Skirting Transition Panel

The 5/16″ (8mm) thick facing provides the panels with superb impact resistance while keeping the panels lightweight (22-26lb [10-12kg]). The wall panels are installed using specially designed galvanized steel clips. Amgard panels can be used in both new and retrofit applications for commercial, residential, industrial, and institutional applications.

Amgard is a high quality, durable, prefinished insulated panel designed to protect foundations and waterproofing systems at grade and other transition areas in most types of buildings.

Amgard panels are 2×4’ (610x1219mm) and are available in a wide range of thicknesses ranging from 2″ to 6″ (51-152mm). Panels come in standard concrete gray color but can be special ordered to virtually any color or texture.
