WHAT IS A STRETCH METAL CEILING
Stretch metal is a versatile architectural design material that provides striking visual effects. It differs from perforated material in the way it is produced. Stretch metal is achieved by punching slits into a metal sheet, while simultaneously pulling the material apart. This process creates a mesh material. The shape and dimensions of the openings depend on the tool that is used for the punching. Stretch metal has a 3 dimensional shape, if desired the material can be milled into a flat sheet.
STRETCH CEILING VARIATIONS
A range of Stretch Metal variations are available that will create a myriad of pattern possibilities. The openness of the ceiling depends on the choice of mesh size and mesh pattern. A change of mesh direction gives another incidence of light and a different visual appearance. Luminaries above the Stretch ceiling create lighting patterns and shadow effects.
