Default Corrugated metal for interior walls?

gents,

the more I see people using galvanized panels for shop walls, the more I like it. here are my thoughts, what do you think?

Positives:

1. Not affected by weld splatter or grinding sparks.
2. If one panel is damaged, just replace it.
3. cool "industrial" look.
4. easy to clean off with a rag.
5. no fancy painting necessary in that area of the wall
6. no need for floor trim?
7. easy to trim the top with a piece of angle alum (anodized? painted? polished?)


Negatives:

1. how do you get receptacles to sit flush?
2. how do you get anything to sit flush? (workbenches, etc..)
3. glare?
4. how do you seal the bottom?
5. Pita to sweep the nooks and crannies?

other stuff I've missed?

They sell a molded wood strip to mount the panel to the roof, Mount 2 of those facing the interior and you can mount baseboard to it. The same concept can be used to mount a backing plate to hold the recepticles

Depending on your metal working skills you could cut the receptacle hole large and break a piece of metal to go around the box. I believe they call it picture framing it. Similar to how the siding guys box around a fixture or water spigot.

The photo of the garage with the Norton motorcycle is a a photo of my garage while under construction.....I didn't break the metal around the outlets but I did move the outlets out to be flush with the tin & used an oversized outlet cover that fits flush with the wooden box I built around the outlet...then, just paint the edges of the wood that show silver to match the tin & the outlets

..up top where the pegboard meets the tin, I nailed a 1x2 flat along the top of the tin & screwed the pegboard onto it then nailed a piece of screen trim (painted red) along the bottom of the pegboard...it actually sits just a tad farther out than the tin

...I didn't use anything where the tin meets the floor though I guess I could've used a 1x4 as a baseboard...I am planning on using that wavy wood you put underneath the tin on a roof as a small baseboard so I will have a straight line for my flooring

autoist,

yep. I borrowed your pic for inspiration. I hope you don't mind. In the rooms where I will have my mill and lathe, I will definitely go with 5 ft tall panels (might be flat instead of corrugated). When you blow metal chips off the machines, they spray all over the walls. This will make clean up a breeze! I might even round the corners to make sweeping chips easier!

Banzai and Nova, thanks for the input.

Often you can find a steel building supplier that will have 'seconds" or "cover sheets" and save substantial $$$....

In Garage or Basement can you attach corrugated directly to studs? I guess use galvanized screws?

If you want an industrial look, don't flush mount the electrical, use conduit and paint it RED. Red is the trim color in the computer pics. Go wild.

I think the metals sheeting looks very cool. I know the acoustics (echo_) and tinny sound will be there. Maybe that sounds great when you rev an engine? Other than thermal and acoustics-I like that look for a garage.

TheShrine also has a nice place with metal...if you look on my outlet what i did was take 4 screws and pull the metal down flat...put my cover plate on and then pulled the screws out...i didnt mind the holes because my metal is "aged" haha but you could always get ultra grey permatex silicone to fill any holes...thats what im doing on sharp edges...

mine is a metal building (made by Erect-a-tube). I like having a building that is not flammable.

REFLEXX...I had my plug/electrical boxes mounted out an extra 3/4 inch so that when I mounted the face plates they actually snugged up to the box and not the metal. It's tight and does not wobble.





As for the trim I used cedar around metal and OSB....







I used a channel/dado on the upper trim for the metal. We then slid it up in the channel, dropped it and trimmed with a 1 x 4.

I took a pole barn used to store hay and converted it to an insulated garage with a roll up door. All the electrical is conduit and is four foot from the floor in case I want to install work benches. The downside of using corrugated is the noise factor. For those inquiring minds, the lighting is on one side so I can put my motorhome in without fear of breaking a fixture

You could use a 1x4 or 1x6 baseboard, with a piece of J-channel above it. I would use a treated or cedar board.

They also make a product called Accoustical Steel. I don't know if they make it in the corrugated pattern, but it's readily available in the "standard" shapes. It's just got a bunch of uniform holes in it to deaden the sound.

Has anyone tried this with Ondura roofing? Same look, but probably an easier material to work with.

Looked at some for a similar project yesterday, stuff gets beat up too easily. I would imagine on a wall it would be torn to shreds in no time.

Red face Re: Corrugated metal for interior walls?

I didn't use galvanized, but used white corrogated panels. For the colored panels use can purchase "rat guard" pieces that are shaped with a lip that the panel sits on and holds the it about two inches off the floor. The rat guard gives a tight fit against the panel bottom and allows for cleaning the floor beneath the panel.

I've had a local heat & air installer make special metal parts at a very reasonable.
