Panelite
A Prefabricated Structural Cladding Panel System
Description

Panelite System is a prefabricated over-clad structural system. It consists of prefabrication of the EIFS portion inclusive of metal reinforcement inserts that are used to fasten the system to the structure. 

Advantages
  • Cost effective cladding solution
  • Higher deviation absorption
  • Significant reduction of constrution time
  • Lightweight
Uses

Panelite System is intended for use for new construction and retrofit - low, medium and high rise buildings.
