Benefits Of Using ACM Panels During Construction

The advanced panel systems now being used for new construction offer several benefits when compared to the traditional siding options. The use of advanced technology and advanced building materials ensures a product that is durable, affordable, safe, maintenance-free, and incredibly easy to install, saving time and money.

If you’re looking to build a new home or commercial building, you might wonder what the best material is for the exterior. We want to let you know several installation benefits when using QuickPanel Systems in your new construction.

Delivery and Storage of ACM Panel Systems

At Engage Building Products, we believe in ensuring your project goes as smoothly and efficiently as possible. That’s why our products arrive on pallets with product labels to ensure that you have the correct components for your project.

ACM panel systems can be stored outside prior to installation without the risk of moisture or temperature affecting their performance. The panels are delivered with a protective film to help prevent scratching during storing, cutting, and installation.

Tools Required to Install ACM Panel Systems

When you install ACM panel systems, you are able to cut and measure on-site – meaning there is no need for assistance from a specialty fabrication shop. This is a significant benefit because it reduces the amount of time your project will take, and it also reduces the cost.

ACM panel systems can be easily installed with some basic and easily accessible tools. They are designed to be easy to use and require no special tools or skills. You can install them on your own and in a brief span of time. Here are the tools you will need for installation:

  • Mitre saw with non-ferrous metal cutting blade 
  • Impact driver/drill, with appropriate bits
  • Level
  • Hammer
  • Tape measure
  • Tin snips 

If purchasing a QuickPanel® System, each order comes complete with our proprietary tools to simplify the installation process.

  • QuickClips™
  • HammerBlock™ (available from EasyTrim®)
  • Industrial grade suction cup handles
  • Tremco® Spectrem® 1 silicone adhesive (sausage style)
  • Silicone adhesive gun/applicator (sausage style)
  • Hex screws – length and type (ex, wood or metal) will be determined by each job’s substrate.

ACM Mounting & Trim System 

QuickPanel Systems’ two-piece trim assemblies not only allow for no exposed face fasteners but also assists with the installation process by providing open “tab-free” areas; it allows for easier handling and alignment of the panels when engaging them into the mounting system. The top cap effortlessly snaps into place to complete the assembly; it is an innovative way to simplify your installation process, making it faster and easier than ever before.

Additionally, QuickPanel Systems’ trim system uses a unique color system for each type of trim backplate so that you always know what set of pieces is being installed where. This helps ensure that horizontal and vertical components are installed correctly, preventing costly mistakes when installing more complex designs.

Another benefit of these panel systems is that they are incredibly lightweight when compared to other siding materials. This helps reduce the effort required by many workers during installation time.


Not every project is the same as the last, which means your next project may require the support of an estimation and installation support team. They have the vast skills and knowledge to know the fine details to ensure your installation process is streamlined and make sure things go smoothly from start to finish.

QuickPanel Systems’ install support team works closely with the estimation team, ensuring you get what you require for your unique project. The QuickPanel estimation team provides a full complimentary take-off for your project along with a trim and panel allocation document. From the planning stage to completion, they know how to turn any project into a success.
