Perforated metal facade cladding is widely used in architects. It combines privacy protection and multiple functions like lighting, ventilation, isolation, sunscreen. Most importantly, it protect the buildings against the change of weather.
Perforated metal has stable material properties and high strength to weight ratio, which makes it easy to construct new buildings and renovate old buildings.
After surface treatment, the modern style appearance will make the building more unique and iconic.
Material is the most important factor.
Perforated metal cladding has to be exposed to the outdoors and needs large area, so material strength and corrosion resistance are important. As well as the strength-to-weight ratio considering the difficulties in construction and the stability of the frame structure.
Aluminum is the most widely used material. Advantages:
Weathering steel is also widely used in bad weather areas, because it has the best anti-weathering effect.
The cladding hole types represent the decorative value of the buildings.
For concise style, regularly arranged hole patterns, like round and hexagonal are popular.
For strong visual impact, customized hole shape and size are available.
Proper open areas provide good air ventilation. Most designers choose 35% open area to balance above factors, like lighting, ventilation, isolation, sunscreen and privacy protection.
