Pressed Tin Panels® is an Australian family owned and operated business, that has been in operation since 1999. We specialise in the reproduction of the Wunderlich Pressed Metal products that were originally produced from the late 1800’s to the cease of production in the 1950’s.
The Sydney based production company was established by Ernest Wunderlich and specialised in the production of thousands of varied decorative panels, cornices, ceiling roses and architectural features. We are proud to be able to be involved in the reproduction of these original Wunderlich masterpieces.
Pressed Tin Panels® founder Gordon Hallahan established his first business, GH Sheetmetal in 1972. Gordon has since trained his son Scott in this field as well as being trained as 1st Class Sheetmetal Worker and patternmaker. Scott has since taken over GH Sheetmetal.
Gordon was trained under the guiding hand of Jenkins Tinsmiths, which dates back to 1904. In 1999, in conjunction with his children Racquel, Scott and Renee, the business Pressed Tin Panels® was established with Racquel as Managing Director.
In the year 2016, some internal structural changes within the company have taken place with Racquel becoming the main shareholder. Gordon is beginning to enjoy retirement whilst still being available when the need arises. These days, modern technology combines with Gordon’s time-honoured techniques in the manufacture of Wunderlich’s heritage designs.
At Pressed Tin Panels® our products are of an extremely high quality. With the use of a special grade of aluminium, we pride ourselves in being able to achieve a high standard of pattern impression and panel design consistency and accuracy. This allows for ease of installation and the ability to match the original Wunderlich panels with our reproduced panels.
We are able to reproduce any original Wunderlich design, from an appropriate sample, to allow for historic restoration projects. Existing designs are often being used throughout Australia and the world in many applications.
We have over 100 year’s of combined experience, allowing us to have extensive knowledge associated with many areas of building, residential and commercial projects, historical restoration, design and reproduction advice. With this experience and access to our varied backgrounds we strive to provide the highest quality service and product information available.
