EXTECH_CLEANWALL_web.jpgEXTECH/Exterior Technologies, Inc. (EXTECH) offers CLEANWALL® porcelain wall panel system for improved safety, durability and cleaning in transportation centers, pedestrian walkways, parking structures, restrooms and high-traffic publicly accessible applications.

EXTECH's CLEANWALL system's rugged performance resists graffiti, vandalism, scratching, chipping, gouging and environmental damage. Its smooth finish, rounded corners, enclosed edges and concealed fasteners provide for no-hassle maintenance. Its robust, noncorrosive, heavy-gauge aluminum framing allows for quick installation and individual panel replacement. CLEANWALL's flexible design accommodates variable panel sizes, signs, lighting and other fixtures and devices.

"Designed specifically with ease maintenance and vandal resistance in mind, CLEANWALL lives up to its name. It is both practical and aesthetically pleasing," said EXTECH's general manager Jim Leslie. "Adhered advertising films can be repeatedly installed and removed. And even the toughest permanent marker can be removed from our porcelain wall panels with standard cleaners."

Individual panels in the CLEANWALL system can be removed without disturbing adjacent panels. "This lets facility maintenance teams have convenient access behind the panels for inspection or post-installation wiring and other upgrades," explained Leslie.

EXTECH_CLEANWALLsystem.jpgEXTECH provides CLEANWALL in fully prefabricated sections ready-to-install over a wide variety of substrates, and adaptable to uneven substrates and varying field conditions. An 8-micron-thick porcelainized 26-gauge steel face sheet laminated over a 1/2-inch cementitious board with steel backer sheet provides superior impact resistance.

Continuous panel lengths are available up to 12 feet. EXTECH's standard CLEANWALL framing may be specified for 1/2-inch, 3/8-inch or 1/4-inch panels, in 2-foot and 4-foot widths or wider. Finishes are available in matching or contrasting colors.
