ACM Panels

Cardinal’s ACM panels are proudly custom built in our Charlotte, NC facility from the highest quality recycled aluminum content for the best in class in commercial building exterior design.


We work with architects and general contractors to fabricate a premium, high quality product that is both efficient and outstanding. Our team finds a way to fabricate the most challenging projects by starting with proper, quality materials.


We provide two types of ACM panel systems: Evo and Fusion Panels.

Evo panels feature rivetless design solutions with concealed fasteners to give a sleek aesthetic exterior. Evo panels are made from recycled aluminum content to meet LEED requirements. To learn more about how you can use this style of ACM panel on your next project, contact us.

Phenolic Panels

Cardinal additionally specializes in phenolic panels when working with architectural metal design. Our phenolic panels are manufactured from a blend of both cellulose fibers and resin forming a decorative, versatile exterior laminate finish.


Cardinal is the only phenolic panel fabricator in the Charlotte area licensed to fabricate Abet MEG panels, which gives our clients the largest selection in design elements available for projects such as: rainscreen facades, balconies, sunscreens, outdoor signage and more.


We source only eco-sustainable solutions for phenolic panels to create a long lasting, weather resistant fit for your project.

Plate Panels

Our design range continues to expand, we also create custom plate panels for your architectural design solutions. We fabricate plate panels in both raw aluminum plate and steel, to be post painted in either Kynar, powder coat, or weathering steel.


We also partner with Pure+Freeform who fabricate beautiful Luminar plate panels capable of creating a unique, one of a kind facade. For more information on their finishes, please visit their website, or see our gallery.
