    Astro Metal Craft designed the Altair perforated aluminum building panels from the StellarCraft™ line with support in mind. Altair panels are a robust and dependable cladding system for building facades. They are lightweight, yet strong with the ability to add rigidity to any building. The infill panels are practical and affordable, too. Plus, the vertical support panels create strength. Indeed, this is to meet code for parking structures and building facades. Aluminum perforated metal patterns come in a variety of shapes and sizes for a truly unique facade.


    The Altair perforated panels are a support and fasten style, while the main support tubes running vertically. For instance, it’s everything you want in high-quality perforated panels! Astro Metal Craft takes all the hassle out of installing these panels. We assemble them completely on-site with self-tapping screws. Nevertheless, there is no worry about the welding. It’s all done in-house!


    StellarCraft™ Altair perforated aluminum building panels are designed to meet the IBC codes, 2012 edition. It is engineered to withstand wind load per (IBC 2012, ASCE-7/10 40 PSF & 60 PSF); deflection of aluminum panels to be L/60 max, and deflection of panel framing members to be L/175 max. See the printable Product Description for a complete listing of the Standards and Codes to which StellarCraft products conform.


    All our StellarCraft™ products get fabricated in-house at Astro Metal Craft to your exact dimensions, perforating pattern. The finishing options include a clear anodized finish for class 1 coating, or a high-performance two-coat fluoropolymer finish in the color of your choice. Furthermore, the warranty period for the anodized finish is only one year. However, high-performance organic coating is 10 years.
