Perforated metal comes in a range of architectural patterns, which are used in a number of household applications. They can be used as radiator covers, infill panels, built in cabinets and privacy screens among other applications. While the standard material is unfinished mild steel, Ferrier Design has what it takes to convert it to a functional finished product through plating, greasing, powder coating and greasing.
Depending on the application you want to use them for, you can choose between a vast array of patterns. Some common patterns in our inventory for home applications include ventilators, Grecian, Windsor, Chain-link, Small Octagon Cane and Full Clover among others. While it may be simple to choose a pattern because you like it, it is critical to make a choice that can achieve optimal functionality in a given application.
One of the most outstanding properties of decorative perforated metal is its ability to sound proof a building to minimize echo and reduce external noise. It is an ideal material for use on ceilings, ventilation grilles and sun protection sluts. The acoustic performance of perforated metal helps people limit the health effects associated with noise.
Reduction of energy costs
One of the most outstanding effects of the rising cost of energy is that it increases the cost of operating conventional homes and residential buildings. This is a problem, because so many Activities around a home such as heating, ventilation and lighting are associated with energy. An ideal way to save energy costs is by having some areas of your home built in a design that helps minimize energy costs. Studies have revealed that homes using perforated metal sheets in front of their facades can bring up to 29 percent savings on energy, on HVAC & lighting consumption in a year.
If you have surfaces around the house that are made of glass, it is a great idea to use perforated metal as an extra reinforcement to the glass. The material can also be installed around glass covered furnaces and cement slurry screens to make them more secure.
