The Cygnus Panel System is a patented ICBO approved system of which KEPCO+ is a licensed franchise holder. The system is comprised of a galvanized metal stud frame sheathed with 1 ½” deep type B roof deck to which thin veneer (tile or stone) is adhered. When a thicker cladding is utilized (such as 2 cm stone), stainless steel deadload anchors are incorporated into the system for additional support.
The Cygnus Panel System is a cost-effective, lightweight, cladding system which can be designed to include moisture barriers and weep systems. The system eliminates common tile problems such as cracking, leaching, and the efflorescence of tile joints. The system is not recommended for installing heavy, cubic elements.
Average weight: 12 lbs/SF for 1cm tile; 18-20lb/SF for 2cm stone
