Metal architectural details accentuate buildings and add prominent features. Railings, screens, canopies, and shading devices punctuate projects and are important aspects of the built environment.

Technology advances are expanding what’s possible and helped make designs more flexible. For example, laser-cut panels are less cost prohibitive today and help highlight building features. Patterns in metal elements can accentuate certain aspects of the project and create accent shadows that change throughout the day. Insulated wall panels help reduce energy costs and come in many different styles.

There are endless possibilities for coatings and finishes to enhance metal details. High-performance Valspar coatings are used across the globe to highlight metal architectural features, creating both aesthetic and functional appeal. Valspar works with numerous approved applicators to ensure that you find the right applicator for your next extrusion or wall panel project.

 

 

Our goal is to offer endless inspiration. Learn more about how our ideas drive the industry.
