Rainscreen Façade - ACM and MCM façade systems
BENCHMARK’s ACM and MCM façade systems provide a striking finish that gives buildings a modern stylized appearance that is virtually maintenance free.
- ACM is a lightweight composite material, consisting of two aluminum cover sheets and a fire rated core. It is a simple and versatile product which delivers a weather resistant, unbreakable and shock resistant façade that is very easy to install. It is available in a wide range of colors.
- MCM (Metal Composite Material) consists of two metal cover sheets and a fire rated core. The commonly used metals are Zinc, Stainless Steel and Copper, though other specialty metals are also available. It comes in a nearly limitless array of colors, finishes, reveals and sizes.
