Textured Metal Exterior Sign 




An effective way to create a durable and distinctive sign. Both letters and mounting are cut on CNC equipment in our fabrication department. Letters are welded on studs to create relief. Easily lit from external sources because of the highly reflective nature of stainless.




Patterns used are 1SLG for the background and beadblasted 1CS for the letters.

Hive City Competition 



A University of Buffalo's Ecological Practices Research Group design competition sponsored by Rigidized® Metals Corporation.

This was a great opportunity for Rigidized® Metals Corporation to work with students on digital fabrication techniques, especially in the hand-off of digital files with complex pattern/data sets from the Architects CAD to our Fabrication CNC code. The custom perforated deep textured panels were of six different designs allowing for a unique and complex design while simplifying workflow. Hexagonal panels went from relatively open designs to complete opaque, allowing panels to create a beautiful interplay of solid and void. The panels were fabricated using Rigidized® Metals' pattern 5WL® in stainless steel with the texture further enhancing the play of light on the structure.

Illuminated Panel 



This concept was an experiment in a method to add illumination to corridors and walkways within our existing panel system. Using conventional CNC fabricating techniques to create unique openings that when covered with a translucent acrylic panel could be backlit using energy efficient lighting units that in this case are fluorescent.
