VMZinc’s Dri-Design Wall Panels is an advanced and very sophisticated metal wall panel system, made simple. Dri-Design’s many features, which you would expect to be expensive, are made affordable thanks to the unique patented interlocking design and automated manufacturing process.
Dri-Design can be detailed as simply as installing over DuPont Commercial Grade Tyvek and plywood or designed as a sophisticated pressure equalized rain-screen with outboard insulation…your choice.

Signs, Lighting, and Handrails:
Proper reinforcements must be installed behind the panels when attaching objects such as signs, lights and railings. DO NOT attach anything directly to the panels.
Due to human chemical makeup, fingerprints are quite visible on zinc. Gloves and long sleeve shirts should be worn during installation. To remove fingerprints, we recommend cleaning the zinc immediately with a mineral oil. Not all mineral oils are compatible with zinc, so we suggest you only use oils approved for VM ZINC®. (Review www.vmzinc-us.com/Maintenance_Cleaning.aspx for further cleaning instructions.)
ScratchesIf a scratch appears, the zinc will heal itself over time. For extremely deep scratches, the affected panel will likely require replacement.
