Mild Steel Perforated Steel Sheet
10mm 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.
The perforated steel sheet is crafted from mild steel and showcases a distinct square perforation pattern. With a hole size or aperture of 10mm, each square hole is consistently spaced at a pitch of 14mm, ensuring uniformity across the sheet. This pitch, essentially the distance from the beginning of one hole to the next, incorporates both the hole size and the gap that separates them. The sheet itself boasts a thickness of 1.5mm, striking a balance between durability and flexibility.
Being made of mild steel, this sheet offers a combination of strength and malleability, making it suitable for a range of applications. From architectural features like facades and partitions to functional uses such as ventilation grills and protective barriers, its versatility is evident. Moreover, the perforations not only add to the aesthetics but also serve practical functions like allowing airflow or filtering light.

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
Is This Perforated Steel Sheet Flexible Or Rigid?
Due to its construction from mild steel and its thickness of 1.5mm, the perforated steel sheet is inherently rigid. Despite mild steel’s malleability, this sheet is designed to maintain its shape and provide structural strength. The uniform perforations, with a 10mm square hole pattern, contribute to its rigidity by ensuring consistent material distribution across the sheet. In most applications, the sheet will not bend or warp, and will hold its shape well.
Whether used for architectural purposes, protective barriers, or other applications, perforated steel sheets provide sturdy and durable performance.
Can I Paint Or Finish The Sheet To Match My Décor?
Yes, you certainly can paint or finish the perforated steel sheet to match your décor. The surface must be properly prepared before painting. To begin, clean the sheet to remove any oils, dirt, or residue. Using a primer specifically designed for metal surfaces will ensure better paint adhesion. After the primer has dried, you can apply your choice of paint. To achieve a long-lasting finish, use metal-specific paints.
Also, powder coating and anodising can be explored depending on the desired look and the environment where the sheet will be used. Perforated steel sheets can seamlessly blend with various décor styles and themes when properly finished.
How Is Mild Steel’s Durability Compared To Other Materials?
The mild steel perforated sheet boasts a remarkable durability, especially when compared to other common sheet materials. Due to its strength, mild steel resists impact and wear over time. Its thickness of 1.5mm further amplifies this resilience. Aluminum might be lightweight, or plastics might provide specific resistance, but mild steel’s combination of strength and malleability is unmatched. When exposed to elements, some materials can corrode or degrade faster than others, but mild steel, especially when treated or finished, can withstand many environmental stresses.
When comparing durability, it’s important to keep the environment and application in mind. Stainless steel or galvanised steel might perform better in highly corrosive environments. There is no doubt that perforated steel sheet offers excellent strength and durability, but the best material often depends on project requirements and conditions.
