Main features

Expanded zinc is the ultimate in efficiency when it comes to enclosing spaces with and “open” material. In contrast to perforated sheets, expanded zinc undergoes and industrial process that cuts and spreads out the sheet over its length, creating no waste in the process.

Moreover, un large patterns, the process results in significant rigidity across the width of the sheet, reducing the need for structural supports.

These panels are highly cost-effective yet retain all of the qualities that make zinc such an attractive cladding material – aesthetics, sustainability, practicality and durability.

Two different models

Large format architectural panels

elZinc expanded is available in numerous models with different open areas.
They are ideal for the protection of areas that require some free air flow or to avoid external cladding, e.g. in the case of multi-storey car parks.

elZinc® expandido laminado

elZinc® expanded laminated zinc is available in two standard formats: coils and sheets. Both feature a fine perforation and a high free area, so that from a distance, the building it clads appears to have a continuous yet semi-transparent veil. They are also ideal for use as insect screens on roofs and ventilated facades.
