Composite Material Panel Systems

SSM has developed, designed and tested our own ACM / MCM wall panel systems, and now fabricates and installs custom and standard module Composite Material Panel Systems in three distinct formats. Click on each below to learn more.

Custom

+SSM-100

This is an economical system, well suited to complex applications where dry joint systems are cost prohibitive. The SSM-100 system utilizes 1 inch nominal panel thickness, wet seal ½ inch joint, route & return format, with full length perimeter extrusions that function to reinforce the panel flanges, and in-turn align the panels. Building enclosure is completed by silicone sealant and backer rod.

+SSM-200

This format offers a low-maintenance, cost – effective, flexible panel system. The SSM-200 system utilizes 2 inch nominal panel thickness, dry joint (½ inch minimum size), route & return/rainscreen design. This system features a hi-tech, crisp, clean aesthetic with non-progressive independently removable panels over a ventilated wall cavity. A concealed air barrier membrane provides improved weather resistance.

+SSM-300

This is our perimeter reveal/hardware attachment panel system, featuring a high-end look, without the associated fabrication costs. Simple sheet goods and stick framing concept, with progressive or optional non-progressive installation sequence (facilitates panel removal and replacement should damage occur). Horizontal & vertical extruded aluminum H-trim (in batten and reveal profiles), as well as inside & outside corner trims are mechanically fastened to the substrate at the perimeter, panels edges set in a bead of silicone sealant slide into trim flanges concealing the fasteners.
