Architectural Perforated Metal Panels Gaining Popularity!
Architects and designers are incorporating architectural perforated metal panels in parking ramps, balconies, decks, fences, and on buildings, more than ever before. Perforated metals and screens are decorative, functional, and diverse. Astro Metal Craft completely fabricates decorative perforated panels to offer a combination of sizes and patterns. Please note, we pride ourselves in the varying applications of perforated metals and screens we offer.
Architectural Perforated Metal Ordinance
Perforated metal panels and screens are now common in parking ramps, especially in bigger cities. According to this city ordinance, Minneapolis requires screening in regard for the public and nearby properties. The screening protects from vehicle and internal garage lighting in public ramps. Importantly, perforated metal panels help with airflow. Therefore, architects and designers use artistic panels to comply with the decree. Around the world, perforated metal panels are gaining popularity. They are on decks, privacy boarders, balcony railings, signage, equipment screening, shielding, vine trellises, acoustical applications, and enclosures of many kinds.
Perforated Metal Panels are Functional
Perforated panels disperse sound, air and light. For instance, acoustical solutions provide sound dampening and ventilation to control airflow. To generate visual appeal and amazement, back-lighting illuminates the design. As a result, LED or fluorescent panels deliver an ornamental contrast from the numerous different dimensions and placement combinations.
Astro’s Perforated Metal Panels
Decorative perforated metals are available in a wide selection of gauges, materials, profiles, and colors. Our CNC punches perforates the panels; however, different designs can be achieved through laser cutting. The most common materials we use at Astro are aluminum, weathering steel, and stainless steel. The panels can be color-matched on each side for applications where both sides are visible. Hence, there is a variety of finishes to choose from, with the addition of a warranty.
Astro’s drafting, design and all our metal fabrication, including certified welding, is performed at our location in Hanover, MN. We offer custom options for mounting systems and fabrication detail for cost effectiveness. Thus, today’s architects and designers incorporate perforated metals for aesthetics, airflow, sound, and light. In conclusion, perforated metals are very functional and gaining popularity.
