SAF-Extruded-CorniceArchitectural Designer Series Extruded Cornice from SAF

Sanford, NC – March 10, 2009 – Beautiful aluminum cornice moulding extrusions are now available from SAF-Perimeter Systems.  The Designer Series Extruded Cornice Mouldings provide precision joints, exceptionally sharp, crisp lines, and more refined detail than formed products.

The new extruded line is part of SAF-Perimeter Systems Designer Series Cornices and may be used for both new construction and historic renovations. No special methods and tools required for installation. A unique, Inter-Locking Profile feature makes any cornice profile within the series interchangeable for almost unlimited classical cornice design options.

Rather than overlapping like wood, stone, or synthetic cornice materials, a securely locked seam between the new SAF-Perimeter Systems mouldings makes them very water resistant.

The Extruded Cornices also feature concealed fastening flanges that eliminate unsightly pop rivets or exposed screws and allow for joints that permit either a “Cast Stone” or  “Traditional Seamless Wood Cornice” look.

For installation, Designer Series Extruded Cornice Mouldings are available with mounting gussets designed to form fit SAF extruded profiles, offering many benefits over conventional framing, including;

  • Elimination of expensive wood framing, sheathing, and labor
  • More precise attachment
  • Reduction of field dimensions verification
  • Reduction or elimination of special trades for installation
  • Exceptional resistance to the elements
  • Reduced fire risk
  • Improved thermal movement control

Designer Series Extruded Cornice mouldings are available in eight (8) interchangeable profiles along with starter sills and top closures. Standard lengths are 8’, 10’ & 12’.  Custom lengths up to 20’ may be special ordered. Available colors include any of the SAF 56 EZ Mix Color Coatings, or  custom colors are available on special order.

The new Designer Series Extruded Cornice mouldings along with other SAF aluminum extrusions, sheet, column covers and panel systems for architectural specification will be exhibited at AIA (American Institute of Architects) Convention April 30 – May 2, 2009, Southern Aluminum Finishing (SAF) Exhibitor Booth 6710.
