Perforated metal is a popular product choice among various industries because perforated metal is durable, versatile, and has a high strength-to-weight ratio. Perforated metal is easy to manufacture, economical, and suitable for a variety of metals and thicknesses.

Fabricators and designers have a multitude of options when choosing a perforated metal product for their projects. The perforated sheet metal can range from light to heavy gauge thickness, have either small or large openings, and can be fabricated from steel, aluminum, stainless steel, and other metals and plastics.

Perforated metal can be used to diffuse air, liquid, gas, sound, heat, and debris - making it an ideal product for industrial and commercial projects [1].  The chemical and manufacturing industries use perforated metal for ventilation, purifiers, dividers, screens, filters, strainers, piping inserts, cylinders, and cone strainers.
