Decorative perforated metal: Design ideas and expertise for your project

Decorative perforated metal has no limits to its design. Thanks to modern tooling technology, perforations of any shape can be punched into metal sheets.

From sweeping curves to angular geometric holes, even the most intricate and complex architectural design can be accurately created through CAD drawing and computer-controlled software for precise perforation.

Choosing a bespoke design for decorative perforated metal

If perforated metal sheets are for decorative use only, appearance rather than practicality is the priority. But there are still considerations to be made in choice of metal material, profile and finish.

If a design is especially complex and closely-spaced, this will dictate the choice of metal material and profile to ensure the perforation pattern can actually be achieved and the product fit for purpose. Interior or exterior location also affects the finish, for colour retention and weather resistance.

Our team of experts at Arrow Metal will advise which material and profile is best suited for your decorative perforated metal design, suggesting any design tweaks as needed.

How decorative perforated metal is made

Once we have your approved design, our skilled technicians create CAD drawings that show a true, real-life representation of how the finished decorative perforated metal panels will look. At this stage we can make any further changes you need to give you the perfect result.

Controlled by state-of-the-art computer software, our punching machinery then perforates the metal to exactly match the CAD drawings.
