Metal cladding has come a long way from black or silver rectangular panels. Advances in fabrication and engineering now allow for contoured and colored facades that are as durable and installation-friendly as they are eye-catching. PATINA Flat-Lock Panels Rheinzink For large surface areas, these panels offer architects a tremendous amount of artistic freedom as they can be installed vertically, horizontally, or diagonally in a range of widths. Variable joint staggering also opens up a wealth of aesthetic options. Complex facades with convex and concave geometries are well-suited for cladding with these panels. Multi-Cor Panels McElroy Metal Offered in 22, 24, and 26 gauge, these panels can be specified with siliconized polyester coatings.

One Fish, Two Fish – Brooklyn’s Gotham MetalWorks Fabricates Historical Reproduction for New York Landmark Building
Gotham MetalWorks in Brooklyn. Normally, recreating an item like this involves creating a plaster cast, something impossible with an item made of four separate pieces. Instead, the craftsman at Gotham MetalWorks created a rubber mold, then a plaster cast of each piece, sharpening detail after each imaging. The final piece was stamped in copper using a pneumatic press, precisely reproducing the architectural element. “We are likely the only metal shop in the region with the capability to have done this reproduction with the precision and authenticity that the client required,” said Branch Manager Doug Kisley. Gotham MetalWorks has a long standing history with landmark buildings throughout NYC. Because these buildings require specific replication of existing materials during restoration or renovation, approval can be an arduous process for contractors and architects. With an extensive knowledge of historical preservation coupled with CAD and state-of-the-art techniques, Gotham MetalWorks focuses on achieving the desired result of both client and contractor, while adhering to the Landmarks Commission codes.
