ATAS Introduces New Modular Wall Panel Series, Omawall
Allentown, PA - ATAS International announces the launch of Omawall,
a new modular wall panel series, which is the most recent addition to their vast product offering. The product name pays tribute to the Dutch heritage of the founders of ATAS.
Omawall (shown in the accompanying photos) is an architectural back ventilated rainscreen wall panel, manufactured in .063 aluminum. It installs quickly and easily in horizontal or vertical orientation without separate gaskets or metal splines, due to the unique interlocking dry joint
design. The standard module size is 18” x 96”, however, custom sizes are available. The depth of the panel is 1-1/2” and the reveal measures 5/8”. This panel is ideal for all types of commercial, educational, and healthcare
buildings, as well as multi-family residential and mixed-use buildings. Omawall is available in over 40 standard colors, including the new series of matte colors, and in custom colors. For small orders, ATAS has the capability of post-painting the
panels at a cost far less than prepainting an entire coil, which ensures meeting a building’s design intent without breaking the budget.
ATAS International, Inc. is a family-owned business that went from a siding and trim installer to an industry leading manufacturer of metal panels for the building envelope, with locations across the United States. Aluminum Trim And Shapes was founded
in 1963 by Jacobus “Jack” P. Bus in his home’s basement in Rochester, NY where he and wife, Nel, and children resided.
The journey to become business owners started when Jack and Nel moved from the Netherlands in the 1950s. The hardworking duo saw a business opportunity while Jack was installing siding and trim in Rochester. Prior to the advent of portable forming equipment,
he noticed contractors did not have the ability to bend their own products on-site. Jack then had the idea to do it for them and provided bent trim and other products to the contractors for their projects. This business was well-received, and the
company has seen tremendous growth over the decades.
Opaline has been a popular product offered by ATAS for many years, which is used in wall, soffit, and ceiling applications. Opa is Dutch for grandfather, so it seems fitting that Omawall join the family of products, as Oma is Dutch for grandmother. If
viewed as an acronym, OMA also stands for Outstanding Modular Application.
Dick Bus, president of ATAS, stated, “Since my parents started this company over 57 years ago, we have continued to increase our product and color offering to meet the desires of building owners and architects. I’m pleased to add Omawall to
our family of products, as a nod to my parents, and the company’s third-generation owners’ grandparents: their Oma and Opa.”
