Structural plates are lightweight construction plates made of three-dimensional stainless steel or aluminum. In their initial state, they can be further modified by perforating, bending, welding, or combining them with wood, marble, glass, and other materials to raise their resistance, and can be installed immediately.

The plates can be used to reinforce or structure large surface areas, and their geometry sets up a variety of possibilities for customization. They are multi-functional, and applied in architecture and design to flat, unshaped element areas alternating with structural surfaces. They can also be used for partitions, automotive paneling, and cladding.
