Borit of Germany develops and produces building materials out of transformed sheets of a wide selection of metals. Therefore Borit uses the Hydroform technique, where water pressure is used for forming. This method enables very precise shaping, even with complex geometries. Small series of custom designs are also possible and cost efficient.

Borit developed a new kind of board core for different applications which ask for a combination of lightness and stiffness. The inventive shape of the sheets makes it possible to stack them very close to each other. This results in a relatively thin sheet with the constructional properties of a space frame. The sheets can be made out of different metals to assure the combination with the finishing layer. The structures are octagonal or hexagonal.
