While our standard screens are made up of 304 or 316 stainless steel, there are numerous other metal options available for architectural screens that help make the perfect product for you. Each metal has a unique purpose and advantage to it. All materials used are recyclable and some contain upwards of 95 percent recycled content.
Stainless Steel
304SS and 316L grades of stainless steel are strong, ductile and weldable. Treatments for this material include brushing, polishing, bead blasting and chemical color treatments. These materials are great for indoor and outdoor applications without losing appearance through corrosion. 
Carbon Steel/Mild Steel
This strong, ductile and weldable material can be plated, powder coated and painted in a dazzling array of colors and is recommended for indoor applications and some exterior applications.
This lightweight, strong, ductile and weldable material can be anodized, powder-coated and wet-painted with different colors. This material is suited for indoor and outdoor applications, but not recommended for exterior use near seawater.

Copper-Nickel Alloys
Z-Alloy, our proprietary material, is strong, ductile and weldable, and has a beautiful, bright copper color in its finished state. This material can be used both indoors and outdoors.
Duplex Stainless Steel
This material is almost twice as strong as regular stainless steel, allowing less material to accomplish more. Duplex 2205 is ductile and weldable, and available in brushed, bead- blasted and chemically color-treated. This material holds its original appearance even near salt water, where other materials would corrode.
And More...
Above and beyond the metals listed here, Johnson Screens can work with almost any metal imaginable.
