Understanding Perforated Aluminium

We have put togethr the following information to provide you with more information about Perforated Aluminium. If you are interested in using Perforated Aluminium in your next project, you can click on the images to take you to our product pages where you can make a purchase or order free samples.

Blank areas/margins can be incorporated into specially perforated panels. Always check with our technical personnel to ensure the suitability of your perforated / plain layout before committing to specification.

Broken edges (absence of border margins) are not supplied by GA on standard stock size or specially perforated panels. Shearing to size from stock panels may result in broken edges.

Cleanliness on mill finish materials may vary from a relatively dry finish to a light residue of water soluble lubricant (necessary for the perforating process). It is advisable to arrange for mill finish materials to be wiped over on site, after installation.

End margins with staggered hole arrangements can result in either a finished or unfinished pattern at each end of the work piece.

Flatness in perforated sheets is never absolute. Various factors including overall panel size, the ratio of perforated to plain areas, the % open area, material thickness, all effect the degree of distortion. Our technologically advanced production methods minimise these difficulties and help to produce commercially and visually acceptable degrees of flatness.

Aluminium awareness information

Key Facts:
• Aluminium is great for incorporating into environmentally sensitive applications, such as this one.
• Environmentally friendly aluminium is the only recyclable material that more than pays for it’s own re-cycling costs!
• Re-cycling aluminium into new forms only requires 5% of the energy that originally produced it.
• All manufactured aluminium is effectively a stored energy bank for future generations.
• Aluminium is only 1/3rd the weight of steel.
• Aluminium’s surface has a self generating and repairing oxide coating which makes it corrosion resistant and therefore less expensive to maintain than steel and other corrodible metals.
