    Large Collection of Finishes

    Fortina louvers and slats come in over 100 wood-like finishes that look and feel like the real thing. This effect is due to the extremely durable, non-PVC film that wraps Fortina’s aluminum extrusions. What’s more, some of the finishes mimic wood species that are rare to find in the built environment.

Thoughts Behind the Design

Fortina can trace its lineage back to an innovation the Japanese printing company Toppan made in the 1970s. Although the company got its start in the early 20th century printing paper money, by the mid-century they had expanded to interior design elements.

The company figured out how to reproduce the look of authentic wood grain on printed materials by buying pieces of timber, slicing them open, and photographing the exposed grain with a process camera. They then would print the images on to adhesive films for near limitless applications. This process improves on natural wood by removing troublesome knots. It is even possible to magnify or rotate the grain.

Toppan wrapped its film finishes around proprietary aluminum louvers and slats to create Fortina. The result is a real wood substitute that is consistently beautiful and budget friendly. Fortina dramatically enhances environments with the look and feel of real wood without the complications of wood’s heavy weight, expensive specifications, wasteful extraction, and difficult installation and maintenance.
