Perforated Metal Hole Patterns
Marco stocks and fabricates a wide variety of perforated metal that have very different hole patterns and openings. Each have their own benefits and specific applications. The following are the three most common:
Round Holes: Round hole perforated metal is the most popular pattern type because of it’s versatility and broad selection of gauges, diameters and material choices for customization. No matter what kind of project you need perforated metal for, this pattern can be custom punched to fit your exact sizes and specifications.
Square Holes: The square hole patterned perforated metal from Marco Specialty Steel is aesthetically pleasing and works well in architectural applications. Even though the square holes allow more material or air to pass through, this kind of perforated metal is still sturdy and easy to maintain. Perforated square hole patterns are available in straight line or staggered.
Slotted Holes: Slotted holes are more oblong and look like an oval or rectangle when they are custom-punched. Slotted hole perforated metal is designed specifically for materials and airflow to pass through without making the metal less reliable and sturdy. This pattern type is very flexible and can be formed into unique shapes.
