Curious. I want to wrap stainless steel around the interior of my ceiling could you recommend a product that would work for this. It would actually be holding in place nautical rope that would also wrap the ceiling. Thanks

Dearest. Either it is stainless or a laminate with an aluminum layer that looks like stainless. Do you have a local stainless fab shop? They could put you into a very thin sheet stock for less weight and less moola. Chemetal is a company that makes metal laminates (like Formica but with aluminum as the top layer). They have many interesting finishes to consider that will convey the "idea" of stainless but for less money. Perhaps, like the ye olde stamped ceiling tiles, there is likely a modern equivalent like an Armstrong ceiling product. Totally guessing here. Time to Google.

How high your ceiling is, how wide the band of stainless you are planning or are you looking to cover the whole area?, will you have seams (likely) and how they are planned for, is it applied in it's thinness to the drywall/plaster or is there a break or lip to it to give the stainless a "thickness?, the need to glue it so that you are not exposing screw heads or do you want screw heads as a design feature?, all these and more...so many, many questions. I love Houzz and our community but we need to chat directly for me to feel like I've been any help at all.

Hi Musicmom, and thanks for the questions. Listen, I can't remember the gauge exactly but it was much thicker than we normally use since we were not "turning down" the metal to make a front edge but rather just exposing the thickness of the metal as the edge, with no bending. I think it was so very close to 1/8" thick. The finish is our fabricators standard, so I have forgotten that technical spec as well and just end up getting their standard linear brush finish. We did that project years ago, is my only excuse for weak memory, or at least that is what I'd like you all to believe.

That is the funny thing about stainless steel. It is extremely tough and durable and yet it is also easily scratched. So what you often see when looking at a stainless steel countertop or sink is a multitude in this amount of scratches which create their own patina that is related but somewhat different from the pristine perfect leave brushed surfaces that you often see on vertical surfaces like an appliance.
