Mill Aluminium for Urban Chic!

One of the first materials that come to mind when thinking of industrial style design is sheet metal.

When visualising cool, funky and edgy interior spaces, untreated aluminium sheet seamlessly integrates with exposed structural elements, brick walls and raw cement surfaces.

Perforated SheetAluminium in the mill (natural) finish compliments many facets of urban and industrial style interiors. Balustrade panels, column enclosures, cladding of vertical bar/counter surfaces are all good application examples for this hygienic and low maintenance metal.

With a variety of aluminium sheet patterns and textures available from our online stock range you can select a particular look that will satisfy specific style needs.

Textured Aluminium

Perforated sheet, with its minimalist credentials, also fits in perfectly with modernist design schemes. Perforated sheets are easy to manipulate and are often used as architectural accents, screening panels and also widely as diffusers to create softened lighting effects.

One of its principal advantages over ferrous metals is that, without the risk of surface corrosion, aluminium’s raw silvery finish will, through wear and tear, develop its own appealing patina.

You can be assured that  among the aluminium sheets on our website you are likely to find some pattern or texture that will help to enhance the look of your next industrial style project.

Perforated Aluminium Sheet: Useful Things to Know

It was none other than Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the creator of the Barcelona Pavillion, (which is often described as one of the most beautiful 20th century buildings), who coined the phrase ‘less is more’. Van der Rohe could have been talking about perforated aluminium sheet!

What other material simultaneously provides so many design opportunities to combine its inherent strength to weight ratio and corrosion resistant qualities with a widely appreciated aesthetic appeal? By virtue of these outstanding attributes, perforated aluminium sheet is often incorporated into many architectural components as the primary element. These products would include balustrade panels, bar/counter fascias, ceiling panels, column casings, radiator/vent covers, wall cladding and so on.

It is often desirable to custom make perforated aluminium panels rather than fabricate from stock size sheets. This way the specifier retains much greater design flexibility by being able to incorporate plain borders and other unpunched areas, as well as, cut outs for lighting, vent ducts, etc. With the majority of round hole patterns being arranged on a 60 degree triangular pitch the plain borders are normally lost once pre-punched sheets are cut to size. Unless covered with a safety edge or hidden by some other component the resulting raw edge is a health and safety no no.

Anodised Aluminium Products

We have recently expanded our already comprehensive high quality stock range of aluminium profiles with a natural anodised surface finish.

Even more aluminium angles, aluminium channels and various architectural profiles, shapes and mouldings have been added to the ‘off the shelf’ surface finish options at Gooding Aluminium.One of the advantages of architectural anodising is that it adds both protective and aesthetic features to aluminium. The electrolytic process thickens, seals and hardens the protective film that is already present on the aluminium surface.

Anodic films are not simply coatings but are integrated with the metal’s surface structure and are therefore less likely to crack and peel.

It is also good to know that one of the wonders of anodising is that it produces superb metallic translucent effects. This is something that cannot be achieved with other surface treatments.

With an ever increasing emphasis being placed on service longevity and ease of maintenance etc., anodised aluminium is coming up trumps being durable, easy to clean, environmentally safe and economically viable to recycle, while looking great into the bargain!
