Lorin is pleased to highlight that our product line of pre-cut coil anodized aluminum stocked sheets has been updated to include a new ClearMatt® Pattern 119, perforated 48’’ x 96” sheet pattern offered in .032 gauge, anodized in a 250 mils anodic layer. Perforated anodized aluminum sheets deliver functionality, superior durability, and excellent aesthetics. The cost-effective coil anodizing process, pioneered by Lorin, protects the aluminum while also improving its aesthetic properties and durability.
Though other metals can be perforated, anodized aluminum is typically specified for the building construction industry because of its high strength-to-weight ratio, light weight, recyclability, corrosion resistance, and more. Lorin’s perforated, coil anodized aluminum sheets are recyclable and 100% made in the United States. What’s more, unlike other anodized sheets that are perforated after anodizing, Lorin coil anodizes its aluminum sheets after they have been perforated. This is done to protect the inside edges of the perforations and to ensure that color is consistent throughout the entire perforated anodized sheet, including inside the holes.
Other products available in the coil anodized aluminum stocked sheet product line include Lorin’s Weathered Rust and Copper Penny coil anodized aluminum sheets. By offering the aluminum in sheet, rather than coil form, Lorin enables architects and designers to incorporate stylish and functional aluminum elements on a small scale. This is beneficial for interior projects like accent walls, etc. It also is beneficial for smaller projects that do not require a large volume of aluminum. Lorin anodized aluminum sheets are shipped ready to form and punch, and have no minimum order quantity requirements.
