Perforated metal for transport projects

Perforated metal for transport is just the ticket to help people on their way safely and with style. A key feature of most modern and dynamic transport terminals, perforated metal is the reliable route for many architects and designers for guaranteed project success.

Perforated metal for transport projects is often used as:

Balustrade for passenger safety: Sturdy, strong and durable, perforated metal balustrade is the perfect solution for passenger safety and accessibility. The choice of perforated metal material and finish ensures the balustrade can be customised to withstand the harshest weather conditions including marine harbour environments. Take a look at the custom perforated metal balustrade and screens Arrow Metal produced for Brisbane ferry terminal network.

Ceiling panels for tunnels: Traversing through tunnels is often a necessary part of the journey and perforated metal is an illuminating way to keep pedestrians moving. Perforated metal ceiling panels allow light to shine whilst adding unique architectural style. The perforated metal ceiling panels we created for the Wynyard to Barangaroo walkway were designed to add a sense of flow.

Footbridge and walkways: Custom perforated metal can give a functional footbridge a real wow factor. The architecturally-designed panels Arrow Metal perforated for Oatley train station’s new 50m footbridge are a first-class example. Open perforations on the side panels allow light to stream through whilst smaller perforations on the roof shield passengers in bad weather.
