Infills are available in a variety of materials:
- Tempered glass, either monolithic or laminated
- Resin panels in both PETG and acrylic
- Mesh metal panels, perforated or a more exotic pattern in a choice of materials from aluminum to e-coated steel to stainless steel.
Finishes come in a range of patterns, colors and textures. Aluminum systems can be anodized with clear and bronze options, or powder coated in almost any color; Steel infill panels are produced in the same wide array of colors, but are first e-coated to protect against corrosion. Panels can also be supplied in a bright dip.
