Throughout the day, the changing angle of the sunlight gives the facade material a different aspect, rendering it one of the most ingenious creation. Equitone Linea facade panels come in large sheet size of 4’x8′ and 4’x10′ (nominal) and can be transformed into any size or shape in the workshop or on site.
