If you’re researching perforated metal sheet suppliers, here’s some FAQs all about how we can help with your project, including ways we can potentially save you money on your perforated metal costs.
What types of perforated metal does Arrow Metal produce?
We perforate many different types of metals. Your options include aluminium, stainless steel, mild steel, pre-galvanised steel, Galvanneal and brass. Which type of metal you choose for your project depends on end usage, performance requirements – like strength and light filtration – and any environmental conditions at the project’s location. Such as sea water for coastal buildings and wind speed for tall buildings. We can advise which metal is best together with any additional finishes that may be required.
What sort of applications can your perforated metal panels be used for?
Architects commonly use our perforated metal as building facade, cladding, shutters, balustrade and balconies. For interiors, designers use it for decorative dividers, as privacy screening, residential fencing and interior staircases. It’s also used by artists to create pieces and pictures, such as the floral wall art Chatswood Interchange. The applications for our perforated metal are virtually endless, as you can match the perforated metal design and performance to project requirements and add interest with colours and effects.

How do I order a custom perforated metal design?
It’s easy to get started if you have your own perforated metal design. Have a chat to our team in the first instance to check that your design is possible. We’ll advise if there needs to be any adaptions, once we understand the performance or finished look you want to achieve. We’ll then work closely with you to make sure your design is feasible.
We’ll create a CAD drawing and provide metal samples, so you know exactly how your finished panels will look and fit together before manufacture. Take a look at some of the custom perforated metal projects we’ve worked on to see the designs we can create. Such as Nolan’s Transport branded signage for their new Sydney hub. And Wayside Chapel’s entrance, where their motto was reproduced in metal. Or Narellan Town Centre play area, which has trains and trees perforated in vibrant red metal.
