This is AMA

Established in 2012, Architectural Metals Australia (AMA), is extending material design freedom across Australia and New Zealand. AMA import Italian sheet metal designed specifically for architectural applications. At AMA, we offer scope for individuality.

The past 15 years has seen European style cladding and roofing become increasingly popular across Australia and New Zealand. This surge has motivated material suppliers to evolve, ensuring there are specification options, capable of matching architectural trends.

AMA is the brainchild of Victorian based rainwater goods manufacturer, Bayside Flashing & Ventilations Pty Ltd. and sister company, Metal Cladding Systems Pty Ltd. Towards the end of 2011, leadership teams from both businesses began to pool 30 plus years’ of experience. They researched what their local roofing and cladding industry was lacking, to identify potential opportunities to better contribute.

After analysing their own experiences, speaking with peers, installers, builders and design professionals, they discovered quality products were abundant, but material diversity and reliable onshore stock, was void.

Today AMA is a rapidly expanding distribution business. By importing Italian materials, we are able to offer metal intentionally designed for European style cladding and roofing profiles. Most commonly Vestis and Zintek® are specified and folded for standing seam, interlocking, nailstrip and flatlock systems. Vestis and Zintek® have also been applied on custom artistic features and metal work projects.

Our strategic partnerships with key Italian material suppliers, and a trusted local customer network, allows us to offer supported, informed and relevant service – in addition to outstanding aluminium and zinc coils.

For more information on becoming a stockist, purchasing coils, or for specification assistance, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Material Range

Eye catching, unique, like nothing seen before – that’s AMA.

Offering seven pre-painted aluminium products and one zinc, at AMA we provide solutions for those who seek individuality.

Zintek® zinc was AMA’s first product. Its unique etched surface, set an aesthetic and quality precedent for future material selection. The AMA leadership team identified with Zintek’s® high regard for innovation and continual improvement. In 2012, we forged an official distribution partnership with Zintek®.

Zinc offers an incredible natural aesthetic. Easy to work with, Zintek® is a flexible material, suitable for multiple cladding and roofing profiles.

Vestis One, from Mazzonetto Spa, offers three patina look, pre-painted aluminium finishes; Verde, Copper and Grigio. Verde and Copper simulate natural copper aesthetic; capturing and mimicking stages of the material’s ageing process.

In partnership with Mazzonetto Spa, we collaborated to bring Black Graphite to market, extending the Vestis One range. The past twelve months have seen Black Graphite grow to be the most popular Vestis swatch, and one of Australia’s most popular cladding materials.

In addition to these four Vestis finishes, upon request we can import, Testa Di Moro, Natural Aluminium, RAL 9006, RAL 7016, RAL 7037 and RAL 9002 (refer to Vestis brochure for colour swatches).

Vestis Nebula is an exciting development in pre-painted aluminium and the newest addition to the AMA collection. Nebula Storm, Nebula Midnight and Nebula Luna, posses 3D qualities; evoking spectacular material depth and texture.

One of the undeniable advantages of working with pre-painted aluminium, is the reliable consistency of colour and appearance. The coil coating process is able to replicate identical finishes across different batches.

Our collection is always growing. If there’s a colour or aesthetic you require, contact us to discuss custom colour production.
