A seamless metal texture with aluminium sheets arranged in a herringbone pattern


A seamless metal texture with aluminium sheets arranged in a herringbone pattern. The image represents a physical area of 2274 x 1730 mm (89.5 x 68.1 inches) in total, with each individual sheet measuring approximately 200 x 400 mm (7.9 x 15.7 inches). The joints are filled with a solid color and are 4 mm (0.2 inches) in width.

Aluminium is a common metal product used within architecture and construction, owed to its versatility, strength, and environmental credentials. In particular, aluminium’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 is an example of a herringbone pattern. Named for its resemblance to the skeleton of the herring fish, this pattern is formed with a series of interlocking rectangles positioned perpendicular to each other. It's use in the built environment dates back to at least Roman times and remains popular in contemporary architecture for a range of applications including tiled surfaces and parquet flooring.

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.
