Why Choose Stainless Steel Perforated Sheets?
There are many uses for metal products in architectural work such as railings, building cladding, and decorative panels. Metal is one of the strongest building materials and some metal products, like stainless steel, is highly resistant to corrosion. In addition, when metals are perforated, many important benefits can be achieved. Here are some important reasons to choose stainless steel perforated sheet products from Astro Metal Craft and Manufacturing.
What Does Perforation Mean?
Perforation is cutting or punching patterned holes into a material. Thus, perforation is a common process for paper products and is becoming more and more popular for sheet metal. Today’s perforated products can do many things, such as:
- Create specific designs or decorations
- Sound control
- Light control
Benefits of Perforated Stainless Steel
Perforating metal sheets lowers the weight considerably while producing a strong and durable product. By reducing weight, large metal panels are easier to install. Weight is a major consideration with some structures. Perforated panels help to keep structural weight down.
Suppose you need tall exterior fencing. Stainless steel perforated sheet, or anodized aluminum perforated sheet, makes strong fencing which is highly resistant to corrosion. Also, the tiny holes allow air flow, reduce wind resistance and make it less susceptible to blow overs in strong winds.
Not only is stainless steel a very durable material, it can be very attractive as well. It’s no wonder that stainless steel appliances have become so popular recently. Stainless steel perforated sheets can add a modern and even futuristic look to a lobby, corridor, or outdoor structure. The perforation can be made in a wide variety of shapes and patterns to match existing décor or draw attention as a centerpiece. Given the corrosive resistance of stainless, it can keep its good looks for much longer than other materials.
TruPunch 3000 & 5000
Astro Metal Craft uses the TruPunch 3000 and 5000. In addition, other equipment is used to create high-quality perforated products. The punches are highly efficient, precise, and does not scratch or mar the metal surface. The nearly limitless range of options for hole shape, size, and pattern yields highly customized solutions. Additionally, images can be programmed into the punch pattern and is then shows up in the perforated panel by the variety of strategically placed punch sizes and shapes. Thanks to this machine and our other fabrication capabilities, we produce fully fabricated perforated metal products in a shorter time, lowering labor time and passing on savings to you.
