CENTRIA’s MetalWrap Series insulated composite backup panel system revolutionizes backup wall technology with an exceptional level of versatility in the form of the new, expanded MetalWrap Integrated and Long Span Series.
MetalWrap Integrated Series features integral attachment systems—including the MR-100 and MR-300 rail systems as well as integral clips, pintles and/or masonry anchors—for metal, terra cotta, ACM panels, brick facades and other rainscreens, making it the perfect choice for mixed-medium exteriors. In addition to both horizontal and vertical installation options, the MetalWrap system offers a variety of thicknesses to tailor thermal performance for even the most demanding projects.
When paired with CENTRIA’s metal wall panel cladding, MetalWrap Integrated Series creates a complete rainscreen system solution.
“As our tagline suggests, this product is truly the ultimate barrier system,” says Jeff Peskowitz, CENTRIA rainscreen systems product manager. “In terms of versatility, simplicity of installation, and superior thermal and moisture performance, MetalWrap Integrated Series is the complete package—backed, of course, by CENTRIA’s trained, experienced professionals, our elite Dealer Network and the new Weathertight Warranty.”
The new 10-year Weathertight Warranty provides an extra level of quality and performance assurance, synonymous with the CENTRIA brand.
The new MetalWrap Long Span Series provides flexibility when attaching the backup panel system directly to steel girts up to 6’ o.c. This innovative option includes widths up to 4” for superior thermal performance.
The benefits of single-component backup systems can have a dramatic effect on your project. Typical backup systems often make use of up to five separate components, including cavity and outboard insulation, air and vapor barriers, and exterior sheathing. This requires a high level of coordination and multiple installation steps, often leading to compromised connections and construction delays.
The MetalWrap system offers CENTRIA’s Advanced Thermal and Moisture Performance (ATMP®) technology in a single-component design. MetalWrap provides a weathertight building exterior at a fraction of the time required to install traditional multi-component assemblies.
MetalWrap insulated composite backup panels contain a foamed-in-place polyisocyanurate core for optimal thermal performance. The product also tackles water infiltration with CENTRIA’s pressure-equalized joinery system and a durable metal drain plane, eliminating moisture buildup and entrapment within the panel joinery. With a combination of a formed metal liner and both field- and factory-applied sealants, the MetalWrap system forms a continuous air barrier.
Incorporating CENTRIA’s Formavue® 600 windows, MetalWrap is the only insulated composite backup panel to feature integrated window options. Of course, single-source responsibility leads to efficiency in the construction process, helping to keep projects ahead of schedule and on budget.
Fully tested and code compliant, MetalWrap adheres to industry standards in thermal and moisture performance, air infiltration, fire resistance, and structural compliance. In addition, the product is certified by an Environmental Product Declaration by UL Environment. The MetalWrap rainscreen solution must be installed by a certified, trained dealer/installer from CENTRIA’s elite Dealer Network, ensuring the highest level of expertise from project inception to completion.
The MetalWrap Series rebrand coincides with the upcoming launch of CENTRIA’s latest addition to our wide array of product literature: the Rainscreen Wall Systems brochure. This educational, informative document will detail the science behind CENTRIA rainscreen wall systems and review the benefits of the complete rainscreen system, which includes control of moisture, air and vapor penetration; superior thermal efficiency; and preservation of the integrity of the building envelope.
MetalWrap panels are at the heart of CENTRIA’s rainscreen system offerings. The product integrates easily with some of the most dynamic metal single-skin product on the market, such as the curved Cascade® metal panels or the new InterceptTM modular metal panel system.
