of five different aluminum extruded profiles, which enable extrusions to work together with spacers to create a pressure equalized rain screen system, allowing any moisture to exit. The system does not require prefabrication and can be installed on any type of structure.
While the durability and longevity of their products are reason enough to call this company a leader in the green building industry, it's their ability to envision and consider generations well into the future that also garners them the title of environmental stewards. In addition to powering their office buildings with clean, renewable energy, AL13™ is now partnering with us to plant a tree for every panel purchased through sales of their architectural panel systems. With definitive care and concern for the environment we all share, AL13™ believes that it is just as essential to ensure that habitat is sustained and conserved for the many plants, animals and insects who call Canada's forests home, as it is to provide dwellings for humans that are created with sustainability at the forefront of design.
