Perforated metal façade - aesthetic and functional

Façade cladding made of perforated metal fulfils two architectural components at once thanks to a wide range of materials and perforation patterns: Design and function.

Design

Whether eccentrically modern, understatedly cool or discreetly adapted to existing architectural styles - individual design requirements can be realised thanks to a wide range of perforation patterns. From round perforations to slotted perforations, square perforations and special perforations - you determine the perforation pattern of your perforated sheet façade!

Function

Perforated sheets are weather-resistant depending on the base material and post-treatment. They also have a long service life and high strength. This makes perforated sheet metal façades a stable and stylish building element that can withstand external influences such as weathering and extreme wind loads. Sound insulation is also often a façade issue: Perforated sheet is both a support and an attractive cover for insulation material. What should your perforated sheet metal façade look like?

We manufacture the perforated sheet

for your project

Modern architecture is looking for a way to combine aesthetics and functionality. The perforated sheet metal façade is a combination of innovative design and technical expertise. SCHÄFER Perforated Metal works with you to develop customised solutions for your projects.

Perforated sheets that meet the individual requirements of a project make it unique. With us, you can create perforated sheet metal façades that are visually impressive. If you want, you can also choose from a variety of perforation patterns. This allows functional aspects such as light transmission and air circulation to be designed in an aesthetically pleasing way.

The right component

for your perforated sheet metal façade

The sheet metal from SCHÄFER Perforated Metal is of a high quality. The choice of materials includes steel, stainless steel and aluminium, with each material subject to strict quality controls.

Our components are not only durable and resistant to weather influences, but also offer a variety of design options to meet the aesthetic requirements of any architectural project.

Choosing the right material for your perforated sheet metal façade is crucial. Each material has its own advantages that make it ideal for different applications.

Design and functionality combined

Perforated sheet metal façades made from SCHÄFER Perforated Metal components are renowned for their aesthetic appeal and versatility of application. The façades fulfil useful functions such as sun and privacy protection, and can contribute to a higher level of energy efficiency in the building. 

They can also create various light and shadow effects, and give buildings a dynamic and lively appearance. They also offer excellent sound insulation and are therefore ideal for urban environments. They are also suitable for balcony railings, which offers architects, planners and construction companies more design options.
