Installation Systems

Laminators Inc. is the FIRST manufacturer to develop a fully designed, integrated and tested ACM panel and installation system!*

Combining our Field-Fabricated Installation Systems (1-Piece, Tight-Fit Molding, Clip & Caulk) with Omega-Lite® ACM and Omega CI® rigid insulated panels provides a simple design solution for installations requiring continuous insulation while maintaining code requirements for water control and NFPA 285 fire resistance. Simple and flexible, these systems allow for fast, easy fabrication directly on the job site, saving time and money by allowing installers to adapt to as-built conditions during installation.

With our Shop-Fabricated installation systems (Dry Seal, Rout & Return), the panels can be prefabricated in our shop and delivered directly to the job site, or an experienced fabricator can fabricate the panels.

Omega-Lite installed in both our field-fabricated and shop-fabricated installation systems meet NFPA 285, Florida Product Approval (FL#17652), and Miami-Dade County Product Control requirements. Our 6mm panel systems passed NFPA 285 without the need for a special, fire-retardant core.

Laminators maintains an ICC-ES Listing Report for Omega-Lite ACM panels as well as the following installation systems: 1-Piece, Tight-Fit Molding with BDV over Omega CI and Clip & Caulk with BDV over both Omega CI and gypsum sheathing.

We offer different panel installation systems to give you the look and performance you need at the budgeted cost you require. Panels can be measured and cut at the job site or in a shop environment. Cut-to-size panel lengths and widths can be ordered to minimize waste and reduce labor and materials expenses.

*Field-fabricated installation systems (1-Piece, Tight-Fit Molding, Clip & Caulk) ONLY


Our back-drained and ventilated field-fabricated installation systems provide designers and installers with the optimal solution to meet the challenges associated with achieving a code-compliant exterior wall envelope. Simple and flexible, the 1-Piece, Tight-Fit Molding and Clip & Caulk systems allow for fast, easy fabrication directly on the job site, saving time and money by allowing installers to adapt to as-built conditions during installation.

1-Piece, Tight-Fit Molding

A back-drained and ventilated system that provides an easy and economical, progressive installation system using a combination of “J”, “H” and/or “H-Reveal” moldings.

Clip & Caulk™

A back-drained and ventilated installation system that provides an economical method to achieve a Rout & Return look without the costly expense to fabricate.

Legacy Field-Fabricated Installation Systems

A “Legacy Version” of the 1-Piece, Tight-Fit Molding installation system and Clip & Caulk installation system. These systems are ideal for architectural features and when building codes do not require the high performance as designed in other installation systems.

Dry Seal

A high-performance pressure-equalized rainscreen that creates a “deep reveal” look without applying caulk at the joints.

Rout & Return

A sophisticated high-tech look utilizing a backer rod and caulked joint to create a “deep reveal” or flush monolithic appearance.

Omega-Flex™ Curve Treatment

A radial panel installation with consistent finish quality.
