Longboard Panelboard system are panels made from high-grade extruded aluminum, hollow backed with a base metal thickness of 1.77mm. They are useful in construction for their high impact strength and light weight which can lead to reduced structural requirements and associated costs. This system can be finished in a variety of colours including standard solids, metallics and terra cotta finishes.

Easy to maintain and cost effective field repairs. Dirt and debris can be easily rinsed and washed off with a mild detergent. No caulking or glue is required.
Longboard can contain recycled aluminum. The production of aluminum billets sourced by Longboard uses hydro-electric power.
- Benefits for Rain-Screen Applications
BV/D (Rear ventilated rain-screen), no need for caulking. Mechanical seals are used such as metal flashing and metal furring strips which are long-lasting.
Extruded aluminum does no oil can and will demonstrate extraordinary flatness and rigidity when installed correctly.
- Ease of Installation
Regular cladding installers can quickly learn Panelboard installation techniques. The system is straight-forward in it's application and cutting panels can be done on-site. Typically one installer can apply 100 SF of coverage per day.
