Why Use Perforated Metal Façades?

Posted: 17th September 2018

Why do we use perforated cladding?

A facade or rainscreen system is an exterior wall detail where the siding (wall cladding) stands off from the moisture-resistant surface of an air barrier applied to the sheathing (sheeting), creating a capillary break and to allow drainage and evaporation. Until recently this type of building support system has typically remained very basic and with little design-led purpose.

Metalline has led the evolution in perforated metal facades which can create a far greater aesthetic whilst still providing the benefits of traditional cladding systems. Traditionally, perforated metal facades are manufactured in a range of different materials and finishes. One of these finishes is perforated aluminium. Perforated patterns help create a striking building whilst maintaining a sound structure.

Perforated metal facades are an effective way to enliven the building design of what would otherwise be a simple cubic structure. With a range of designs available from uniform circular perforations to honeycomb-patterned latticework, perforated metal cladding has the ability to add depth, texture and further intrigue to a facade.

At Metalline, we are at the forefront of the rainscreen cladding industry, by producing aluminium perforated panels and high-grade sheet metal panels, fins and pressings. We can work to bespoke perforated facade specifications to suit you as the client and your architectural needs.

With our state-of-the-art machinery, we have the ability to assist clients in their bespoke specifications to provide stunning designs that are also practical.
