The Wonderful Things That Holes Can Do

As consumers, we are not given much to wonder about the work that holes do for us. But, for the product designer or architect, holes in sheet metal can provide the perfect solution to a multi-faceted design problem.

Perforated sheet metal is seen as an ideal material by many in our industry due to its endless uses. More and more, sheet metal is being used for screens, partitions and guards, with holes being punched into the metal to better the design. Not only can perforating the sheet metal make it more visually appealing, it can also help to reduce the weight of the metal, improve ventilation, cover façade insulation, and assist in sun protection. These features of perforated metal set it apart from other materials which cannot be customised and produced as easily, or as cost-effectively.

The metal façade on the GGA West offices in Zurich which is pictured below highlights these endless design options and uses of perforated metal. The trapezoidal corrugated metal on the building has unique perforations to enable façade cladding, and also to act as blinds and as a means of protection against the sun. Moreover, the façade has used shaped sheets of perforated metal to provide a contrast to large windows.

Similarly to the GGA West façade designers, we can create custom perforations specific to your needs. We use our turret punch to create custom made screening with either geometric patterns or more expressive artistic designs. We have an array of patterns and tooling on hand to fulfil all of your project requirements. Basic or complex, standard or custom, we offer perforation patterns to suit any decorative or functional requirement.
