Custom Interior Cladding

Unlimited Finish Combinations at a Competitive Value

Metalwërks® custom designs and fabricates panelized plate cladding for a variety of interior wall and ceiling applications to achieve an architect’s vision and performance criteria. The smooth metal cladding may be applied to virtually any vertical, sloped, or horizonal surface over uninsulated masonry, structural steel, stud backup, or within curtain wall designs. An excellent choice for projects demanding wide design flexibility, the cladding accommodates artistic freedom by offering nearly unlimited combinations of finishes, profiles, and sizes, as well as options for joint treatments, all at a competitive value with other metal or non-metal cladding materials.
