Aluminium is a unique metal with a clean and sleek appearance that naturally appeals to the professional specifier and installer. Our products and services are continually recommended by leading Architects, Interior Designers and Contractors having successfully been incorporated in many outstanding projects and applications.
We have supplied bespoke fabricated components, aluminium sheets and extrusions for refurbishment of some of the funkiest clubs and bars in the country and we are ideally placed to supply products on time and within budget.
Due to its versatility and when combined with its alloys, aluminium can be folded, formed, machined or worked using a wide range of processes. Thanks to these excellent properties, aluminium has become widely used within an extensive variety of architectural applications.
Perforated sheets are available punched in many configurations, including round, square, or hexagonal holes, slots, or special ornamental shapes. To increase design possibilities many of these patterns are available with different percentage open areas ranging from 6 to 55%.
We stock a large supply of perforated sheet with various patterns. Clicking on the images below will take you through to the relevant product:
Gooding Aluminium is a national and international supplier of a wide range of high quality aluminium products. Our bespoke fabrication service produces specially sized perforated panels with un-punched areas and plain margins. Panels can also be rolled to form single or double curves.
Perforated aluminium sheets can be surface finished to meet your design requirements. Available finishes include anodising, powder coating and satin brushing. Alternatively, the aluminium material can be supplied in its natural (untreated) mill condition.
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.
Aluminium 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.
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.
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.
For your preferred pattern choose from our diverse range of perforated sheets in mill, satin brush or powder coated finishes.
Specially perforated aluminium panels were used at a Cafe in University of Northumbria, Newcastle:
You might like to know that we are able to produce specially sized and shaped perforated panels with plain borders. These items can also be processed to anodised, powder coated and satin brushed finishes. Please contact us with your requirements.
