A seamless metal texture with zinc sheets arranged in a stretcher pattern


A seamless metal texture with zinc arranged in a stretcher pattern. The image represents a physical area of 3000 x 3000 mm (118.1 x 118.1 inches) in total, with each individual sheet measuring approximately 400 x 400mm. The joints are filled with mortar and are -25 mm (-1 inches) in width.

Zinc is a widely used metal in architecture and construction, dating back to ancient Roman times. For the past 500 years, zinc sheets have been used as a material for roofs, facades, gutters, and detailing, favoured for their durability and resistance to corrosion. Zinc remains a popular material in contemporary construction, with dark grey or black hues offering a sleek, minimalist, modern aesthetic for cladding, panels, and interior finishes.

This texture uses a running pattern also known as a stretcher bond. The stretcher bond is one of the most common bonds used in masonry construction and uses stretchers, bricks laid flat with their long edge parallel to the wall. Each alternating course is offset by a half stretcher.

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. You can download a high resolution version of this texture and a matching bump map or CAD hatch (compatible with AutoCAD and Revit) using Architextures Create with a Pro Subscription.
