ProCLAD, Inc. utilized approximately 11,000 sq. ft. of Metl-Span’s CF30 Architectural Flat Wall Panels on its new corporate headquarters in Indianapolis, IN. ProCLAD specializes in metal exteriors for commercial and industrial facilities mainly in the eastern United States. The Metl-Span panels are finished in Cool Metallic Silver and Tahoe Blue and accented with flowing horizontal reveals.
The 15,000 sq. ft. building also incorporates Metl-Span’s new Metl-Vision™ Window System that features a flush frame design that fully integrates with the popular Metl-Span CF horizontal wall panel. The system accommodates window heights matching the standard wall panel widths of 24”, 30” and 36” or custom widths as required. Window width is virtually unlimited using spliced head and sill members in combination with intermediate vertical and horizontal mullions.
“We were involved in the development of the window system,” says President/CEO Brad Hitzfield. “ProCLAD is a long-time customer of Metl-Span and we have an excellent working relationship with them. Metl-Span has always been willing to listen to the needs of our customers and then develop a sound product that meets their needs. Metl-Vision is a great example of dedication to continued product development and refinement.”
Development of the new system was directed by Jay Smith, Metl-Span Director of Sales. “Architects prefer to design using integrated window systems instead of
drop-ins or punching out panels,” says Smith. “We worked closely with Moduline and ProCLAD to create a system that performs extremely well with our CF horizontal panels. The finished assembly eliminates interface problems common with standard windows.”
Hitzfield is naturally quite proud of the new structure. “Our own building provides a good example of what ProCLAD can offer its customers,” he says. “The building is very efficient from an energy standpoint with the R-16 factory insulated panel assembly. The build design also integrated the reveals from the composite metal panels, Metl-Span’s horizontal insulated panels and window system. The reveals continue uninterrupted around the building. The panels are folded around the corners with no exposed fasteners. It’s a crisp, clean look.”
