The Fluid Panel can be used as a feature wall for interior or exterior applications or an accent unit in combination with standard smooth or reveal panels. An alternative profiled unit for architects who want more out of Boston Valley’s TerraClad rainscreen system than the standard smooth panel, Fluid is made using ram press technology with a ship-lap, and incorporated into the company’s standard vertical track-and-clip system.
