“Dress Up” Structural Supports  With  New Móz Designs’ Recycled Aluminum Column Covers

OAKLAND, CA—A new collection of standardized column covers manufactured from recycled aluminum is now available from Móz Designs, an industry leader in decorative aluminum panels for public areas.

Móz column covers are widely used to “dress up” structural supports with vibrant and distinctive aluminum surfacing. Created from 80 percent post-industrial recycled aluminum, Móz column covers contribute to LEED 2.0 MR Credit 4 – recycled content.

A rich array of 25 Móz color tones and 14 hand-etched patterns are featured in the series, along with Móz Blendz, an innovative treatment of blended colors.

Stainless steel with a brushed #4 finish and choice of patterns is also available. DuraFilm surface coatings, available in satin or gloss, act as a barrier in high traffic areas and prevent scuffing or graffiti. Surfaces can also be wiped down with ammonia-based or other institutional cleaners.

Created to complement a site’s design, Móz column covers can enhance the vibrancy – or subtlety – of any installation, depending on the designer’s vision. The Móz color palette offers a versatile selection of tones from exciting Electric Reds and Sapphire Blues to subtle earth shades that include Pewter, Champagne, Goldrush and many more.

Móz’ standard hand-etched patterns offer both Zen-inspired designs, such as Fog and Rain, or casino-parlor pizzazz, featuring dynamic Wave, Ripple and Thunder and Clouds effects.

Column covers are featured in four shapes: round, square, oval and race-track and are constructed from .090-inch aluminum plate or 18-gauge stainless steel.

Standard sizes include 16-inch to 70-inch diameters, which can be installed in two to four sections. Race-track shapes can be accommodated up to 81 inches wide in four sections. State-of-the-art precision rolling allows standard covers to reach up to 12 feet in height. Solid metal vertical open reveals and butt seams are included.

Durable gloss and satin finishes are available for all interiors, high-traffic areas or exteriors.

For highly-custom projects, Móz Designs also offers a limitless selection of options that include custom shapes and thicknesses, custom color matching, perforated aluminum for added effect, recessed capitals and bases and more.

For more information or color and material samples, contact Móz Designs at 510.632.0853. See examples of column cover installations on the Móz website:
