Starfleet Aluminum Rain Screens
Starfleet is a system of perforated aluminum metal panels. The perforations create a unique aesthetic to plain garages, while allowing the required light and airflow. These cost-effective panels are lightweight, yet durable, and virtually maintenance free. Also, the panels can be color-matched on each side for applications where both sides are visible. Hence, there is a variety of finishes to choose from, with the addition of a warranty.
Many major US cities require public ramps enveloped with robust screens. Perforated metal panels are an excellent choice to protect the public from vehicle exhaust and internal garage lighting. Perforated panels also disperse sound, control airflow, and naturally regulate the outdoor temperature. The screens fit nicely together to form tight, hairline joints, free from distortion and other defects.
Astro Metal Craft offers a combination of perforated sizes and patterns. Thus, there are 10 different shapes and sizes to choose from.
