    Wood Composite Panel (also known as “Phenolic Resin Panel or Phenolic Composite Panel”) is the architectural alternative to traditional aluminum composite panel.  While Wood Composite accurately describes the best known finishes of the product, this misnomer commonly distracts from the larger selection of finishes that can actually be ordered.

    Perfect for use in innovative and functional ventilated façade systems, Phenolic Resin Panels can help improve the overall energy performance of a building while providing extremely effective weather protection due to its high pressure laminate finish.  Phenolic Resin Panel also offers excellent dimensional stability for fabrication into an endless variety of shapes and sizes.

    Used on its own or as a highlight in combination with other materials, this next generational architectural cladding opens up a world of innovative design possibilities to give your building an exceptional appearance.

    Product Systems

    The two main product systems we use include:

    Concealed Fastener

    The concealed system hides the attachment behind the panel providing a smooth façade free of hardware

    Exposed Fastener

    The exposed fastener system is most commonly used due to its competitive price point and ease of install. Rivets or screws are used that are made of stainless steel or ordered to match the color of the panels.
