The past few decades have been a challenging one for our industry, the recession left us scrambling to reduce metal maintenance costs for the commercial real estate community. With that challenge also arose opportunity. As the economy rebounded, building owners sought to renovate lobby areas to attract tenants. Architects, following the general trend of Neo-Modernism, specified metals that rejected classical ornamental and decoration. Rather than use expensive brass and mirror finishes, satin stainless and cold-rolled steel was specified.
In response to this trend, ADDCO developed a number of cost effective solutions for the commercial real estate industry. We pioneered the use of faux stainless coatings, which can be sprayed applied to brass to give it the appearance of satin stainless steel. In addition, we provided a number of oxidized finishes for use on stainless, cold-rolled steel, and brass. The pictures below show some of the various faux finishes ADDCO can apply in your building.
