Imagine you are taking measurements for your next project, but the dimensions are going to require you to order a lot of waste material. It is unfortunate, but what can you do? Metal sheets only come in a couple of width options, right? You probably have this assumption because most metal composite materials (MCM) manufacturers only offer sheets in one or two widths.
But at Fairview, we understand the benefits of having more options and flexibility when it comes to metal sheet widths. We work with many fabricators and have realized that it is better to offer a larger variety of sheet widths for them to choose from. A wider variety of widths makes sourcing for individual project needs easier, optimizes material usage, and reduces both waste and cost. Who doesn’t love the sound of that?
What sheet widths does Fairview offer?
We love the sound of that! That’s why we currently offer three standard sheet widths:
• 39 inches,
• 49.2 inches
• 62 inches wide
• We can also accommodate custom sheet widths up to 78 inches wide.
Offering more sheet widths enables fabricators to take their material optimization to the next level and be more successful with every job.
What does ordering custom sheet widths with Fairview look like?
So, that all sounds great…but what does this look like in practice? Let’s imagine you’re a fabricator who is looking to place a custom order with Fairview.
You take the measurements for your project, and it turns out that the unfolded panel dimensions for your project are about 51 inches wide. At first, you might think that this sounds like a challenge. But not if you’re working with Fairview!
You call our customer success line. Our team of dedicated professionals will tell you that for this project, we can produce a custom panel for your project that is 52 inches wide. This is significantly closer to your needed dimensions than the industry standard of 62-inch-wide panels.
This is great news! The ability to use this custom sheet width saves about 10 inches of material waste and a lot of money in your budget.
