WHY LUX?

Quality, value, innovation, warranty, customization, availability…just to start!

LUX ADVANTAGES

Because of its advantages, certifications, and the simplicity of installation, LUX Architectural Panel has quickly become a leading force in the cladding industry.

LUX Architectural Panel products offer numerous benefits and advantages over the competition, such as:

  • LUX Panel is an extremely good value and offers more features at a higher quality than any other product at its price point
  • LUX is manufactured in Canada which means you will not have to wait for weeks or months for your order to ship
  • All LUX™ products are created out of a Galvalume Coated (ASTM A792) Steel, meaning you have the highest grade of corrosion-resistant coating on the market
  • Many cladding products ship in preset lengths, however, LUX is unique in that it ships in custom lengths anywhere from 4’ to 24’. This is both an environmental advantage and a cost saving one, as there is no wasted product
  • There is no minimum order – we value all of our customers, from the homeowner doing a small renovation to the major builder constructing an office tower
  • LUX Panel is extremely durable and maintenance-free
  • Our high-quality PVDF finish means that LUX™ is incredibly easy to clean and will not fade
  • We offer a 25-year finish warranty on all of our products, which is 10 years longer than other powder-coated aluminum extrusions or PVC products on the market
  • LUX is made from steel so it is non-combustible and has a Class A Fire Rating
  • Steel also means it is impervious to insects and plant growth, such as moss
  • LUX easily passes wind load tests, has a low expansion & contraction coefficient, and does not peel or warp
  • We offer an extensive line of standard, two-piece, and custom flashings
  • LUX can also be used as a soffit; our venting options provide enough venting per square foot to accommodate building codes
  • LUX has passed numerous government and standardized tests for fire, wind, salt spray, etc.
  • We have 37 woodgrain, metallic, and textured colours, as well as 19 solid colours for you to choose from
