Perforated Mesh Panel Galvanised Steel
Perforated mesh panel galvanised steel is produced by punching flat galvanised plate with a specific round pattern. The customer’s requirement for metal for cosmetic or application purposes drives this decision.
The mesh panel galvanised is a straightforward yet durable solution for those seeking a perforated metal mesh. Crafted from galvanised steel, this mesh promises resilience against the usual wear and tear, and its galvanised finish ensures resistance to rust and corrosion, extending its longevity.
One of its standout features is the 10mm round hole size, or aperture, evenly spaced across the panel. The holes are set in a triangular pattern, which not only provides a unique aesthetic but also maximises structural integrity and allows for efficient material distribution. The pitch, or spacing between these holes, is set at 15mm. This means, whether you measure from the start of one hole to the beginning of the next or combine the hole size with the gap, the distance remains consistent at 15mm.
Another notable characteristic of this product is its thickness. At 1.5mm, the flat sheet strikes the right balance between sturdiness and flexibility, ensuring it can stand up to the demands of various applications while still being easy to manipulate.
Specification Of This Mesh:
- Hole Size (Aperture) – 10mm round hole
- Pitch – 15mm. You can measure the pitch from the start of one hole to the next or the hole size plus the gap between the hole
- Thickness – 1.5mm thick flat sheet
- Pattern – Triangular
Sheets with perforations are commonly used to allow air to pass through. Ventilation and filtration are the main uses for this mesh type. Rodent proofing is another use for perforated sheeting.

We also offer a massive range of hexagonal hole galvanised metal sheet options from immediate stock.
In order to produce galvanised steel hexagonal perforated metal mesh sheet, flat sheet metal is punched with a hexagonal hole. Perforated sheetin application is required. Because the holes are punched, it is possible to have a far stronger finished metal product than it would be for the equivalent thickness in woven or welded mesh.
FAQs For This Product
How Do I Attach The Perforated Mesh Panel Galvanised Steel To Frames Or Structures?
Attaching the perforated mesh panel made of galvanised steel to frames or structures requires careful consideration of the intended use and environment. Here’s a guideline on how to go about it:
- Surface Preparation: Before attaching, ensure that both the mesh panel and the frame or structure are clean, free of dirt, and rust-free. This promotes better adhesion and reduces potential weak points.
- Screws and Bolts: Use galvanised or stainless steel screws or bolts to prevent corrosion. Pre-drill holes if necessary and ensure that they align correctly with the mesh’s holes or desired points of attachment.
- Rivets: For a cleaner finish, especially on visible surfaces, rivets can be used to attach the mesh to frames. They provide a secure connection and are less likely to loosen over time.
- Welding: For more permanent and robust attachment, especially in industrial applications, the mesh panel can be welded to a steel frame. Ensure that the welding points don’t compromise the mesh’s structural integrity or its galvanised coating.
- Clamps and Brackets: Use clamps or brackets for temporary installations or if you need the flexibility to move the panel later. They can grip the mesh without the need for drilling or altering the mesh itself.
- Adhesives: In situations where mechanical fasteners aren’t ideal, heavy-duty construction adhesives can be used. However, ensure the adhesive is suitable for metal-to-metal bonding and is resistant to environmental factors of the intended setting.
- U-Channel or Edge Framing: For added stability and a finished look, the mesh panel’s edges can be secured within U-channels or edge frames. This not only provides support but also protects against sharp edges.
- Support: For larger panels, consider adding cross supports or braces to prevent sagging or deformation under load or pressure.
- Sealing: If the installation is outdoors or in moisture-prone areas, consider sealing the attachment points with a suitable sealant to prevent water ingress and potential rusting.
Are There Different Patterns Available Other Than Triangular?
Perforated metal sheets, like the mesh panel galvanised, come in a variety of patterns to meet different aesthetic and functional needs. The triangular pattern is just one of many. Here are some other popular perforated patterns:
- Round: This is perhaps the most common perforation pattern, characterised by evenly spaced round holes. The configuration can be staggered or straight, depending on the desired effect and purpose.
- Square: Square perforations provide a modern look and can offer a higher open area compared to round perforations of the same size.
- Slotted: These are elongated holes that can be aligned either horizontally or vertically. They are often used for decorative effects or in applications where elongation is necessary for functionality, such as speaker grilles.
- Hexagonal: Hexagonal perforations offer a unique geometric design, often used for aesthetic purposes and can also offer good open area percentages.
- Decorative: Beyond standard shapes, there are custom patterns, including ornamental or decorative designs. These might include floral patterns, company logos, or other intricate designs.
- Louvered: This pattern has slanted, louver-style slots and is primarily used for its ability to allow passage of air while also blocking direct light or line of sight.
- Bridge: Here, part of the metal is left unperforated at the hole’s edge, creating a bridge-like effect. It provides added strength to the sheet.
What Applications Are Ideal For The Mesh Panel Galvanised?
As a result of its strength, durability, and design, mesh panels galvanised are ideal for a wide range of applications. This material is most commonly used in fencing and barriers for residential and commercial properties, offering both protection and aesthetic appeal. As a result of the material’s perforated nature, it is well suited for ventilation systems in buildings, which ensure efficient airflow while blocking unwanted elements.
It’s commonly used as a machine guard in industrial settings, shielding workers from moving parts while allowing visibility and heat dissipation. This mesh is often incorporated into facades or decorative panels, utilizing its geometric patterns to create visual interest.
In addition, its resistance to environmental elements makes it an ideal material for outdoor furniture, sunscreens, and landscape design elements. Mesh is useful for animal enclosures in agriculture, as it provides both protection and ventilation. Despite moisture-prone environments, its galvanised finish ensures extended longevity.
