Mild Steel Perforated Mesh Sheet
1.5mm mild steel perforated metal is produced by punching flat sheet metal with a specific pattern. This is driven by the customer’s requirement for the metal for cosmetic or application purposes.
This perforated mild steel sheet is a straightforward yet highly functional product. Designed with round holes in a staggered pitch pattern, it offers both utility and aesthetics. The sheet is crafted from mild steel, ensuring durability and versatility in various applications.
The mesh is characterised by its R1.5 T3 perforation, signifying a 1.5mm round hole size. With a pitch of 3mm, which is the distance from the start of one hole to the next, it provides consistent spacing and an organized appearance. This pitch takes into account both the hole size and the gap between them. The thickness of this flat sheet is 1mm, which strikes a balance between strength and flexibility.
One of the benefits of this product is its adaptability. It can be used in architectural designs, machine guards, or any application where there’s a need for a balance between cover and airflow. Its perforation allows for ventilation while offering a degree of protection. The mild steel composition ensures it can withstand everyday wear and tear while being easy to work with. You can cut, bend, and shape it according to your specific requirements.

We also offer a massive range of stainless steel perforated metal sheet options from immediate stock. In order to produce stainless steel perforated metal sheet, flat sheet metal is punched with round or square holes. 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
Can The Sheet Act As A Protective Barrier?
Yes, the perforated mild steel sheet can act as a protective barrier. Its staggered round holes provide visibility and protection at the same time. Because of the solid regions between the holes, the sheet also provides a level of physical barrier while allowing ventilation and light passage. As a result, it is suitable for applications requiring airflow, light penetration, and protective shielding. As a result of its 1mm thickness and mild steel’s durability, it is a preferred choice for a variety of industrial and architectural applications.
How Does The Sheet React To Temperature Fluctuations?
The perforated mild steel sheet, like other mild steel products, can expand or contract with significant temperature fluctuations. Due to its thermal expansion coefficient, mild steel expands when heated and contracts when cooled. As a result of the holes in the perforated sheet, it may expand or contract at a slightly different rate than a solid sheet would. Applications that are exposed to extreme temperature variations need to consider the potential for thermal expansion or contraction. These changes can be accommodated by proper installation methods. In most applications, mild steel’s reaction to temperature fluctuations can be managed effectively.
Can I Use This Sheet In Automotive Applications?
It is possible to use the perforated mild steel sheet in a variety of automotive applications. With its versatility, it can be used in a wide range of applications, including protective grilles, ventilation components, custom car modifications, speaker covers, and more. Since mild steel rusts when exposed to moisture, it’s important to ensure that the sheet is adequately treated or coated, especially if exposed to outdoor conditions or areas where moisture is prevalent. In automotive projects, the sheet’s specific design with staggered round holes can provide a unique aesthetic appeal or serve specific functions.
