Undulated metal panel systems by Zahner provide an aesthetic of rippling waterfalls by designing deep metal textures into the surface. As opposed to a specific technique, this creative feature is more a function of Zahner engineers and fabricators to innovate and develop custom systems which meet design concepts.
Zahner has developed a number of methods to achieve rippled metal effects. This includes both custom surface treatments which etch two-dimensional surfaces, as well as heavy surface pressing which create a texture or sculptural effect of undulated metal. These techniques can then be panelized into exterior facade systems, interior panel systems, canopies, ceilings, and more.
For a controlled aesthetic, undulated metal effects can be achieved through bumped metal systems. Similar to Zahner methods for embossing metal, undulations in a flat or relatively flat material can be created.
