  • Allowable Uniform Loads In Pounds Per Square Foot
The Designer™ Series panels provide the toughness of metal while creating an attractive, flexible and functional wall or fascia panel. The Designer™ Series is offered in fluted and flat panels, which are equally effective for new construction or retrofitting existing buildings.

If your design calls for a smooth or flat wall or fascia, look to the Designer™ Series 12.0 Flat Panel. The Designer™ Series 12.0 Flat Panel offers a 1 ¾-inch deep leg providing the perfect cavity for rigid board insulation.

The Designer™ Series 16.0 Fluted Panel offers a continuous rib design with a hidden sidelap where the panels join together. Ribs are 4-inches wide and 3/8-inches deep, providing interesting shadow lines along the length of the wall. The panel legs are 1 ¾-inch deep allowing ample space for rigid board, blanket or batt insulation in the cavity.

Each panel features concealed fastened systems enhancing the appearance. One leg of the panel is attached to the structural using a concealed clip and the other leg snaps securely into the adjoining panel to lock them into position.

Notes:
  1. The above loads were derived from uplift tests done in accordance with ASTM E-1592.
  2. Test results are highlighted.
  3. All values are interpolated from tests performed at spans of 3′-0″, 5′-0″ and 7′-0″.
  4. Design Load contains a 1.75 factor of safety.
  5. Stitch panels together at every support with (1) 1/4-14×7/8″ Lap Tek.
  6. Use HW-6602 Clip at every support
  7. These values do not consider fastener pullout, clip attachment must be designed separately.
  8. This material is subject to change without notice. Please contact Garco for most current data.

Notes:
  1. All calculations for the properties of Designer Series panels are calculated in accordance with the 2001 edition of the North American Specification For Design Of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members.
  2. Ixe is for deflection determination.
  3. Sxe is for bending.
  4. Maxo is allowable bending moment.
  5. All values are for one foot of panel width.
