Sheet metal fabrication is a manufacturing process that shapes a sheet of metal into a specific metal item as desired. This is done through a process called material removal or material deformation. Sheet metal can be shaped into a range of different metal products. It is the most common form of metal-based raw material available.
Raw sheet metal is generally around 0.006 to 0.25 inches thick. Anything thinner than 0.006 inches is considered to be "foil," and any thicker than 0.25 is referred to as a "plate". The thickness of a sheet metal piece is often referred to as its gauge, a number typically ranging from 3 to 38. A higher gauge indicates a thinner piece of sheet metal, with exact dimensions that depend on the material. Some of the most common materials that sheet metals stocks are available in are as follows:
Our full-service sheet metal steel shop is well staffed and equipped to handle both small and large metal orders. With a wide selection of galvanized, pre-painted, and aluminum in stock, we can quickly complete your sheet metal order in Scarborough quickly.
Special order metal requiring other colours or gauges are also available upon request. We can create many unique items to satisfy your home project or job-site needs. Some of the common requests we fill daily include custom flower box liners, window and door trims, water proof pans or trays and ductwork.
Danforth Roofing Supply also maintains a full selection of stock flashings to meet the needs of the roofing industry. Custom styles or sizes are available upon request.
While we always want to maintain the values of the past, we also want to ensure we keep up with the times. In 2010 we acquired a plasma cutter for our sheet metal shop. It increases the speed at which some orders can be completed and allows us to cut some metals in heavier gauges. Our custom ductwork is produced even more efficiently with the help of this machine.
