Strata is a new surface texture developed by MetalTech-USA as an attractive and economical option to enhance its line of architectural metal cladding products.
Strata consist of breaks, or shallow striations, in the flat surface of the metal running longitudinally. Strata add a layer of visual dimension to a seemingly flat panel by playing with light and shadow. Dependent upon the direction of light, mixing panel orientation and ultimately striation direction can give the façade dynamic, aesthetic appeal. The addition of this surface texture also provides rigidity for the panel allowing for thinner gauges to be used in conjunction with larger panel sizes, thus resulting in cost savings for the customer. Extra rigidity also eliminates the potential for oil canning, an aesthetic issue in thin gauge sheet metal applications.
MetalTech-USA Strata is suited to be applied to Standing Seam, Reveal, and Flatlock Panel Systems. Strata can be used in façade and roofing applications, soffit, ceiling tiles, and interior/exterior elements.
