Description

A seamless metal texture with zinc sheets arranged in a common pattern. The image represents a physical area of 1640 x 1620 mm (64.6 x 63.8 inches) in total, with each individual sheet measuring approximately 200 x 400 mm (7.9 x 15.7 inches). The joints are filled with mortar and are 5 mm (0.2 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 common or American bond. A true common bond contains between three and nine stretcher courses for every header course however the total number of sretchers can be adjusted. A bond with a single stretcher course for every header course is traditionally called an English bond while a bond with five stretchers for every header is known as Scottish bond.

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.
