Pairing perfectly with fiber-cement panels or phenolic laminates, our Surface Mount System protects the building with drained and back-ventilated rainscreen technology. Fasteners are low profile and colour matched to the surface product. This open-joint system conceals the rainscreen cavity insulation with custom metal joint closures, plus UV- and water-resistant membranes. The Surface Mount System also allows for both expansion and contraction of the metal supports, as well as any building movement. With no need for surface-applied caulking or sealants, it’s a low-maintenance, high-value system.
