Kikukawa has the expertise to provide extra large high-quality mirror polished stainless steel panels. The following pictures are from the quality inspection conducted on a mirror-polished panel over 1500mm(W) x 5000mm(L), its high-quality and flatness apparent from the beautiful reflection.
Typically, extra-wide or extra-large mirror polished stainless steel panels are provided in thicker sheets with cut-edge panel details, to ensure the high-quality of the finish. The difficulty comes from the quality of the metal sheet material, as sheets over 2mm tend to have pores, and this tendency increases with larger sized sheets. Additionally, larger panels are proportionally heavier, requiring more time, people and care during handling.
At Kikukawa, these difficulties have been addressed, overcome and accumulated as know-how. We share our quality control expertise with the material providers and the polishers to ensure the high-quality of the panels.
Kikukawa was entrusted for our commitment to high-quality and to the design requirements to fabricate the bespoke mirror-polished panels for an overseas project in Lithuania. The mirror-polished panels will form the exterior walls and the roof.
Exterior wall panels – 5mm thick sheets of SUS304, the largest being 1810mm (W) x 6440mm(L) in size will be lined vertically to form a 13m high four-sided exterior wall.
Roof panels – 5mm thick sheets of SUS304, the largest being 1750mm(W) x 7990mm(L) in size. The 14 panels will form a 240㎡ roof.
Please note that projects with stainless steel panels over the market-available metal sheet sizes require considerations such as procurement period and minimum order quantity. Please consult us for more information.
