Our Metal products are manufactured from T1 grade tin-plated steel. The material thickness is 0.010″. Our panels measure 2′ x 2′ and our moldings are available in 4′ lengths. All of our finishes are powder coated. Powder coating is an electrostatic process where polyester resin is baked onto the panels at 400°F. Our faux-finishes are hand applied over a powder coated base color. All of our products carry an ASTM E 84-03b approval (Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials).

The Nail-Up panel has a 1/4” overlapping seam, and designed to be nailed to a wood substrate. We recommend 3/8” plywood and 18ga brad nails. The nails are visible.
