ModCell® Core panels are currently available in a range of depths:

Panel depth.     Straw depth.   
427mm.            400mm.            
377mm             350mm           
262mm             235mm             
ModCell® Core at the above depths are plus the depth of the battens and depth of cladding. The battens and surface finish could be on both the internal and external surfaces.

ModCell® Core  427mm, 377mm and 262mm are factory finished fully closed, dry lined panel system using breathable sheathing boards and breather boards. The standard external finish is breathable sheathing board, battened ready to receive a variety of rain screen cladding systems. the internal sheathing board is ready to accept a variety of internal boards.

Weathering details vary from project to project  and are developed by ModCell® in conjunction with the project designer. See typical details for recommended finishing and weathering details. 

ModCell® panels can be lifted into position on site using a telescopic arm or crane. The mass of 2.7m x 3m ModCell® panel is approximately 750kg. Panels are sealed using a range of airtight tapes. 

Weathering details vary from project to project and are not supplied by ModCell®.
