Being both lightweight and ductile, aluminium readily lends itself to fabrication.

However the un-initiated should tread carefully as there is no substitute for experience in specifying fabricated aluminium. It might, therefore, prove helpful if I share some key pointers with you, and these are;

ProductionTolerances: How long is a piece of string? There is no such thing in aluminium fabrication as an exact dimension. Every measurement is subject to a production tolerance. If sizing is critical, make sure you agree specifics with us before fabrication commences. If requested and to ensure a satisfactory ‘fit’, we can normally provide measurements that are ‘no greater than’ or ‘no less than’.

Aesthetics: To quote from Shakespeare ‘Beauty is bought by judgement of the eye’. Workshop processes will literally leave their mark on all metal surfaces. If aesthetics are important, and they often are, consider the intended location of the fabricated items. Lighting conditions, viewing distance and angle, etc., are among the elements that need to be taken into account.

Working from the premise that ‘prevention is better than cure’, sheet materials can be covered with a peelable protective film prior to production. This best practice precaution certainly assists in reducing, but not necessarily completely eliminating, surface marking.  Sheets are normally supplied with one good side (unless otherwise specified). It is also sometimes possible to ‘hide’ surfaces liable to workshop abrasions, as long as the visible faces are identified to us prior to fabrication.

Gooding Aluminium offer a fantastic stock collection of perforated aluminium hole patterns, shapes and sizes!

There are many benefits of using our perforated sheets including;

  • Cleanliness – We only use naturally evaporating lubricants to assist with the perforating process.
  • Edge Detail – Our standard stock size panels are always supplied with an unpunched ‘safe edge’ border.
  • Flatness – Our technologically advanced production methods minimise surface curl in perforated sheets which helps to produce commercially and visually acceptable degrees of flatness.
  • Missing/Imperfect Hole Shapes – We only supply perforated aluminium sheets with 100% hole pattern conformity.
  • Surface Protection – We apply protective polythene film on the top face side to help protect from the rigours of the perforating process.

There are 7 hole shapes for you to chose from:

  1. Round Holes
  2. Square Holes
  3. Single Slots
  4. 5 Slots
  5. Elliptic Holes, Staggered
  6. Hexagonal Holes, Staggered
  7. Special Patterns
