‘Project Creator’ includes structural guidance, live quoting, and customizing control for architects

Denver, Colo. – May 18, 2018 – Parasoleil has created a new powerful online tool for customizing architectural panels with decorative patterns. Any metal shop can cut patterns in metal, but specifying a system of panels that contractors won’t value-engineer out of every project is another task. Project Creator already takes a wide range of structural integrity, variable lead-times, project costs, and fastening systems into account in order to put as much control in the user’s hands.
Without the Project Creator, a designer would need to create a custom pattern to avoid copyright violations, specify the right metal and thickness to ensure panel rigidity, determine a span for structural supports that meet building requirements, find a lasting finish for each of the parts, and cost the whole package with the lead-times to meet project demands. Parasoleil built this platform not only to allow the ease of decorative panel specification but to ensure that the company stands behind its project guidance, lead-times, and product integrity, as well as its branded reputation for decorative perforated panels for privacy screens, shade, railings, and exterior facade cladding.
Parasoleil has the widest range of architectural patterns in the industry. In offering the Project Creator on its website, the company has shortened the design time for most projects down to how long it takes for the owner to make up their mind. “That’s one thing we don’t have control over,” says Tanner Flynn, VP of Operations at Parasoleil. “But the architect or design-build contractor can simply click to share their specified design with the owner so they can see it and change the pattern without ever seeing wholesale pricing.”
After their 2017 recognition by the Colorado Advanced Manufacturing Alliance for Top Advancer in Manufacturing, Parasoleil is proud of the newest addition to its innovative product offering and series of project tools. To see how the Project Creator works, click here.
Parasoleil’s vision is to offer helpful tools to in using pattern to create spaces where people want to be. They have three categories of projects that range from in-stock panels that ship immediately to full project partnership from design to final installation.
