  • Here we see the effect of light and shadow on a non directional, non reflective matte finish. The tower has a skin of perforated metal catching direct light. The cone at left-center is the same finish without perforations illustrating the appearance of the finish as it looks in the shade.
  • These composite panels with a ASTM #4 polish at the Dallas Fort Worth Airport deliver a crisp clean look. The picture does a good job of conveying the bright shiny appearance of a linear abrasive polish. You’ll also notice that the panels on the lower left still have PVC protection. This is an example of a good workmanship practice – that is keeping protective coatings on the metal until installation has been completed. Stainless steel composite panels can also be used on the building envelope.
  • Here is a closer shot of the tower showing the perforation effect in both light and shadow.

    5. 5. Environmental Responsibility Our philosophy regarding materials is to select a product that will last the useful life of the building with little or no maintenance. This usually results in the least long-term cost to the building owner. In addition, significantly less harm can be made to the environment by using permanent materials as opposed to more commonly used materials that require maintenance and replacement. Specifically, our portfolio of high performance metals serves this philosophy well. Beyond offering permanence, these materials are by their nature, environmentally “green” materials.

    8. 8. Life Cycle Costing Our philosophy regarding materials is to select a product that will last the useful life of the building with little or no maintenance. This also limits the environmental impact. Studies conducted in recent years by The Federal Highway Administration, Battelle Laboratories and the National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE) estimate that in the United States alone, we spend $300 - $550 billion per year combating metallic corrosion. The FHA study indicates that $113 billion of this cost relates to metal failures in construction applications. This suggests that to a significant degree, we are penny wise and pound foolish with the metals we specify. In terms of architectural applications, we argue that life cycle costing should be taken into account when selecting materials.

    27. 27. AIRPORT APPLICATIONS The non-reflective appearance of InvariMatte ® is ideal for an airport since it is easy on the eyes of approaching pilots. Since this finish lasts indefinitely, these busy public transportation facilities, Like the new Raleigh Durham Airport (rendering below) will not be disrupted for periodic maintenance, as would be the case with conventional materials.
