Decorative Perforated Metal Sheet Showcase
Decorative perforated metal sheet is one of the most rewarding products for our team to make at Arrow Metal. It offers the best of both worlds – creative flexibility and flair when it comes to the pattern, and outstanding performance and function too.
If you’re creating your own design, you can specify intricate and complex perforation styles. Or, you can opt for a design that’s from our made-to-order range, many of which are available in decorative brass. Including P610 – a contemporary geometric pattern of closely-spaced hexagons. Or take a look at P368 – ultra-thin, modern round end slots that look amazing in aluminium.
The design opportunities of decorative perforated metal sheet are extensive. And for our team, incredibly fulfilling to manufacture, as we see your design go from initial creation to installation. Here’s an overview of our decorative perforated metal capabilities, design tips and how you can use it in your projects:
What is decorative perforated metal sheet used for?
Because this type of perforated metal is focused on aesthetics and appearance, it’s most commonly used when you need to make an impact. That’s why architects and designers often use it for building cladding, decorative facade, signage, privacy screening, room dividers and wall art.
Decorative perforated metal sheet design tips
When it comes to the design of decorative perforated metal sheet, if you can imagine it, there’s a good chance we can make it. Our state-of-the-art machinery in our NSW factory uses advanced tooling and CAD software to make all customised and bespoke designs. All you need to do is draw up your own pattern – choosing the shapes, open area percentage, margins and more – and we’ll do the rest. Or even give us a photograph, and we’ll replicate it in perforated metal.
If you’re picking a pattern from our made-to-order range, remember we can add customisation with colours and finishes. It’s a great way to get decorative perforated metal sheet that looks bespoke, for a lower cost than creating your own design.
When you’re creating a pattern for decorative perforated metal sheet, here are some things to consider:
- We can work with your own CAD drawing file or a JPEG file if that’s the basis of your design. If you’re using a photo or illustration, ideally it needs to be black and white. Our project for Di Emme studio for Chatswood Interchange started with JPEG photos. We transformed each picture into CAD drawings, to create the beautiful floral-patterned perforated metal plaques you see on the station’s pillars.
- We’ll suggest any modifications or changes that need to be made to your design, to ensure you get the end result you’re looking for. We’ll advise the best solution to make your design a reality, that doesn’t compromise its creativity and performance. We take into account panel joins and location factors, so your decorative perforated metal looks as good as you imagine when installed.
- We can include words in your design if you want to include text too. Take a look at our facade project at Cowper Street development in Granville, which features lines of poetry and a mural.
- We can perforate a single sheet with different shapes, for a unique and bespoke perforation pattern. Like we did at Hazelbrook Train Station walkway, which features a series of unusual geometric shapes on each panel.
