Materials

Time tested. Reliable materials.

Aluminum

Aluminum is a strong yet lightweight material. It is a soft, durable, lightweight, malleable, ductile, nonmagnetic, and non-sparking metal.  It is easily machined, cast, drawn, extruded, welded and brake formed. Aluminum offers designers an almost unlimited pallet of constructability and finish options.  It is an ideal choice for those wanting the immediate appearance of patinated or weathered metals without the added cost burden associated with those metals and processes.

  • Per ASTM B209 unless specified otherwise.
  • Alloys 3003, 5005, and 6061 are most typically used in architectural panels applications.
  • Typical metal thicknesses include 20ga (0.032"), 18ga (0.040”), 16ga (0.050”), 14ga (0.063”), 12ga (0.080”), 11ga (0.090”), 1/8” (0.125”) and 3/16” (0.190”).
  • Aluminum is available is a number of PVDF finishes to include standard 2 coat, custom 3 coat, exotic, and the Overly Vintage Series™ and Overly Woodland Series™ of specialty finishes.
  • Not all metal gauges, finishes and panel systems can be used together.  Please contact Overly for assistance.

 

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel offers the designer a combination of both strength and beauty.  Stainless is typically known for its longevity, rust resistance and bright silver finish.  This non-ferrous metal can be brake formed, welded and soldered.  Stainless steel is considered to be a lifetime material.

  • Per ASTM A240 unless specified otherwise.
  • Alloys 304/304L,  316/316L, and 400 series are commonly used in architectural panels applications.
  • Typical working metal thickness include 24ga (0.024”), 20ga (0.032”), 18ga (0.048”), 16ga (0.061”), 14ga (0.075”) and 11ga (0.120”).
  • Available in matte, directional, non-directional, brushed, polished, mirror or embossed finishes to create a variety of tones. Colored stainless and PVDF painted systems designed for extreme environments are available.
  • Not all metal gauges, finishes and panel systems can be used together.  Please contact Overly for assistance.

 

Copper

Copper has been used for centuries.  This metal makes an impressive architectural statement for both roofs and walls applications. It is a ductile metal with high thermal and electrical conductivity.  Copper is both durable and malleable making it easy to brake form.   

  • Per ASTM B152 unless specified otherwise.
  • Alloy 110 and 122 is typically used in architectural panels applications.
  • Typical working metal thicknesses include 16oz/24ga (0.022”), 20oz/22ga (0.027”), 24oz/21ga (0.032”), 32oz/19ga (0.043”), 36oz/18ga (0.049”) and 48oz/16ga (0.065”)
  • A full range of finishes can be achieved to include bright, pre-weathered and embossed.
  • Not all metal gauges, finishes and panel systems can be used together. Please contact Overly for assistance.

 

Zinc

Zinc is the “other” natural metal that has quickly become a favorite with North American designers.  Environmentally friendly and fully recyclable, zinc can be used on both roof and wall applications.  Zinc metal alloy offers an elegant appearance, care must be given to proper detailing to ensure rotting doesn’t take place due to excessive moisture behind the panel.

  • Per ASTM B6911.
  • Typical working metal thicknesses include 0.7mm (0.028”), 0.8mm (0.032”) and 1.0mm (0.039”).
  • Zinc is offered with a standard back-coating and exposed finishes in natural, pre-weathered and colored/tinted.
  • Not all metal gauges, finishes and panel systems can be used together. 
  • Construction details should be reviewed with manufacuterers in advance. Please contact Overly for assistance.

 

Titanium

Titanium is a very strong yet light weight metal best known for its exceptional longevity, high corrosion resistance and deep luster.  Color is induced by an electrolytic process; it is not a coating but rather an alteration to the surface which creates the hue.  However, mill finish titanium has variable, almost grainy surface and is ideal for providing a random tile effect. 

  • Per ASTM B265
  • Grade 1 is used in architectural panels applications as it offers a good balance between formability and strength.
  • Typical working metal thicknesses include 26ga (0.018”) and 24ga (0.024”).
  • Available in mill and matte finishes, the latter of which will provide a uniformed finish across the field of panels.
  • Not all metal gauges, finishes and panel systems can be used together.  Please contact Overly for assistance.
