Perforated sheet is created by punching regular flat sheet with a determined pattern for cosmetic or usability reasons.

Perforated metal sheets are often used in high-end and industrial applications where the passing of water or air is crucial, like ventilation, filtering and other structures. Due to the punched pattern, perforated metal is usually very light and thin, but offers a high strength-to-weight ratio.
The perforations come in many different shapes and sizes such as round, square, slotted, decorative, architectural, hexagonal and many more.
Common applications include partitions, enclosures, guards, sign panels, and screens.
Perforated sheet is available in the following metal types:
Stainless steel perforated sheet is a product that’s been punched with an array of hole sizes and patterns, typically for aesthetic purposes. This material is sought after for its savings in weight as well as ability to pass light, fluids, sound and air. Perforated stainless steel also includes strong corrosion resistance – perfect for any interior and exterior design. You can find it used in stairs, screens, soundproofing and more.
Perforated mild steel is a sheet of mild steel that has been punched with a pattern. It is intended for exposed or unexposed parts involving bending, moderate drawing or forming and welding. You’ll want to paint or plate this material to prevent a build-up of rust.
Perforated aluminum sheet is not as strong or durable as mild steel or stainless steel, but is almost three times lighter, making it ideal for applications where weight is a top priority. These sheets typically do not require protective coating, but are often anodized to improve color. As the temperature decreases, the corresponding strength of this type of perforated metal sheet increases, without sacrificing ductility.
Metal Supermarkets carries a large inventory of perforated sheet metal, with a broad selection of sizes, gauges and hole types.
