Kauffman Stadium Gets New Perforated Metal Skin

Kauffman Stadium architects chose McNICHOLS® Perforated Metal to modernize the architecture of the building with an attractive functional skin.

Kauffman Stadium, home of the Kansas City Royals, opened in 1973. The original non-enclosed, open air stadium recently underwent a complete renovation. The new stadium, debuting in 2010, showed off a massive curtain wall wrapping the front side of the building. The 345 feet of curtainwall is made of glass and metal panels 52 feet in height. The metal panels at the top, sides and bottom were made of McNICHOLS® Aluminum Perforated Metal. The architects chose Perforated Metal to modernize the architecture of the building with an attractive functional skin. The project required 50 different sizes of the panels. The Perforated sheets were individually cut-to-size to fit within the aluminum channels or mullions.
