Sustainable architecture is increasingly becoming the norm due to pressure both from regulators, the general public, and the designers themselves. The push to better preserve our resources and our land has us all examining options for environmentally sustainable building materials.
“What is roll forming?”
Even design engineers with 20+ years of experience still Google this question. Despite its efficient and industrious nature, roll forming is a niche manufacturing process known to few, and understood by fewer.
When performing maintenance on your metal mouldings, the most important thing to consider is the type of metal you’re working with.
Different metals require different levels of care and cleaning methods. Some chemicals in commercial cleaners can seriously damage a beautiful moulding.

However, it isn’t free. So what major factors affect the cost of roll forming? (Hint: Your design choices play a big part in it.)
Every year, more building owners choose to install and use steel doors instead of traditional wooden doors, but why is that?
From home decor to a growing number of commercial applications, decorative metal trim is setting trends in a variety of environments. It’s a great way to create a high-end look with a relatively small amount of material.

Shunning picture hooks and the like in favor of picture rail mouldings (also known as gallery rail mouldings) is another sneaky-smart way to class up the mundane.
DIYers on Pinterest and other websites have been devising fun ways to use picture rails in interior design for years. But when are commercial and high-end residential designers going to catch up?
Most contractors have seen and done it all. But when it comes to installing trim moulding, many of them have limited experience with metal.
Metal forming processes are an essential part of our society, and without them, our society would come to a grinding halt.
The products and components created by the different metal shaping techniques are used in creating everything from scaffolding and heavy machinery, to designing and creating[...]
