Ordering Punching Metal Mesh
The following options are important considerations to help you select the correct Ares Engineering punching metal mesh for your project or application. Please specify:
|Applications||Product applications/uses include displays, exhibits, fixtures, partitions, cabinet inserts, guards, furniture, building facades, infill panels, shielding, sign panels, filters, baskets, ventilation, security enclosures and more. We invite you to browse through our library of products and applications for perforated metal applications.|
|Hole Types||Choose from a variety of round, square, slotted, hexagonal or designer perforated hole types.|
|Primary Materials/Product Finishes||Select primary material types, including aluminum, carbon steel, galvanized steel, stainless steel or plastic, taking into account climatic or environmental realities. Stock is usually "finish" unless otherwise noted. The links provided in the Overview section of our Perforated Metal Resources landing page provide more information on the primary material types and product finishes.|
|Specifications/Thickness||Identify the material specification number or thickness in inches. The gauge, thickness and weight tables by major materials on the Perforated Metal Resources landing page contain additional information.|
|Hole Patterns||Identify hole size (diameter), hole type (shape), hole center (spacing), and hole arrangement (staggered center, straight center, reverse staggered center) or Ares Engineering series name and number.|
|Open Area Percentage||Select the desired percentage of open area in the perforated sheet metal or plate.|
|Margin/End Mode||Specify the solid margin preference on the width and/or length of the sheet if your application requires it. Most stock 11 Gauge and lighters have minimal solid edge margins on the sheet length and no end margins on the sheet width (holes at the end of the material that are cut through). Sheets larger than 11 Gauge typically have finished or unfinished patterns with corresponding end margins.|
|Product Size, Form and Quantity||Determine the product size, form (usually supplied in sheets), and quantity required, including pieces cut to size. items 3/16 inch or thicker are identified as trays.|
|Special Requirements||Specify any requirements for special cut sizes, edge or rim finishes, finishing, leveling, fabrication, non-standard tolerances, etc. If your project requires filler plates, the Filler Plate Worksheet Perforated Metal Resources landing page can be found in the Overview section.|
|Accessories||Determine if your application requires perforated metal accessories, such as angles, flats, or U-edge framing solutions.|
Production of perforated metal sheet
Perforated metal panels are produced by punching holes of different shapes and sizes into metal plate to create various patterns. A range of tools can be utilized alongside punching machines to create regular and irregular patterns.
All the details can be customized according to customers' requirements such as the material, thickness, hole size, panel size even the finish and color.
For decoration use, most customers choose aluminum alloy as their project material, because it is light weight, easy to install on frame.
Available in a large variety of finishes including powder coated and anodized, perforated metal provides designers and architects with the freedom to create a diverse range of patterns and designs.
