Hairline Corners

architectural-metal-hairline-corners-th-(1).jpgATAS International offers hairline corners. What are hairline corners you ask? They’re a great alternative to corner cap, corner post or mitered corner details. This detail gives the appearance of a mitered corner using trim pieces with minimal trim exposure. The trim is installed before the panels are installed with a section of the trim at the point of the corner for the panels to butt into.

The panels are miter cut at a 45 degree angle at the ends in our manufacturing facility, so that the panels can nest tightly to the trim piece. It is recommended to use aluminum panels with this detail. While a true mitered corner gives you a great look, it can be quite costly. The hairline corner can give you the same curb appeal as the mitered corner with considerably less cost.
