Attachment Methods

Reynobond® panels can be installed by a variety of different methods, including rout and return and continuous edge grip. Both wet and dry-seal systems are available. Click on the options below to view the most common attachment methods.

Rout and Return (R&R) Formed Panel

Rout and Return Formed Panel


Rout and Return begins with a flat sheet of Reynobond® aluminum composite material. Typically, a continuous V-shaped routed groove is made around the entire panel perimeter. The corners are removed and the edges are folded to create a one inch deep "pan." The corners are reinforced with riveted aluminum angles to stiffen the panel unit.

Pre-punched aluminum clip angles are then attached at approximately 12 inches (305mm) on center to the returned pan edges. These clip angles transfer the wind load on the panel into the structural supports.

R&R joints are then caulked and sealed to prevent moisture penetration.

Continuous Edge Grip (CEG) Horizontal Joint

Continuous Edge Grip (CEG) Horizontal Joint


The CEG extrusion has a small lip which seats into a fabricated rectangular groove in the panel's edge.

Continuous Edge Grip (CEG) Vertical Joint

CEG panels are perimeter framed on the nonexposed side of the panel with extruded aluminum shapes which mechanically "grab" the panel edge. Additionally, these extrusions are set in a continuous bead of silicone sealant to ensure further positive edge grip.

CEG lends itself to dry set (no exposed sealant) reveal joints.
