Developed by the same team of experts that perfected FOLIA™,  the  ALTO™ process has been refined over the past 13 years into a uniquely durable, eco-responsible and vibrant aluminum surface material.

Our proprietary dye-sublimation process infuses powder-coated aluminum with any high-resolution digital image resulting in a seamless, continuous image on flat, textured, perforated and three-dimensional surfaces.

 

Thanks to the quality of inks and durability of our powder coats, ALTO™ Aluminum panels and signs are trusted by designers, architects and organizations around the world.

SIGNS

Southwest Borough Historical Panels 

Montreal, Canada

Signs throughout this former industrial area in the southwest of Montreal use evocative texts and archival images to illustrate neighbourhood’s past. 

 

The monochromatic green signs are subtle yet attractive visual points of interest at various sites in the borough. Mounted on weathered steel bases, these ALTO™ signs are displayed at an angle for easy reading. 

 

The panels feature wrapped graphics for a perfectly finished edge that eliminates the need for framing. For long-term durability, signs were installed using anti-vandal hardware and the powder-coating process ensures the signs resist weather and sun damage.

PUBLIC ART

MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility

Salem, OR

2020 SEGD Merit Award in Placemaking & Identity

Six original pieces bring remarkable color and an inspiring message to the exterior walls of this youth correctional facility.

 

Painted in the artist’s studio, then fused into powder-coated ALTO™, the murals become a part of the architecture.

 

The material was chosen for its durability and resistance to the highly-humid environment of Oregon.

MURALS - FACADES

Los Nietos Library

Los Angeles, CA

Hundreds of individual leaves in a rainbow of hues flow into a colorful mural above the heads of visitors to the Los Nietos Public Library. The leaves are an artistic homage to a beloved tree on library grounds and speak to the deep roots of the community.

 

ALTO™ powder-coated aluminum leaves stand out from the façade to cast dynamic shadows that change throughout the day. The strong California sun will not fade the leaves, which will stay vibrant for years to come.

BRANDED EXPERIENCES

Budweiser

EIGHTEEN|76 Tables

To complete the full brand experience in Budweiser|76 venues around the U.S., PGAV used ALTO™ tables with the Budweiser logo. The material is scratch-resistant and can be maintained with both common and industrial-strength cleaning solutions.

 

It is the ideal material for a high-traffic restaurant environment serving beverages and food. Graphics are crisp and colors won’t fade despite heavy use.

TESTIMONIALS

PGAV Destinations

Since this project would be within reach of tens of thousands of fans every home game, the graphic panels needed to be extremely durable and long-lasting. The panels also needed to reproduce the inductee portraits, text, and color in a clear, high-quality way. ALTO was the ideal choice for these reasons.

Artist Louise Griffin trusted us to make her beautiful proyect

Louise Griffin, Artist

When creating public art, especially an exterior piece, there are a lot of additional requirements around durability, fading and manufacturer’s warranty. Not only does the Alto product hold up to the harshest weather conditions but SH provides one of the best warranties in the profession AND you do not have to sacrifice beauty or design. I love the Alto product. Unlike solid powder coating, Alto can provide a completely custom design filled with a rainbow of bright and intense colors. You create the artwork, submit your high resolution image and the finished product is as bright and beautiful as your digital artwork.

We have finished the inspection and post-painted assembly on the 4 projects… all looked great.  At the end of the 4 projects, we had over 2000 image panels with no rejects! Nice job and thanks for expediting this order ahead of the original lead-time.
