While it's certainly niche, roll forming is still like any other metal manufacturing process. A little collaborative engineering and a lot of lean manufacturing practices equal mutual success.
Soon after their introduction in 1910, Dahlstrom’s metal mouldings were being used exclusively by some of the most famous architects in the developed world. These designers framed doors, windows, and storefronts with architectural mouldings; they accented living spaces with baseboards, chair[...]
Like with many other things in life, age is a big talking point in decorative metals. Is youthful glow better, or is the weather look of experience more desirable?
Handing over project specifications requires everyone in the supply and production chain to be on the same page. Down to the word, even.
Architects are often frustrated when they see a finished installation of trim mouldings that have unsightly gaps. But what if you didn't have to cope or miter baseboard, and could buy pre-fabricated outside corners and coped inside corners straight from the factory? This is possible with our[...]
