  • Dimensions

    Metal Wall Planks are typically supplied as standard 6", 8", 10" and 12" widths. Custom dimensions available.

  • Acoustics

    Metal Walls are available both non-perforated (non-acoustic) and perforated (acoustic). Perforation patterns are limited only to the type of material and gauge chosen and available tooling. Presently Nelson offers more than fifty different perforation patterns ranging from diagonal, staggered to straight as well as round, square and oblong holes. Our standard acoustical material consists of a Black or Off-White pre-laminated fleece (SoundTex®) typically bonded to the concealed face of the wall panel.
    For more details and options see our booklet “Metalouges”- an introduction to architectural metals, or contact your local Nelson Sales Representative and request our Architectural Metals Binder. Mounting applications and methods will vary application to application.
