A seamless metal texture with aluminium arranged in a staggered pattern. The image represents a physical area of 3229 x 4807 mm (127.1 x 189.3 inches) in total, with each individual sheet measuring approximately 1200 x 200 mm. The joints are filled with mortar and are 2 mm (0.1 inches) in width.
Aluminium is a common metal product used within architecture and construction, owed to its versatility, strength, and environmental credentials. In particular, aluminiumâ€™s strength relative to its weight makes it a material of choice for windows, doors, cladding, and finishes. In contemporary architecture, aluminium can adopt a range of metallic glosses, colours, or anodised treatments, and can accommodate brushed, polished, or stained finishes.
This texture uses a staggered pattern, in which each row is offset at random from the last. Staggered patterns are often found in brickwork, stonemasonry and in wood flooring layouts.
This image is seamless, meaning it can be tiled repeatedly for use in architectural drawings and 3D models. It can be used as a SketchUp texture, Revit material or imported into Photoshop for use in 2D illustrations.
