CompactWood® Panels by AAM are available in 100's of different species and textures.

CompactWood® is real wood veneer encapsulated within a phenolic resin and melamine panel to deliver beautiful natural appearance with exceptional performance characteristics for the most demanding interior and exterior applications.

Resistant to UV, harsh chemicals and providing extremely durable surface properties, CompactWood® is ideal for exterior cladding and inetrior wall and column panels, restroom environments, swimming pools and any where the design calls for the natural beauty of wood in high humidity, wet or high abuse conditions.


The Façade attachment system is a parametric frame system comprising Steel Vertical and Horizontal members to provide unsurpassed strength and durability for the most demanding applications. This system allows for individual panel removal/replacement, is capable of transferring loads to the floor and can support panels of multiple thickness, types and edges details in the same elevations.

Stand-offs deliver opportunities to run ductwork and utilities behind the panel. All the panels are pre-machined with metal inserts in the panels to accept fasteners, making for the fastest and most accurate possible installation of panels.
