Southern Aluminum Finishing Co. (SAF) introduces 4000i Insulated RainScreen Panels as an addition to their ADAPT Panel and Column Cover Systems Accessories line. The 4000i is essentially an SAF 4000 Series RainScreen ACM, aluminum, or stainless steel building panel with insulation adhered by silicon sealant that meets use ‘G’ and ‘O’ of the ASTM C1184 standard. The type of insulation and R-value is customer specified. SAF recommends mold-and water-resistant insulations such as mineral wool or Polyisocynurate (Polyiso), available in a wide range of R-values.
Architects and design build contractors can reduce building energy consumption while improving performance with 4000i Insulated RainScreen building panels. Energy codes like ASHRA 90.1 have encouraged architects and building owners to specify insulated panels for both exterior and interior applications to reduce energy loss. 4000i Insulated Panels help in noise abatement applications, as well.
