Corrugated Metal’s roots come from New York, so we were honored to provide our services for this project. We worked with a local New York supplier by roll forming Zinc flat sheets into 2.67 x 7/8 sinewave profile. Since zinc has a soft temper, it can be tricky to form. CMI's production team worked endlessly to perfect the panels. Sinewave profile panels are used throughout the building as exterior siding as well as wall cladding.

South Street Seaport is a historic area in New York City. The original Pier 17 was torn down in 2014 as part of broader redevelopment of the neighborhood. The new pier containing retail, restaurants, and a rooftop performance venue is set to open this summer.

The picture below was taken by Tribeca Citizen, a local website that provides guidance to locals in regards to new shops, restaurants, and real estate. They had an opportunity to visit the project before it opens.

Arched Zinc Panels

Have you thought about using Zinc for your next project, but were skeptical of the outcome?

Zinc is widely used in Europe and it’s growing in popularity in the United States. Recently, Corrugated Metals Inc. provided roll forming and arching services to Metalmaster Roofmaster, McHenry, IL, for a project in Chicago. We formed zinc coil into 2.67 x 7/8 sinewave profile and arched the panels to a specific radius. The zinc coil formed with ease and provided a sharp looking panel.

The corrugated panels were used for the awning that serves as protection for the Café’s customers who like to enjoy the outdoors.


Colectivo is located in the heart of historic Lincoln Park at 2530 N Clark Street. The location offers a patio with an outdoor firepit. If you’re in the area, stop by and check out the awning by Corrugated Metals!
