Plate Panel Systems (AP) & Column Covers (COL)

Protean plate panel systems and column covers are typically fabricated from mill aluminum and finished post fabrication, allowing an infinite selection of colors with no minimum material order. Our plate panels and column covers can also be fabricated in stainless steel in a variety of patterns, finishes and colors.

Protean has partnered with Rimex Metals USA to provide stainless steel faces for our plate panels and column covers. Stainless steel plate panels are a great accent for your project (we recommend stainless HMP’s for larger façade applications), and column covers fabricated from patterned or colored stainless provide an elegant touch on interior or exterior column cover applications.
