Linetec returns to the Association of Licensed Architects (ALA) Midwest Architecture Conference. This year’s event will be held Oct. 29 at the Drury Lane Conference Center in Oakbrook Terrace, just outside of Chicago.

Representatives from Linetec will be in booth #308 in the expo hall from 10 a.m.-3:45 p.m. Visitors to Linetec’s booth can see and touch our newest specialty finishing options for aluminum:

  • Wood Grain finishes – Offering the beauty of wood without the maintenance, we recently added Aged Light Oak and Aged Dark Oak to our Gold Series Palette of wood grain finishes for architectural aluminum products. These new patterns, present the look and feel of weathered or reclaimed wood, increasing Linetec’s offering to 16 standard wood grain options.NovaSign-aged-oakwood-grain
  • New Bordeaux Anodize – Expanding our proprietary finishes for architectural aluminum products, we proudly introduce Bordeaux Anodize. As the name describes, the hue leans toward rich burgundy tones. Using inorganic tin and copper metals in the anodizing process a unique, bold, earthy finish is created.Bordeaux anodize by Linetec
