Keep building cool with perforated metal
Summer’s finally here – and as temperatures rise there’s no hotter way to keep buildings cool in both comfort and style than with perforated metal.
A perforated metal façade is the perfect architectural and sustainable solution to interior climate control in intense temperatures.
Keeping occupants comfortable is a breeze thanks to the natural ventilation of perforated metal, whilst the sheer choice of perforation pattern means there’s endless creative design opportunities too, for a building that looks as good as it feels.
The heat is on: How perforated metal performs to keep buildings cool
There’s no doubt that perforated metal has some cool abilities – and it’s all thanks to its perforations and what it’s made of.
By choosing the right metal material, hole size, shape, pitch and open area percentage, a perforated metal façade enables precise control of light and airflow, whilst also deflecting heat and solar radiation from the sun.
Carefully-designed perforations also mean building occupants benefit from shade and privacy without it affecting any landscape views.
A sustainable solution
With a choice of materials ranging from fully-recyclable steel to aluminium and finishes for increased durability, perforated metal façades are a cost-effective and environmentally-friendly way to keep buildings cool and warm all year round.
Demand on air-conditioning systems is reduced in summer, whilst its heat-retaining properties help keep buildings warm in winter.
