The Significance of Perforated Metal in Modern Architectural Design

If you own a commercial building, you know the importance of it representing your brand, creating street appeal and conveying a story. Our perforated metal panels are lightweight, easy to install and perfectly compliment traditional building materials like brick and timber.

Perforated metal sheets are used for many applications, ranging from sun-shading to ventilation. They can be made from any number of materials including aluminium, mild, galvanised and stainless steel.

It is one of the most versatile building solutions available today, offering vast possibilities for interior and exterior designs at a similarly low cost – from architectural features like glazing shades and security screens to full-scale cladding panels, perforated metal is an inexpensive method for adding visual interest to your project with budget, value and performance in mind.

We enjoy a strong relationship with architecturally designed commercial buildings

  1. Aesthetic designs that work with modern trends.

    The unique shape and textural quality of the open area in most perforated metal sheets actually provide an attractive contrasting design feature against the surface of their surroundings. The holes create dappled light and dynamic shadows that change with the source of light. Aside from that, perforated metal sheets have an elegant, clean design that helps create a modern or minimalist style.

    In fact, one of the most beautiful uses of perforated metals sheets are as sun-shades. They can be installed during construction or retrofitted to provide additional indirect light inside office, residential or retail buildings. These screens allow for natural light and ventilation without sacrificing privacy. It becomes a stunning backdrop for backlit lighting at night, adding another layer of sophistication to the interior environment.
  1. Environmentally-friendly materials for sustainability.

    Architects are continually being challenged to create sustainable buildings; however, these projects require unique architectural solutions that help reduce carbon emissions, conserve resources, promote occupant health, and meet current environmental regulations.

    Compared to other common building materials such as brick and timber, perforated aluminium uses less raw materials, generates less waste (which is almost entirely recyclable), and has lower requirement for replacement due to natural resistance to corrosion and high durability. It’s therefore a viable choice for green star building.
  1. Provides great acoustics.

    Perforated metal has a unique characteristic in its ability for resonant sound absorption. The panels create an absorption for sound waves that only occur in a narrow frequency band. Metrix Group have the ability to design perforated panels coupled with our range of insulation panels in a way that the open area is specifically sized to absorb unwanted sound.

Our solutions are designed to be functional and solutions focused. We’re proud of our reputation for creating quality products, and we continue to innovate to provide greater value for our customer base.

Let us assist in making your dream designs into reality. We promote early contractor involvement and believe in developing our projects from the concept and production, right through logistics and installation.
