Perforated metal sheets by Diamond Metal Screens act as excellent supporting elements for enclosures. Low fabrication costs, ease of assembly, see-through elements, customisable design patterns and contemporary aesthetics are some of the reason architects and designers choose perforated metal sheets for use in balustrades.
Perforated metal screens can be applied to both external and internal balustrades. From lightweight decorative elements to load-bearing structural components, perforated metal offers unique opportunities to combine strength, functionality and beauty.
Perforated metal's functionality in light filtration and air circulation as well as its recyclable attributes make it a sustainable solution for various architectural purposes. This further helps a project earn LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) points. In addition, perforated metal can contain as much as 100% recycled materials while showing no decline in quality compared to non-recyclable materials. It can also significantly reduce energy consumption - a versatile product, perforated metal can be used for exterior shades and sunscreens to filter natural light and maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. This reduces the need for HVAC systems to consume more energy than necessary to control indoor temperature.
Perforations are possible in the following materials: Stainless Steel, Pre-Galvanised Steel, Copper, Brass, Zinc, Aluminium and CRCA / HR Steel.
The shapes that can be perforated are:
