New simulated Ore finishes expand creativity for metal architecture
Posted: October 8, 2021 | Tradewinds
PAC-CLAD Ore finishes from Petersen allow architects to add the look of natural metal patinas to any structure. Ore finishes will not tarnish, discolor or rust, which provides architects and specifiers with alternatives to expensive and unpredictable natural metals and make them an ideal option for clean, elegant metal architecture. A lineup of 16 Ore finishes ensures creative design flexibility for a finishing touch to any project or architectural style.
Applications are unlimited and can include education, office, retail, entertainment, sports, recreational and industrial buildings, multi-family mixed-use structures and many others. Ore finishes are available on 24- and 22-gauge steel, and .032- to .063-gauge aluminum, plus coil in 36.25-in. widths.
The new PVDF Ore finishes are available on PAC-CLAD wall and roof panels, coil and sheet and include the following options: Desert Ore, LuxOre Tiger’s Eye, Cinnamon Ore, Mercury Ore, LuxOre Dynasty, Green Zinc Ore, Sapphire Ore, LuxOre Zinc, LuxOre Baruch, LuxOre Onyx, Black Ore, Graphite Ore, Chromium Ore, Titanium Ore, Silver Ore and Platinum Ore. Ore finishes are not stocked and are subject to minimum quantity requirements so architects and installers should consult a PAC-CLAD representative to discuss lead time, warranty and related issues.
“Architects and specifiers will never stop looking for new products and finishes, so neither can Petersen. It’s clear that there’s demand among PAC-CLAD customers for something new and different, so we’ve added these finishes. The Ore finishes illustrate Petersen’s continued commitment to improving the products we offer, while growing in a smart, controlled manner while satisfying customers’ material needs from one source,” says Mike Petersen, president.
All PAC-CLAD finishes meet Petersen’s proprietary quality control standards and are covered by a 30-year non-prorated finish warranty.
