This slideshow requires JavaScript.

View Color Options

Perception Collection® metal siding consist of five concealed fastened metal siding panels with unique geometric angles and rib patterns which can be combined to create a distinct design. The shadow effect of these panels, whether used in a vertical or horizontal siding applications, evolves as the day progresses–it builds texture and changes design perception.

Perception Collection is a great profile for civic, commercial, residential, retail, and mixed-use building projects.


This long-lasting, durable, and sustainable metal panel also comes in several energy-efficient colors and paint systems. Perception Collection offers architects and building owners a unique yet flexible design when combined with other building materials.


Siding assemblies are rated for fire resistance (UL263) when installed in accordance with UL listings.
