Granite® Impression, impressive aesthetics for buildings

Like nature, prepainted steel can take on various colours, textures and patterns to become a natural and beautiful skin for buildings.  Granite® Impression is a portfolio containing a wide spectrum of possible combinations, inspired by nature: Cloudy, Wood, Agate, Snake and Elephant are the firstborn of this family which will evolve with time, just as in real life.

Granite® Impression was initially developed for external building applications such as roofing and cladding. It has also inspired many other applications like doors and partition walls.

Granite® Impression can be formed into sandwich and cassette panels, profiled sheets, solar shades and fins, blades and other slim profile elements. It can be processed by cold forming and deep drawing without damaging the top surface, and can be joined using techniques such as clinching, riveting and adhesive bonding. Its unique flexibility allows sophisticated and bold designs.

A dedicated and flexible logistics and manufacturing offer has been introduced for Granite® Impression allowing the production of small coils to suit specific project requirements.
