Metallic Series ribbed panels from Nichiha make a bold design statement and add 3D texture that complements modern materials. Like the maker’s other materials, Metallic Series panels install with the Ultimate Clip system, which creates a back-ventilated rainscreen to let moisture drain away. Panels are currently available in mother-of-pearl and gunsmoke colors with a brushed finish; additional colors are forthcoming. Metallic panels are priced at $9 per square foot.
