Products and Materials used for Architectural Designs
Architectural Products and Materials
Architectural products encompass a broad range of materials and building elements including glass, ceiling systems, hardware and surfacing materials. Architects and designers use many of these materials in the construction of a building, while others help to put the finishing touch on custom elements like partitions and custom built furniture. Contract magazine strives to stay up to date on the latest architectural designs and products that can be used in a variety of settings covered in the magazine, including workplaces, hospitality, education and healthcare. These materials are an important part of the design of an interior because they are deeply integrated into the project. Contract editors follow the latest offerings from prominent companies and manufacturers by attending trade shows that feature a lot of architectural products and supplies, such as NeoCon, GlobalShop, HD Americas, and the American Institute of Architects (AIA) National Convention.
Architectural glass is often used as a way to bring character to a project, and with a variety of back-painted glass and even glass with digital printing, this product can be used in an infinite number of ways. Ceiling system can be used in a variety of ways, from fully integrated solutions to dropped ceiling panels that can be used to better acoustics in the warehouse-style office design that is becoming increasingly popular. Surfacing materials that cover walls and furniture are an architectural product that adds style and durability to these projects. Additionally, there are always new architectural product types that are being added to the market as the way architects and designers create buildings continues to evolve.
