Panelized System

Nichiha uses a panelized system which allows for a quick and easy installation and doesn't require any specialized labor. Our advanced clip system virtually eliminates the need for face fastening and provides a drained and back-ventilated rainscreen, reducing the risk of mold and water damage inside your building.

Multiple Looks

Your projects come in all shapes and styles. Our expansive collection of textures includes metal, wood, stone, brick and block in a full range of colors and finishes to meet your needs. Even better, our panels can be installed year-round in any climate, eliminating possible construction delays in the harsh weather months.

Personalized Support

Our team of engineers and architects are available for Technical Design Reviews— ensuring proper specifications, optimizing your panel layout and answering any questions you may have. Additionally, our Technical Field Representatives are available to walk your team through the installation process so you can stay on time and on budget.

Serious Solutions


Volumetric modular construction is most often used in hospitality, student housing and multi-family commercial design. Volumetric modules are enclosed modules or “boxes” that are craned into place and connected on the job site. A volumetric building module is different from the other modular construction modules in that they are completely enclosed. This means that all six sides of the module are accounted for: 1 floor + 4 walls + 1 ceiling. Generally, volumetric module designers and manufacturers target 90%+ combined completion of the finishes and even furnishings to reduce the number of labor hours on site.


Non-volumetric modular construction refers to the panelization of a building’s design. Modular options include 3D components built almost entirely in a factory environment. Panelized options include 2D panel units, often referred to as Precut, Flat Pack or Kit options. These methods are comprised of pre-sized, pre-cut elements assembled and installed on site.

Nichiha Architectural Wall Panels have been increasingly featured on both modular commercial buildings and residential construction in North America. Nichiha fiber cement cladding is trusted for its high-performing durability, and its dependable, flexible design allows architects to enhance the exterior of their modular designs according to their own unique vision.
