Panelboard™ System for Cladding

Regular cladding installers can quickly learn how to use our smooth plank products to create a Panelboard™ installation. The system is straight-forward in it’s application and cutting panels can be done on-site and can be finished in a variety of colors with 15 and 20 year warranty options available.

All the same tongue & groove mounting accessories and component trims can be used in a Panelboard™ install. Using a combination of smooth planks and component trims to create the impression of a solid large format panel. By using planks and components gives the designer and installer superior flexibility and ease of install compared to other large format panel systems.

Why choose Panelboard™ instead of other panel products?

Product Description

High-grade extruded aluminum, hollow backed with a base metal thickness of 1.77mm. Panel sizes from 1ft to 24 ft.


High impact strength. Due to their light weight reduce structural requirements and subsequent costs.

End of Use Recyclability

100% recyclable, the extrusion doesn't contain any plastic elements.


Easy to maintain and cost effective field repairs. Dirt and debris can be easily rinsed and washed off with a mild detergent depending on frequency of build-up. No caulking or glue is required for the product.

Environmental Concern

Longboard can contain recycled aluminum. Production of aluminum billets sourced by Longboard uses hydro-electric power.


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 according to manufacture's instructions.

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.
