Perception Collection® Metal Wall Panels

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Perception Collection® Metal Wall Panels consist of five concealed fastened metal wall 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 wall application, 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.

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

Choose the Perception Collection for your next project to protect your investment for decades to come.
