More about this product

Perforated metal is a valued element in architecture and construction because of its versatility in terms of design aesthetics and its structurally strong properties, making it a better alternative for applications in a wide range of industries.

Some of its key advantages are:

  • High resistance to enviromental elements
  • Low fabrication cost
  • Increases acoustic performance
  • Lightweight (easy mounting to a variety of indoor and outdoor surfaces)
  • Aesthetically appealing
  • Physically strong

Diamond Metal Screens' frames use galvanised steel to prevent rust while a thoughtfully designed facade system ensures ease of assembly on-site and hassle-free maintenance.

Perforated metal screens can be specified for facades in external applications as well as in interior design projects to create see-through partitions or sound-absorbing surfaces. From lightweight decorative elements to load-bearing structural components, perforated metal offers unique opportunities to combine strength, functionality and beauty.

Additionally, Diamond Metal Screens' perforated facades enable interior spaces to benefit from natural light, filtered in such a way that it reduces the glare of direct sunlight and resulting in an environment that is conducive to relaxation and working. Whether used internally or externally, perforations create a dialogue between space, obscuring or inviting views as required and keeping temperature and brightness at a pleasant and practical level. Shade and privacy will continue to be the key practical purposes of perforations, but the potential applications are greater than ever.

Sustainability

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.

Materials

Perforations are possible in the following materials: Stainless Steel, Pre-Galvanised Steel, Copper, Brass, Zinc, Aluminium and CRCA / HR Steel.

Perforations

The shapes that can be perforated are:

Round
Square
Conical
Rectangular
