Lorin’s Anodized Stainless Collection, is ideal for exterior and interior architectural finishes. With a number of products meeting Architectural Class I and Architectural Class II designations, the Lorin Anodized Stainless Collection provides the perfect complement to a variety of applications, including exterior façade panels, exterior wall cladding, back splashes, column covers, and decorative trim. The Lorin sales team focuses on helping architects and designers select the products that will reflect your vision, by providing a stylish and durable stainless look.
Lorin’s anodized stainless finish is not a coating that can wear away. Anodizing is an electro-chemical process that builds an anodic layer from the aluminum, bonding it to the surface at the molecular level, thus protecting the aluminum from the elements. Featuring luxury performance, Lorin’s Stainless Anodized Aluminum will not chip, flake, or peel, and will never corrode or patina. It is durable, resists scratches and finger prints, and requires very minimal maintenance. Shipped ready to form and punch, Lorin’s Stainless Anodized Aluminum is slim, solid and strong, weighing 60 percent less than stainless steel, while still providing sufficient strength, improved ease of use, and natural good looks.
The Lorin Anodized Stainless Collection is available in a variety of stainless look finishes for exterior applications, from mill finish stainless anodized aluminum, to short line brushed and long line brushed, with additional texture options. For interior applications, choose from stainless bright in short line brush and long line brush finish, as well as ClearBrite® and AlumaPlus®. Black Stainless provides a beautiful option for exterior uses.
The Lorin Anodized Stainless Collection is 100 percent recyclable, making it a smart, environmentally responsible material decision. The material is an excellent choice for architects working on Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building projects.
