PANEL RIB™ WALL
ECONOMICAL EXTERIOR WALL SYSTEM
Panel Rib is more economical than wood, concrete or masonry alternatives. It is available in lengths up to 48’ which can provide a continuous panel from foundation to eave. This can eliminate the need for end laps and assures wall integrity and weathertightness. Panels are attached with self-drilling, stainless steel-capped color-matched fasteners.
VP offers an exclusive crimped base Panel Rib option, which saves installation time and cost of material, because it eliminates the need for notched metal or rubber closures. Using this panel also saves the building owner the need for painted base trim. And once constructed, crimping and notching reduce access for uninvited pests, and a Crimped Based Panel Rib affords no openings.
Panel Rib can effectively utilize blanket insulation as well as up to 2-1/2” of rigid board insulation. Your VP Builder can assist you in selecting the optimal insulation approach, considering up-front costs and long-term energy savings.
All gauges of Panel Rib are available in a wide selection of standard colors with KXL finishes. The KXL paint system is a PVDF finish applied to the zinc aluminum-coated steel to give a long-life color that resists fading and chalking. KXL is a 1 mil nom. PVDF finish with 70% Kynar® 500 or Hylar® 5000 standard.
