Metal embossing has been used in a wide variety of projects to transform the material aesthetic while providing added rigidity at a typical cost. A simple bump shape repeated across the surface of a metal panel can transform a standard panel system into something worth noticing, while also providing performance benefits. From custom embossed shapes to textured surfaces, selective embossing provides a great range of potential.
In addition to providing unique textures for metal, custom metal embossing rigidizes a surface. There are various methods to develop a uniform planar surface in metal. Folding the edges is one way to inbue panels with rigidity. Another way is to simply increase the thickness of the sheet metal into a more rigid plate form. Using an ACM panel also works, although it has an ecological downside.
