Diamond Metal Screens' perforated metal sunscreens have the dual advantage of permitting the passage of light while also obstructing harsh light. This key feature helps control daylight entering an enclosed space while also maintaining the air temperature at a comfortable level. The sunscreens are used in both exterior and interior spaces and add a contemporary element to any project.

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.
