Make It Metal

Why Use MakeItMetal Panels?

One of the biggest benefits to using MakeItMetal Panels is that there’s no special equipment required to cut/finish. MIM Panels use a real metal veneer coating on top of MDF (fire-rated or non-fire-rated). This allows the end user to cut the panels using standard woodworking tools. Colour-match edge-banding is a great option to finish panels and allows for the ultimate in flexibility of installation, and versatility of design.

All work carried out by MakeItMetal is finished by hand and, for this reason, the finish can vary. There may be subtle changes in the characteristics, look, feel and texture of the panels. We reserve the right to make changes to our products.
