B+N Industries’ Fortina has been gaining notice in the architecture community. The architectural system was recently selected as one of five product finalists for a 2017 Architizer A+Award in the Finishes-Wall Coverings & Ceilings category.
Designed to fool the senses, Fortina replicates wood slats and louvers with aluminum and a hyper-realistic non-pvc surface. The combination of these materials makes the collection ideal for green building. The large collection of finishes has a touch and feel that is indistinguishable from real wood. It dramatically enhances environments with the benefits of lighter weight, less cost, less waste, and easier installation, as well as more consistent color and finish than real wood.
Because of the materials and highly controlled manufacturing process, Fortina can be used in both interior and exterior situations such as walls, ceilings, handrails, cladding, and garage doors. With a variety of installation hardware, Fortina facilitates installation and can shorten project construction times while bringing the warm look and feel of wood.
