In order to produce galvanised steel hexagonal perforated metal mesh sheet, flat sheet metal is punched with a hexagonal hole. Perforated sheets are commonly often used in applications where the passing of air 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
What Is A Metal Mesh Grid Panel?
In this case we are referring to perforated sheet metal.
Perforated metal is a type of sheet metal that has a pattern of holes or perforations punched into it. These holes can be round, square, rectangular, or any other shape, and can be arranged in a variety of patterns, such as staggered, straight, or diagonal.#
What Is Galvanised Steel?
Made from mild steel that has been hot-dip galvanized for protection against the elements. Hot-dip galvanized mild steel for protection against the elements. Coated in zinc to make it more hardwearing, galvanised perforated sheet is perfect for use in outdoor conditions. This EN ISO 1461 protective coat ensures the mild steel is guarded against corrosion, which makes it an ideal component in gates, fences, outdoor furniture, balustrade inserts and shelving.
The perforated galvanised steel sheet has a pattern of round holes that can be varied based on metal thickness, hole size, and pitch (distance between holes).
Perforated steel sheet is commonly used by architects and designers as they are able to play with light, sound, and visual depth using the patterned sheet.
It is important to note that ‘Galvanised Steel’ and ‘Galvanized Steel’ refer to the same finish.
Can This Mesh Rust?
Galvanised steel has excellent corrosion resistance, but over time and with exposure to harsh environmental conditions, the zinc coating can wear away, exposing the underlying steel to the elements.
In this instance, the galvanized steel perforated metal can eventually rust. The speed at which rust forms will depend on the severity of the exposure to moisture, salt, and other corrosive substances. Regular maintenance, such as cleaning and recoating with a zinc-rich paint, can help to prolong the lifespan of galvanized steel perforated metal and prevent rusting.
How Do I Bend A Metal Mesh Grid Panel?
We use an in house press brake to bend metal panels to order. If you do not have an industrial facility available to you then bending perforated metal mesh can be a bit challenging, especially if you want to maintain the integrity of the pattern of perforations.
- Secure the perforated metal mesh in place using clamps or a vice. Be sure to protect the metal surface with soft jaws or padding to prevent damage. You can easily scratch this metal.
- Score the metal along the line where you want to make the bend. Use a metal scribe or a sharp knife to make a shallow cut along the line.
- Use a metal brake or a bending tool to make the bend. You can also use a piece of tubing or pipe to bend the metal by hand. Place the scored line over the edge of the bending tool, and slowly bend the metal to the desired angle. Be sure to apply even pressure along the entire length of the bend to avoid damaging the perforations.
- If you need to make multiple bends, repeat the scoring and bending process for each bend.
- After bending, inspect the perforated metal mesh carefully to ensure that the pattern of perforations is still intact and that the metal has not cracked or warped. It is easily to distort the perforations, so be careful.
