Matrix Metal Panels are a concealed fastener rainscreen/wall panel system. The Matrix Series of products feature ten different profiles with unique and bold box rib configurations. Multiple profiles were combined at the Pinal County Attorney's Office. Installed 2 in. off the building, the rainscreen allows heat from behind the metal panel to vent out like a vertical chimney, without allowing it into the exterior wall system. The design team at DLR Group also used ribbed metal panels as shade fins on the facade. "We found ribbed metal panels that were off the shelf, and we used them on the facade to create little pockets of shade that mimicked the self-shading ribs of the saguaro cactus," said Hans Papke, Senior Associate, DLR Group, Phoenix.
