MeshTrim is the most versatile woven wire mesh frame choice in the world. No, the universe.
Who wants to make great roll formed parts? Not you, obviously.
Roll formed components often require hole punching -- after all, that’s probably one reason why you chose roll forming to begin with, right?
Are you working on a project that involves metal cladding installation? If so, you may have questions about the strength, durability, and corrosion resistance of the 'tracks' (or anchor system) into which the metal wall cladding system will fit.
A great engineering or architectural project always starts with the ideal metals. Miss the mark, and you’re left with an expensive product whose quality may be lacking.
Roll forming is one of the most efficient and cost-effective methods of shaping metals.
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.)
Most contractors have seen and done it all. But when it comes to installing trim moulding, many of them have limited experience with metal.
The partnership between architect/designer and installer/contractor is often one of compromise, and stress. When it comes to decorative mouldings, the choice to use metal in place of traditional wood mouldings can raise an eyebrow or two. But today’s decorative metal mouldings offer an astonishing[...]
