Stainless Steel Metal Perforated Panel
SS304 perforated panel is produced by punching flat sheet metal with a specific round pattern. This is driven by the customer’s requirement for the metal for cosmetic or application purposes.
The perforated panel we offer is crafted from high-quality stainless steel of 304 grade. Known for its durability and resilience against environmental factors, this panel is designed with round holes in a staggered pitch pattern. The holes, each measuring 5mm in diameter, are carefully spaced 8mm apart from center to center, ensuring a consistent and uniform design. With a thickness of 1.5mm, this flat sheet strikes a balance between strength and flexibility.
One of the inherent benefits of using a perforated panel is its combination of transparency and protection. The staggered hole design allows for adequate ventilation, making it suitable for applications where air flow is essential. Meanwhile, its robust construction means it can serve as an effective barrier in various scenarios.
Applications of the perforated panel are diverse. From architectural facades to protective screens in machinery, and from decorative elements in interior design to functional components in manufacturing processes, this panel is versatile. The stainless steel composition ensures longevity, resisting corrosion and wear over time. Plus, its polished finish offers an aesthetically pleasing appearance, making it a favored choice for designers and engineers alike.

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
Is The Perforated Panel Resistant To Chemicals And Acids?
Yes, the perforated panel made from 304-grade stainless steel offers resistance to many chemicals and acids. As a result of its inherent properties, stainless steel provides a degree of protection against corrosive elements. Its resistance can, however, vary depending on the specific chemicals or acids involved, their concentration, and the duration of exposure. Preventing corrosive damage requires regular cleaning and maintenance. To ensure stainless steel’s suitability for the intended application, consult experts or refer to stainless steel’s resistance charts if the panel is likely to come into frequent contact with specific chemicals or acids.
How Does The Panel’s Open Area Percentage Affect Ventilation?
The open area percentage of the perforated panel directly influences its ventilation capacity. More open spaces mean more air can pass through a panel with a higher open area percentage. With this perforated panel with staggered round holes, the open area is determined by the size and distribution of the 5mm holes set at an 8mm pitch. This panel facilitates airflow while providing a barrier when used for ventilation, such as in HVAC systems, architectural designs, or machinery covers. Therefore, the higher the open area percentage, the better the panel is for ventilation. Selecting the right perforated panel for a specific application requires balancing ventilation needs with other factors, such as protection or aesthetics.
Can The Perforated Panel Be Powder Coated?
Yes, the perforated panel made from stainless steel 304 grade can be powder coated. In powder coating, a dry, powdered paint is applied to a surface, and then cured under heat to form a protective and decorative layer. Due to its corrosion-resistant nature, stainless steel 304 grade makes an excellent powder coating substrate. Aside from enhancing the appearance of the panel, the process also provides an additional layer of protection against environmental factors. To achieve the best adhesion and smooth finish, the panel must be free of oils, residues, and contaminants before powder coating.
How Thick Is Each Perforated Panel Sheet?
The sheet is 1.5mm in thickness.
