A perforated metal sheet is sheet metal with a series of holes or patterns punched into it by a machine. Commonly made from steel and aluminium, perforated sheet metal has a wide range of uses and applications.
Here at Acorn Metal our focus is on creating high-quality designs for our customers, which we do by offering a huge variety of perforated patterns to choose from. Our precise machinery can punch up to 3mm thick, meaning we can create perforated metal sheets for any requirement. From practical functions to decorative displays, there are unlimited ways in which perforated metal can be put to use:
Perforated metal can be a visually pleasing answer to those acoustic problems. Adding a layer of punched sheet metal to a room can help to scatter, absorb, or reflect sound and cut out certain frequencies, depending on the requirement. It’s commonly used for effective noise control in offices, leisure centres, as well as stadiums and loud industrial environments.
Perforated metal filtration is a strong and effective way to keep your systems clean, with high quality products built to withstand the pressure. Utilise filtering screens, tubes, and strainers to create cleaner air with exhaust systems, strain certain fluids and gases with dewatering filters, and keep debris out of unwanted places in machinery. All industries, automotive to mining, have a need for perforated metal filtration products.
The perfect way to reduce the glare from a light source is to install a stylish perforated metal light cover or diffuser. They control the direction and quantity of light emitted while still allowing ventilation in an aesthetically pleasing way. With a massive selection of patterns to choose from, creating your unique lighting fixture is easy with Acorn Metal.
Decorative use in homes
Thanks to its lightweight yet durable qualities, perforated sheet metal designs are a perfect addition to your home. As sheet metal can take on any shape it has unlimited uses on walls, ceilings and floors. Choose a custom privacy screen, light fixture, stairwell, or seat with a unique sheet metal design pattern that will provide ventilation, as well as sound absorption.
By using quality materials like stainless steel to create perforated sheet metal designs, Acorn Metal can guarantee the durability and longevity of its security focused products for doors, walls and ceilings. Metal screens and guards become aesthetically pleasing with a unique perforated design, and can divide up space while still allowing air, light, and sound to carry through.
The healthcare and scientific industries have high standards, and require precise designs made from quality materials; from storage of products small and large, to container trays and pans, as well as room organisation with racks and cabinets. The options are endless.
