Aluminum composite panels are modern cladding solutions for both residential and commercial buildings. ACM panels are mostly used as the external cladding of office buildings, shopping malls, hospitals, storefronts, and other commercial architectural projects.
ACM panels are becoming one of the most popular cladding solutions for residential projects and applications, such as renovations and garage and shed construction.
Some of the most common applications for aluminum composite panels include:
- Facade cladding
- Exterior wall cladding
- Column wraps
- Interior wall cladding
- Acoustical Panels
- Branding elements
- Retail Displays
ACM Panels for Modern Commercial Buildings in Toronto
Commercial buildings often require high durability and insulation materials to keep the interiors comfortable and provide perfect insulation.
An aluminum composite panel is the best choice for these types of buildings as it is extremely durable and provides significant insulation.
Additionally, ACM panels reduce noise, which makes them the best alternative to more traditional materials such as wood and brick. Moreover, ACP can maintain consistent interior temperature throughout the year, reducing energy costs.
Aluminum Composite Panels for Modern Residential Homes in Toronto
Aluminum composite material (ACM) provides a great solution for modern residential buildings. ACP is lightweight, durable, and has corrosion-resistant characteristics making it the ideal choice for modern homes.
With these modern aluminum cladding panels, architects can create a beautiful minimalistic look that has become popular over the past decade.
With aluminum composite panels, modern residential architecture has become more accessible while still maintaining strength, affordability, and longevity.
Alumshine is an ACM panel manufacturer and supplier in Toronto, providing the highest quality aluminum cladding panels for residential and commercial projects. We make these modern metal claddings by bonding two layers of pre-panted aluminum sheets to a polyethylene (PE) core.
Our ACM panels are excellent modern materials for outdoor and indoor applications that require dimensional stability, low weight, and an elegant look.
We produce aluminum composite materials (ACM) by continuously bonding two thin layers of aluminum on both sides of a mineral-filled core. Before we bond the aluminum faces to the core, we pre-finish and coil-coat the faces in various colors and finishes.
Solid Color ACM Panels
Solid painted colors are available on 4mm ACM panels, with many of the most popular choices stocked in various lengths and widths.
Our solid-color aluminum panels offer the most durable finish.
Metallic Finish ACP
Alumshine also offers ACM panels with metallic finishes. These aluminum composite materials are perfect for modern commercial facilities and businesses that need an aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Additionally. our metallic series ACP materials increase the energy efficiency of a building as they reflect sunlight and insulate the building perfectly.
Stone and Wood Pattern Aluminum Composite Panels
Some homeowners and business owners don’t find the modern appearance of metal cladding and prefer a more conventional style or a combination of modern and classic architecture and want to install durable materials. Alumshine has the perfect solution.
With our wood and stone pattern finish aluminum composite panels, you can make your building resistant to different factors such as high wind loads, corrosion, rust, and more while creating the beautiful look of natural wood or stone.
Alumshine provides ACM panels that offer a wide range of advantages, making them the ideal solution for building in Toronto. Here is the list of benefits that our aluminum composite panels deliver.
- Quality of finish
- Easy and quick installation and workability
- Extreme durability
- ACM panels do not peel, crack, or chip
- No coil canning
- Maintenance free
First, we ensure that you choose the right type of aluminum panel for your building. Then we will determine where you want your panels to be installed.
Before we take measurements, we ensure that your ACM panels have a clean surface and that the windows of your home or building are installed
Since our composite panels are customized, our team takes a-built measurements by 3-D scanning your exterior walls or manually measuring every length and angle.
After we do the necessary measurements, we will start fabricating the ACM panels you ordered to your specifications. This stage includes cutting the panels and attaching any necessary hardware for the installation.
4: Waterproofing and Sealing
After fabricating your aluminum cladding panels, we use a waterproofing membrane or weather barrier on the top of the sheathing to add extra protection. Additionally, in order to keep the water away from your building’s foundation and structure, we install different types of metal flashings.
5: Mounting System
Before we install your aluminum composite panels, we need to install the mounting system.
This stage is crucial since it helps us to ensure that your aluminum panels are installed safely and correctly.
6: Final Installation Stage of Aluminum Composite Panels
Once we install the mounting system, we start installing ACM panels.
We ensure that your panels are plumb and level, have secure and tight fasteners, and seal the seams between the boards.
Wet-Joint Sealed ACM System
Our wt-joint sealed systems are designed to create an exterior layer of protection against external elements with water-resistant cladding.
The water-tight barrier we use depends on the joint seal’s practical application, which requires regular maintenance and inspection.
Dry-Joint ACM System
Our rain-screen systems do not rely on a single face sealing but rather manage water and wind infiltration in a two-layer system.
Most of the water insulation is done in the outer cladding layer. However, we use an interior air barrier (AWB) as a second layer of protection.
