IMETCO® Introduces IntelliScreen™ Complete Rainscreen Wall System Package
Norcross, GA - IMETCO (Innovative Metals Company, Inc.®) recently introduced its IntelliScreen™ complete rainscreen wall systems package, designed to deliver style, energy efficiency, strength, and longevity under a single-source warranty. IntelliScreen boasts a straightforward rainscreen design that effectively addresses the four major control layers of a wall assembly: water, air, insulation and vapor.
IntelliScreen systems include a versatile line of metal wall panels available in various materials and colors; vented horizontal hat channel with a patent-pending design that creates a one-inch air cavity for drainage and ventilation and virtually eliminates thermal bridging; stone wool continuous insulation offering thermal efficiency, fire resistance and noise reduction; and water-resistive air barriers that stop the flow of air and liquid water while allowing controlled diffusion of water vapor.
“Our IntelliScreen complete rainscreen package epitomizes the evolution of intelligent wall design. Providing all of the components under a single warranty provides the customer with the comfort of knowing the wall system will be designed and installed correctly, providing the long-term, energy efficient performance they desire,” explained Frank Resso, IMETCO’s director of business development and engineering.
IMETCO’s wall systems provide virtually limitless possibilities for metal cladding with both vertical and horizontal applications and custom incorporated details at each transition and termination: head, sill, jamb, and corner. Cladding is available in aluminum, copper, stainless steel or in domestically mined and processed United Zinc™. Additionally, the IntelliScreen system can incorporate a number of air barrier options, including IMETCO’s IntelliWrap™ self-adhering vapor permeable and vapor retarding air and water resistive barriers, fluid-applied air/vapor barriers or fluid-applied semi-permeable air barrier/vapor retarders. The entire assembly is tested in accordance with AAMA 509 and AAMA 508, with industry leading results.
