Petersen expands its family of PAC-CLAD® Precision Series wall panels with the introduction of the Box Rib line. The four new Box Rib wall panels feature 87º rib angles and a variety of rib spacing patterns. The Box Rib architectural wall panels are 1-3/8” deep with a nominal 12” width. They deliver design flexibility while combining bold visual effects with easy, cost-effective installation. Each of the four Box Rib profiles is offered in a no-clip fastener-flange option, or a clip-fastened panel to accommodate thermal expansion and contraction.
Architects and designers can specify one of the four panel profiles or combine multiple Box Rib panels on the same surface to create custom patterns of ribs and valleys. Petersen’s Box Rib panels are ideal for practically any structure that requires exterior wall cladding such as schools, hospitals, banks, sports facilities, office and industrial buildings, and most other nonresidential applications, but also residential buildings.
The Box Rib panels are part of Petersen’s PAC-CLAD Precision Series line of wall panels, which means they can be mixed with the seven Precision Series Highline wall cladding products to create a wide variety of custom patterns for a building’s exterior. Box Rib panels, as well as all Precision Series wall panels, can be installed horizontally or vertically. Additionally, Precision Series Box Rib, Highline, and HWP panels can be specified as perforated, but only in aluminum for use in applications such as equipment screens, over graphics, or for architectural flair.
