Custom Architectural Composite Panel Systems in Texas


What distinguishes one fabricator from the next is the design flexibility, aesthetic appeal and longevity of its mounting systems. Manufactured finishes, colors and material compositions for metal wall cladding are virtually interchangeable, proprietary systems are not. NOW's composite panel systems are proven to meet or exceed the industry’s prevailing test standards and design criteria.

The Benefits of Using ACM
  • Limitless custom design 
  • Excellent manufacturing tolerances combined with re-design potential
  • Crisp, one-piece corners
  • Color durability
  • Excellent module flexibility
  • Concealed fasteners
  • Low panel weight reduces framing costs
  • Short manufacturing and fabrication times
  • Lower price
  • Radiused Panels
  • Aluminum skin never rusts
  • No tendency to blister or bubble
  • Aluminum panels reduce the risk of paint failure in humidity and salt atmospheres
The Benefits of Using High Pressure Laminates
  • Highly weather resistant
  • Large Panel Size (up to 7' sheet widths)
  • No mold due to continuous airflow between cladding and because of the microbial-resistant surfaces
  • Air flow behind system maintains equal air pressure behind cladding and the ambient outside air, which helps in preventing moisture penetration and regulating the building temperature
  • UV resistant 
  • Increases energy efficiency
  • Adds decades to the life of a structure
  • Impact, scratch and graffiti resistant
  • Withstands extreme temperature fluctuations
  • Unique colors and textures
The Benefits of Using Zinc
  • The look of a natural metal, without wild swings in appearance
  • Textural appeal
  • Very low life-cycle costs
  • 90 to 100% recyclable
  • Less “embodied energy” than steel or aluminum
  • Self-healing, with a naturally developing patina surface
