Perforated construction materials
The use of perforated materials in the construction sector is always increasing. We work closely with our clients to develop new ideas and technologies. This partnership has helped us to introduce several new materials into the industrial, commercial and residential building marketplace.
Typical applications include: balustrading; radiator covers; street furniture; acoustic panelling; air conditioning systems, perforated sheet metal and decorative panelling & panels.
Perforated walls, panels and screens have been used for centuries as a way to control the level of light entering a building or to offer privacy to the occupants. The functions of perforations have remained largely the same, but the materials and methods of manufacture have altered considerably.
Perforated screens and shutters can help to add a distinctive personality to a building’s exterior, as well as performing an important function. Perforated façades enable interior spaces to benefit from natural light, filtered in such a way that it reduces the glare of direct sunlight and resulting in an environment that is conducive to relaxation and working.
Whether used internally or externally, perforations create a dialogue between spaces; obscuring or inviting views as required and keeping temperature and brightness at a pleasant and practical level. With new technologies come new options for architects and designers interested in exploring the potential for perforations to tell stories and create statements. It is now possible to produce detailed patterned surfaces quickly and easily and on a scale large enough to wrap entire buildings. Shade and privacy will continue to be the key practical purposes of perforations, but the potential applications are greater than ever. Find out now how Bion can support your design process.
