    Tactile Porcelain Cladding™ Digital Ceramic

    Our Digital Ceramic technology allows Architects and Designers to incorporate high definition images onto our Tactile Porcelain Enamel Metal™ Panels.

    Architectural Materials has developed technologies that give Architects and Designers the freedom to take any high definition image and integrate it onto our Tactile Porcelain Enamel Metal™ panels. Now highly detailed artwork can be displayed in a public space while providing the durability that Tactile Porcelain™ offers. Discuss with our design team how our Digital Ceramic technology may provide a solution for your next project.

    Tactile Translucent Bronze™

    Our Tactile Bronze™ technology has been widely embraced by architects and designers for articulated contemporary facades, historic bronze replacement, and sculptural applications. Our NEW Tactile Translucent Bronze™ in combination with our Tactile Composites™ allows our Tactile Bronze™ to be transformed from opaque to translucent surfaces.

    We invite architects and designers to challenge us with patterns, surface textures, and shapes for this new technology. The opportunity to create a truly magical architectural element is within reach!

    Fully Integrated Tactile Cladding™

    Our Tactile Cladding™ spans across our four material categories. This ensures your entire project cladding requirements can be executed by Architectural Materials from design, engineering, manufacturing, assembly, and Install-Assist™. On a recent interior cladding project, we design, engineered, manufactured, assembled, and provided Install-Assist™ for steel sub-framing, Tactile Cast Bronze Cladding™, Tactile Polished GFRC™, and our Tactile Leather Cladding™. Everything fit perfectly….no clashes and tight tolerances of 1/16″ (1.5 mm).

    Tactile Melded Metal™

    Reflect Metallescent Characteristics For A Fraction Of The Cost.

    Architectural Materials has developed Tactile Melded Metal Bronze™ that can be applied to our Tactile Cast Aluminum™ or our Tactile Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP)™ materials. Our Tactile Melded Metal Bronze™ finish allows you to achieve the same character and aesthetic quality of solid metal castings at a fraction of the cost. It can also be applied to our Tactile FRP™ substrates to give you a strong, light, and economical solution.

    Our Tactile Melded Metal Bronze™ is part of our Tactile Melded Metal™ finishes and is comprised of actual metal. Tactile Melded Metal™ finishes are available in bronze, copper, zinc, chrome and stainless steel suspended in a high-performance polymer. Inquire with our design team about integrating our Tactile Melded Metal™ finishes into your next project.

    Global Reach

    Global Reach with Local Resources in North America, Europe, and Asia.

    We have been privileged to provide our Tactile Materials™ and Tactile Products™ on projects in countries throughout North America, Europe, and Asia.  We typically collaborate with architects early in the design process to support the architect’s concepts including charrettes where we discuss the material possibilities and applications.  As the projects evolve, we produce project-specific samples and evaluate preliminary engineering requirements.  Once the design is determined by the architect, we provide high-level details and specifications to support the project.
