GRIP Metal’s abilities to change the conversation when it comes to using wood-metal composites in framing, and exterior and interior structural facings in construction came to the attention of Canadian Architect Magazine, resulting in a feature article on the potential of the material.
Quoting Tye Farrow, a Toronto-based, internationally-active architect, GRIP Metal-based wood and metal facades could be formed in any shape and mount without adhesive, nails or screws. Unlike the adhesive-bound structural insulated panels currently on the market, Farrow proposes the use of ribbon-like, exterior-finished framing members that are 12’-6” long and 10 1/2” in depth, with laminated aluminum and wood at their core.
