Custom Interior Cladding

Versatile Designs that Stand the Test of Time 

Custom designs and finishes from Metalwërks® afford architects and designers with significant design freedom for interior and ceiling applications. Our fabrication expertise coupled with the durability and extended lifespan of metal plate ensures that your projects shine for as long as possible. 

Unmatched Durability 

Prefinished metal panels from Metalwërks® are highly resilient, resisting impact and abrasions even in high-traffic environments. Compared to field-applied finishes that can show wear and tear more rapidly, prefinished metal plates are a low-maintenance option that retain their beauty for decades. 

Solutions for Every Substrate 

Metal panels come in a variety of textures, profile forms, and unlimited color choices. The result is desirable aesthetics that can be applied to almost every vertical, sloped, or horizontal surface. This includes installation over uninsulated masonry, structural steel, stud backup, and within curtainwall designs. 

Designs That Go Beyond 

Virtually any vision can become a reality through the highly customizable nature of prefinished metal plate. Designers and architects can specify limitless options for joint treatments. And it’s all offered at a competitive value to other metal or non-metal cladding materials.
