Technical information

Below some technical specifications of our products:

the products offered are made of CorTen steel and aluminum with different thicknesses depending on the objects: 1 / 1.5 / 2mm. On request we use other thicknesses and materials, 304/316 stainless steel, iron, brass and more...please enquire.
CorTen is a steel, widely used in engineering structures and thanks to its structural and aesthetic quality it has seen steadily increased its inclusion in architectural projects, interventions in the landscape and product design. We suggest it for its intense look and material purity, unique to each piece produced. It develops a self-protective patina surface oxidation, the color of which varies with the passage of time. Brown-orange stabilizes, exhausting the oxidation period, with a more dark brown leather color, when exposed to rain and moisture.
Warning: Especially outdoors, the products are initially covered in a layer of rust which has yet to stabilize and that can involve the underlying surface, led by drops of water. The effect will end after a few weeks/months (depending on the speed of rust formation). In this first phase it is to also avoid contact with the tissues.
Products are shipped with a natural beginning of oxidation, the material is not treated with acids. On request the surface can be brought to a more advanced state of oxidation and subjected to specific treatment depending on the end use or the effect sought.

Aluminum has the ideal characteristics for the products we make: the very low weight of the material; the excellent weather resistance; the total absence of rust production. The type of aluminum used is the Peraluman, offering excellent corrosion resistance, even in marine environment, and excellent ductility.

The proposed products are powder coated in different RAL scale colors.
Powder coated aluminum can be washed with water and detergents, not acid or abrasive. All the aluminum preforated screens are matte finished. All the aluminum Home Decor objects are glossy finished. Paints used are AkzoNobel.

Measures of the screens:
All our panels are offered to measure with max. dimensions of 284x134cm, for installation on rails, balustrades or parapets, from ground level or for indoor projects, depending on the context.

Edges and bending of the panels:
All panels have a border that frames the design by 3cm. The panels with the 'open' top edge have the design that terminates in a more 'natural' way. All panels have a double perimeter stiffening by bending 35 + 35mm that can contain holes for fixing to poles and balustrades. Bends with different sizes and shapes for specific installations are available.

Design of the panels:
We offer a choice of 7 perforated designs:Schefflera / Bamboo / Stemona / Quince / Fig / Garlic / Olive / and 3 designs with a combined perforated and 3D composition: Monstera / Forest / Parrots. The panels with 3D effect are shipped with the flat surface: the protruding parts must be manually pushed or pulled out of the surface of the panel prior to installation. The scenic effect will be immediate and of easy execution.
It is possible to modify existing themes by adding new elements or thickening the design for greater visual coverage. We also develop themes and compositions for site specific projects.

Our panels can be equipped with waterproof LED stripes 24V warm light 3000 K°, that are housed in the double bending space. For an effective result it is necessary to have a background that allows the refraction of light. We can provide additional sheets of aluminum, painted in the required color, if there are no walls that act as a background.
