Most popular perforated metal & wire mesh
What’s hot in the world of perforated metal right now? Knowing what’s a top-seller is a good place to start for metal material inspiration. Here’s a run-down of some of Arrow Metal’s most popular perforated metal and wire mesh designs, and some of the amazing, on-trend ways they’ve been used:
Profiles WOB-9516 & WOB-9516D: Brass wire mesh
Brass is one metal that’s showing no sign of slipping down the popular perforated metal and wire mesh charts.
With a warm hue that’s richer than gold, it’s the perfect material when you want to add a touch of old-school vintage glamour to interiors.
Perforated metal can be finished with a brass-effect gold coating for a cost-effective and oh-so-chic look; whilst brass wire mesh is the real deal for effortless styling.
So it’s no surprise that not one but two brass wire mesh profiles are in our best-sellers list. WOB-9516 and its double-wire duplicate WOB-9516 were the perfect duet for restoring the historic Victorian lifts at Sydney’s iconic QVB Building. Both these profiles are ready to ship as panels or rolls.
Profile P244: Round-hole perforated metal
Round-hole has long been the most popular perforated metal profile and it’s not hard to see why the simple circle is one of the top favourites.
A universally-appealing shape for almost any type of project, round-hole perforated metal might look basic but it’s actually one of the strongest patterns that we can punch.
Profile P244 features 9.5mm diameter holes in a staggered arrangement, making it ideal for privacy and visibility. It’s why this profile was specified at Gosford Hospital, for its new staff walkway. P244 is so popular it’s an in-stock product that we always have ready to go.
Profile P376: Round-end slot perforated metal
A recent entry into the on-trend chart is the round-end slot. A rectangle with curved ends, it’s a soft and stylish solution when you want a shape with a bit more edge.
One of the best things about this pattern is the flexibility. Create a mesh-type transparent sheet or go big and bold – it all depends on the open area percentage you specify.
Profile P376 maintains the privacy of studying students whilst filtering light and air, meeting wind resistance criteria without compromising the building’s amazing, award-winning architecture.
Profile P610: Hexagon perforated metal
Honeycomb pattern P610 is a sweet addition to our most popular perforated metal list. Hexagonal holes have made a real buzz in the architecture and design world thanks to their attention-grabbing geometric style that leaves much of the sheet as open space.
You’ll see profile P610 enveloping the windows of the Golston jewellery store at Westfield Sydney. Installed as a lightbox effect, the hexagonal perforated metal was finished in brass to match the branding, with the pattern filtering the perfect amount of light for maximum sparkle and shine.
