• Credit 4.1 Recycled Content. The recycled content of an American Metalcraft Inc.panel systems in aluminum is significantly higher than that of panel system made with steel. The total recycled content of domestically produced, flat rolled aluminum used for the manufacture of American Metalcraft panel systems is estimated at approximately 80%. The recycled content (40 % of the total content) comes from post-consumer and post-industrial sources.
• Credit 4.2 Recycled Content. Due to the superior recycled Content of American Metalcraft Inc. panels (greater than 20%) they can qualify for an additional LEED® point under Credit 4.2.
Additional LEED® points could be awarded for the use of American Metalcraft Inc. panels in other categories depending upon the location of the project and the design and construction process. It is therefore, important when assessing the potential contribution of American Metalcraft Inc. panels to the LEED® rating of a project to gain the most information possible at the earliest opportunity. Not only does the aluminum used in the building and construction industry contain a high percentage of both post-consumer and post-industrial recycled content, at the end of its long, useful life in your building application it is 100% recyclable. Aluminum building components can be repeatedly recycled back into similar products with no loss of quality, and aluminum in its various forms provides the most valuable component for most municipal recycling efforts. Aluminum products have the highest level of long term performance, are weather, stain and impact resistant, offer uniform quality and are non-combustible.

We enjoy creating custom interior work because the level of fit and finish is so exacting. Interior elements at a pedestrian level give AMI a chance to demonstrate our exacting standards.
AMI fabricates plate panel systems from either aluminum or stainless steel. The panels are solid metal and are designed to meet your specific need. We also mix materials to help you make the best use of your project budget. For example, if you require a metallic look, we can use finished stainless steel at the pedestrian level and painted aluminum where the public won’t be able to notice the difference.
Sunscreens and Grills
AMI fabricates sunscreens and grilles from aluminum and stainless steel. Aside from adding visual interest to the exterior envelope of your building, sunscreens and grills can reduce the heat load. Grilles, in particular, can play an important role in securing parking garages, loading docks and mechanical areas. For example, many parking decks use an egg crate grill in the first few floors of the deck to prevent anyone from gaining access without passing through a security check point. There are so many ways to customize grills and sunscreens to give your building a unique aesthetic and beauty.
