Barrier Plate 200 System - Description and Details
Before rain screens gained popularity, wet seal, or barrier-wall systems as they are sometimes known, were the preferred choice in building skins. The panels act as the primary seal on the building, preventing any air, water or vapor from entering the system.

Wet seal panels have welded and ground smooth corners, and upon installation a backer rod and caulk are applied in the joints between each panel, concealing the fasteners and completing the weather tight seal.

In some instances, a barrier-wall systems is preferred over rain screens due to weather conditions, climate and areas of high wind loads or pollution. They are still the skin of choice in China and Korea due to air quality conditions there.

Sunscreens & Grills

AMI fabricates sunscreens and grills from aluminum and stainless steel. Aside from adding visual interest to the exterior envelope of your building, sunscreens and grills can reduce the heat load. Grills, in particular, can play an important role in securing parking garages, loading docs and mechanical areas. For example, many parking decks use an egg crate grill in the first few floors of the deck to prevent anyone from gaining access without passing through a security check point.
