Uses for Decorative Metal in Your Home
What is perforated metal?
Perforated metal comes in a range of architectural patterns, which are used in a number of household applications. They can be used as radiator covers, infill panels, built in cabinets and privacy screens among other applications. While the standard material is unfinished mild steel, you may want to consider plating, greasing, powder coating and greasing the metal, as that will give it a truly well-finished look in your home.
Get a better sleep at night!
One of the most outstanding properties of perforated metal is its ability to sound proof a building to minimize echo and reduce external noise. It is an ideal material for use on ceilings, ventilation grilles and sun protection slots. The acoustic performance of perforated metal helps people limit negative health side-effects associated with noise.
Reduce Energy Costs
Money back in your pocket!
One of the most frustrating effects of the rising cost of energy is that it has increased operating costs on conventional homes and residential buildings. This is a problem, because so many activities around a home such as heating, ventilation and lighting are associated with energy. An ideal way to save energy costs is by giving your home built-in effective metal proofing designs that help minimize energy costs. Studies have revealed that homes using perforated metal sheets in front of their facades can bring up to 29 percent savings on energy, on HVAC & lighting consumption in a year.
Reinforcing Stained Glass
Unique geometric glass
If you have surfaces around the house that are made of glass, it is a great idea to use beautifully designed, decorative perforated metal as an extra reinforcement to the glass. The material can also be installed around glass covered furnaces and cement slurry screens to make them more secure.
