5 key perforated metal benefits
Wood, glass, concrete, brick – architects and designers have a wealth of materials to choose from. But none are quite as multi-tasking as perforated metal. Here are five key benefits of perforated metal and why you should use it in your architecture projects this year:
It looks cool
Perforated metal is one of those materials that makes it easy to create the ‘WOW’ effect. What other material can you completely customise, using personal photographs, drawings or just an image of a pattern you have in mind? Perforated metal can be tooled with almost any shapes and finished with colours or effects for a totally unique product that performs exactly as you need it to.
It also works beautifully for the industrial trend, which is showing no sign of a slow-down. Even the most basic, standard profile adds instant industrial chic.
It feels cool – and sounds cool too
Controlling ventilation, solar heat and shading is a breeze – occupant comfort is one of the main benefits of perforated metal. Carefully-placed perforations can provide privacy and shade whilst maximising airflow and maintaining temperatures, reducing building energy use.
Perforation pattern can also be specified for acoustic performance, for an aesthetically-pleasing sound solution to noise issues in offices, restaurants, shopping centres and schools.
Perforated metal is one of the greenest materials around. It is usually made from steel or aluminium, which is infinitely recyclable. Perforated metal sheets can be made with high recycled content, without affecting performance. At Arrow Metal, all our products are manufactured to strict ISO environmental standards, giving you peace of mind if sustainability is a key project consideration.
Perforated metal is at home in any space – residential, commercial, retail, educational and more. Use it as balustrade or staircase, exterior screening, building facade or just as a decorative touch. Or mix it up and pair it with other materials such as wood or glass, for coveted contrast of textures.
Cost savings is one of the biggest benefits of perforated metal. With careful choice of materials, finish and perforation pattern, there is a solution for even the most limited budget. Controlling costs and saving money when specifying perforated metal is a key concern for many of our clients – the experienced and knowledgeable Arrow Metal team can help you maximise spend, whilst still giving you the results you are looking for.
