Pressed Metal Panels for Residential and Commercial Projects
For walls and ceilings
Pressed metal ceilings are also called tin ceilings, art metal ceilings, tin tiles, ceiling tin or faux tin ceilings. These words are used interchangeably on this website. Believe it or not, Australian pressed metal panels are not even made from tin! We now use a far better product - an aluminium alloy.
A recent pressed metal splashback project
Project details: This is the "Original" pattern. It is the most popular design sold for splashbacks. It has a small repeat pattern of 150 mm so it works well for this type of project where the panels need trimming at the ends of the bench top. The "Original" design is available in two sizes.

Dies from as much as 100+ years ago have been re-created and we are now able to enjoy the decorative ceilings and walls from yesteryear but updated into modern day projects..
These beautifully crafted panels are being cleverly utilized in both the home situation and in a wide variety of contemporary commercial fit outs. Depending on the design chosen and the way in which the panels are painted you can achieve a very formal look or a comfy, cosy cottage effect. When two identical patterns are painted in very different ways they then become barely recognizable as the same design.
Pressed metal panels are far superior to similar looking products
Durability - Pressed metal is made from durable aluminium which moves and flexes with the structure making it ideal for cyclone/tornado areas. The panels won't rust, crack or fall off and they resist moisture and odours. This makes their life-span virtually unlimited. The panels are made to lap over each other, many having flanges to assist over locking. This creates a seamless join.
Designs/Patterns - We offer a stunning range of metal interiors to suit Victorian, Federation, Art Nouveau, Art Deco and contemporary styles. Take a look at the range of pressed metal ceiling patterns and pressed metal wall patterns where you will find so many uniquely Australian designs.
Panel weights and dimensions - The aluminium alloy used to make the panels is very strong, yet extremely lightweight. The panels are large - usually 1828 mm x 610 mm (6' x 2') or 1828 mm x 915 mm (6' x 3') so a large area can be fitted relatively quickly.

Value - Pressed metal panelling will add more value to your property than it costs. It becomes a work of art and as such it adds a luxurious quality to any decor.
Painting pressed metal ceilings - Most clients choose to paint their metal ceilings themselves in one tone. The patterns are pressed deeply into the panels so both natural or electric light create lovely shadows on the designs. If you are painting your ceilings I suggest you use an oil based paint.

Some client comments...
"I got the package on Saturday. It all looks good! After looking at it on the site and seeing it in real life, it's just larger than life! I can't believe how detailed everything is. It hasn't been installed yet, we're still kicking around colors. I can't wait to see it from the ground looking up!".............. Paul Stewart, Secane, PA, USA.
"The ceiling panels arrived late last week very well packaged and in excellent condition. I absolutely love the patterns - they are beautiful. I am currently painting them before installation and I am even enjoying the job because I get to look at the patterns as I work. Thanks for all your time and effort in helping to supply us with such lovely ceilings!"........... .Melanie Jardine, Brisbane, Australia.
