BEYOND METAL

Authentic cold rolled steel trusses, replicated in Class A fire retardant, high-impact urethane foam (at 105 pounds per 30' truss), complete with lite flake texture, gussets and rivets. Adding further realism, the 3-monitor media center is mounted directly to the 30' trusses. Rival House, Grand Casino, Hinckley MN.

THE LOOK WITHOUT THE WEIGHT

Any look and less weight. Whether it’s iron, steel, pewter, copper or titanium; plates, beams, pipes or channels; installation is beyond easy.

Our industrial artisans can hand cast materials with steely realism down to the last rivet, weld, hinge and gusset. FORMA Beyond commercial replications are a fraction of the weight of the real thing, yet they stand up to years of real-world use and never rust.
