Decorative Perforated Metal Offers the Ideal Combination of Form and Function
While perforated metal can serve a huge variety of valuable functions, it can also be used for decorative purposes. Simply by altering the shape of the die used to punch the holes in the metal, it is relatively easy to create a hole shape in a wide range of decorative patterns. This enables you to enhance the appearance of the finished product and make it more attractive to your customers.

Custom Decorative Perforated Metal Solutions Are Also Available
If we don’t have a decorative pattern that fits your vision we can custom punch any pattern. Our customization capabilities include providing a hole size for your decorative perforated metal screens or panels other than our stock round, square or slotted offerings. If you’re not happy with a standard straight-line or staggered hole pattern, we can create just about any hole configuration you desire. We can adjust the open area percentage of the sheet to accommodate numerous material types.
We’ll work closely with you to develop a custom solution that meets your unique manufacturing requirements.
What Are the Benefits of Using Decorative Perforated Metal?
In addition to its decorative value, ornamental perforated metal is extremely lightweight and durable. It’s highly versatile, allowing you to use it for multiple applications. You can choose from numerous corrosion-resistant materials such as stainless steel, carbon steel and aluminum, ensuring the maximum longevity of the product.
What’s more, you can choose a style that provides the amount of open area that meets your requirements. For instance, you can select ornamental perforated metal panels in a Standard Octagon style with an open area of 35 percent or a Hexagon style with a much larger open area of 79 percent.
Decorative perforated metal can also give your business a competitive edge. By being able to tailor the designs and improve the appearance and functionality of your products, you’ll gain an advantage over other companies in your market. The energy-efficient properties of decorative perforated metal panels and screens make the architects’ jobs easier by allowing them to incorporate energy-saving features into their building designs. And all forms of perforated metal provide an environmentally-friendly solution that minimizes resource depletion and promotes sustainability.
