The Future of Metal
Architects, artists and designers choose Zahner for one reason above all other. They know that if they can dream it, we can do it. Our engineering and design specialize in discovering practical solutions for our customers.
Our constant exploration of new ways of treating, finishing, shaping, manipulating, and just plain abusing architectural metals yields breathtaking and previously unimagined options for designers.
Current Research & Development
- Fusing glass and metal to create unique artistic expressions.
- Enhanced oxidized zinc surfaces, such as Roano™ Zinc.
- Enhanced oxidized copper alloy surfaces, such as Puebla™ Copper.
- Oxidized steel alloys to create pre-weathered surfaces, such as Solanum™ Steel
- Structural support systems, such as the ZEPP™ Process.
- Advancing the Zira™ Process.

- Developing new chemical processes for sealing, such as the Z-1 Coating.
- Comparison testing of control samples and with new products to develop new patinas
Zahner creates smaller projects and products with the same level of craft that we dedicate to our buildings. Our philosophy is to combine unique metal surfaces with state of the art engineering and system integration. As a result we do not merely build column covers and chairs, tables and cabinets: instead we create unique and dynamic pieces that meet our clients’ desires.
The following is a partial list of the pieces that we have designed and fabricated for many of our clients:
- Architectural Accents
- Column Covers
- Custom Cladding
- Restaurant / Hospitality
- Light Fixtures & Sconces
- Screen Walls
- Store Fronts
