What do Period Details sell?

Period Details are Melbourne’s premier stockist of Australian made Pressed Metal Panels.  Our Pressed Metal in made from mill grade aluminium and can be used on walls and ceilings both internally and externally. Pressed Metal is fantastic used as a kitchen splashback. Once pressed the sheets are dipped in a “non-chromate” solution. This means they are ready to prime/seal/undercoat (eg. Dulux 1 step) and then to top-coat. When painting, just cut in a roll as you would a plaster wall/ceiling. Alternatively you can powdercoat the sheets with Dulux Duralloy, Alphatec, Precious Pearl or Electro ranges. Powdercoating is the best option for kitchen splashbacks.

Period Details hold many patterns of Pressed Metal in stock and we would love to help you with any questions that you have. If you send us a photo of the area (if available) and plans – a sketch is fine – we can calculate how many sheets you will need.

Period Details stock an extensive range of electrical switches and timber blocks in: Victorian, Federation, Tudor/Bungalow, Art Deco and modern designs.  Timber blocks are available in raw pine, undercoated MDF and a Cedar Stain.  Switches are available in Polished Brass, Aged Brass,  Florentine Bronze, Non Relief Bronze, Black Bronze, Bright Chrome and Satin Chrome.  They can be supplied with a Matt or Gloss varnish.
