Aluminium Perforated Metal Sheet
10mm round aluminium perforated metal sheet is produced by punching flat aluminium plate with a specific pattern. The customer’s requirement for metal for cosmetic or application purposes drives this decision.
The perforated metal sheet is a versatile material made from aluminium. Designed with 10mm round holes, which is one of the most sought-after sizes, this sheet is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Its triangular pattern arrangement adds a unique visual element, allowing it to blend seamlessly into modern designs or stand out as a feature in more traditional settings.
A key aspect of this product is its pitch, set at 15mm. This dimension represents the distance from the beginning of one hole to the start of the next, combining both the hole’s size and the gap that follows. This specific configuration ensures that the sheet offers optimal ventilation and light passage while maintaining an even distribution of weight and stress across its surface. The result is a balance between openness and strength.
With a thickness of 3mm, the perforated metal sheet is robust and durable. Being made of aluminium, it combines the advantages of being lightweight yet strong. This makes it ideal for a multitude of applications ranging from architectural facades, decorative screens, to machinery guards and more.

FAQs For This Product
What Applications Are Best Suited For The Round Hole Design?
With its round holes, the perforated metal sheet offers both aesthetic and functional advantages, making it suitable for a wide range of applications. Traditionally, this design is used in facades, partitions, and decorative screens, as its uniformity provides a visually appealing pattern that enhances building exteriors and interiors alike. It is ideal for ventilating systems, grilles, and protective covers for machinery because the round holes facilitate effective airflow and filtration. Its evenly spaced holes allow for optimal light diffusion, making it a popular choice for lampshades and light fixtures. The round hole design is also often used in acoustic panels due to its ability to effectively diffuse sound. Perforated metal sheets with round holes are a preferred choice for designers and engineers alike, whether they are used for aesthetic embellishment or practical functionality.
Is The Aluminium Used In The Perforated Metal Sheet Corrosion-Resistant?
Corrosion resistance is an inherent property of aluminium. When exposed to oxygen, aluminium forms a thin yet strong layer of aluminium oxide on its surface. This layer serves as a protective barrier, preventing further oxidation and extending the life of the metal. Due to this natural protective mechanism, aluminium used in perforated metal sheets is particularly suitable for outdoor applications and environments with moisture. Corrosion resistance also ensures durability and aesthetic appeal over time, as well as reduced maintenance.
Can The Perforated Metal Sheet Be Painted Or Finished?
A perforated metal sheet can be painted or finished to meet various aesthetic or functional requirements. For good paint adhesion, the sheet must be clean, grease-free, and properly primed before painting. It is crucial to use a primer that is suitable for aluminium. For a uniform appearance, the sheet can be painted with standard paints, including spray paints. It is also possible to apply finishes such as powder coating, which offers a durable and resistant surface. Using the right preparation and materials, you can paint or finish perforated metal sheets to achieve a specific colour, enhance corrosion resistance, or match an existing design theme.
