Metalwërks® Custom Enclosures are formed metal assemblies for concealing MEP systems, structural elements, or conveyer systems within occupied spaces.

Custom Enclosures are designed with internal supports to accommodate interior clearances, yet provide stable and efficient installations. Often, Custom Enclosures integrate speakers, lighting fixtures, fire extinguisher cabinets, electric power, and telecommunication devices.

Features and Benefits of Custom Enclosures

Bush Airport
  • Available integrated operable door panels
  • Flat, curved, or 3D panel geometries
  • Unlimited shape options produced with up to 16’0” long CNC forming equipment
  • Three dimensional shapes are commonly produced
  • Welded end closures for a seamless appearance
  • Typically manufactured from solid aluminum plate, with options stainless steel plate
  • Aluminum and stainless steel: solid plate is highly resistant to incidental dents and punctures and suitable for high-traffic or abusive environments
  • Non-Combustible: minimal smoke or fuel contribution
  • Avoids NFPA 285 complications by avoiding thermo-plastic cores
  • All panel systems are reinforced/stiffened to resist detection limits
  • Aluminum: high performance finishes are post applied for the highest quality of coverage and uniformity
  • End caps, miters and panel corners and miters are fully welded and ground smooth to present a panel unit with a seamless appearance
  • Available in no-VOC powder coated finishes
  • 100% recyclable and manufactured from materials with high post-consumer/ industrial content which can contribute to LEED credits
  • Available in no-VOC powder coated finishes. Non-toxic and non-combustible.
  • Finish warranties up to 20 years (coated aluminum). Consult Metalwërks® for limitations.

Uses of Custom Enclosures

Dulles Light Boxes/Light Canopies
  • Enclose mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and structural building components
  • Monumental light towers
  • Light boxes and ceiling clouds

Metal Substrate and Finish Options

Aluminum Plate:

  • 3003-H15 aluminum alloy-temper
  • Thickness: 0.125” (3.18mm) standard. Consult with Metalwërks® for options.
  • Finishes: Kynar® or architectural TGIC Polyester powder coating

Stainless Steel:

  • T304 or T316 for enhanced corrosion resistance
  • Thickness: 11 gauge (0.125”) (3.18mm) standard, 14 gauge (0.078”) (1.98mm), 12 gauge (0.109”) (2.78mm), 16 gauge (0.063”) (1.60mm) options
  • Finishes: #4, #6, #8, and non-directional satin in smooth or custom embossed patterns

Zinc:

  • Consult with Metalwërks for options.

Zinc is a natural metal which has specific properties that will limit its use. It must be adequately drained, ventilated and weeped when used in exterior applications to prevent excessive corrosion. Please consult Metalwërks for the appropriate uses for your project design.
