Holey Metal



Petersen Aluminum has consistently demonstrated its ability to work with architects and installers to communicate our capabilities as they pertain to job-specific  details. This outside-the-box  thinking has allowed the incorporation of many innovative design elements into projects, and then implementation into final building construction. Petersen’s ability to provide custom perforated aluminum sheets exceeded both aesthetic and functional expectations for the School of Dentistry at East Carolina University, Greenville, NC.


BJAC Architects, Raleigh, NC, was looking for a special look for the soffit on this project. Baker Roofing of Raleigh NC, combined with the expertise of the PAC Acworth, GA branch staff, delivered the desired result.  The project specified a custom soffit for adequate ventilation, and Petersen worked with vendor Harrington and King to produce a custom perforating pattern to provide a 63% open area. Material used was .063 aluminum finished in PAC-CLAD Weathered Zinc  –  a non-stocked gauge in this finish, but the heavier gauge was required for extra rigidity and strength. Baker Roofing custom formed the soffits out of the perforated material, and also used .040 Weathered Zinc  flat sheets to fabricate and install the surrounding fascia.


The project also includes 34,000 SF of Petersen Aluminum’s 16” OC Tite-Loc Plus, a 180 degree mechanically seamed standing seam panel, utilizing .040 Weathered Zinc PAC-CLAD.  Balfour Beatty Construction of Raleigh is the Construction Manager of this on-going project, which is expected to be complete in Spring, 2012.
