Perforated metal sheets can be punctured or punched with a pattern of holes or openings featuring almost any design. The holes can vary in size, shape, and spacing to suit the design objective using materials like steel, aluminium, stainless steel, and other metals. 

In recent years ‘Pic Perf’ applications, or perforated metal applications, have become increasingly popular in various fields thanks to their aesthetic appeal and functional benefits.

Some of the most popular pic perf applications include:

Architectural Facades

Pic perf applications are perfect for creating visually appealing yet functional exterior facades for buildings. They can be designed to a specific brief using cladding materials to create stunning and unique exteriors with intricate patterns and shapes. 

Pic perf applications can also be used to improve ventilation, create shade in areas whilst still allowing natural light to filter through, and of course provide privacy. 

Interior Design

Many interior designers are now turning to pic perf applications to create decorative room dividers and partitions using bespoke designs to create both a visual feature and functional separation. Perforated metal panels are perfect for dividing a space as they can be designed in any shape or height. They also take up less space than stud walls etc. 

Pic perf applications are also popular amongst interior designers for use on ceilings and wall coverings, not only to enhance the design of a space, but also to improve acoustics as they can control sound reflection.


Perforated metal sheets or pic perf applications can be used by artists to create detailed sculptures and artworks that create interesting patterns and shadow effects bringing artwork to life.

Pic perf applications can be used in mixed media art with elements such as wood, paint, and lighting effects to create depth and visual interest.

Furniture Design And Lighting Fixtures

For modern or industrial-designed furniture, many are now turning to pic perf applications to create furniture such as chairs, tables, cabinets, shelves etc. Perforated metal allows for a more creative design to meet the aesthetic needs and objectives of a more modern era.

Another great way to modernise any room is through the use of pic perf applications in lampshades and light fixtures. The light can shine through the perforations, creating unique patterns and focal points – whilst still maintaining functionality.

Retail And Commercial Spaces

Perforated metal is often used in commercial and retail spaces to create unique storage displays, kiosks, and of course signage or logos

Their customisable and eye-catching designs can be visually striking yet provide practical storage solutions in spaces where practicality is key.

Industrial Applications

Pic perf applications have been commonly used in industrial applications for a number of years and for a number of products. This includes safety guards to protect workers from potentially dangerous machinery and equipment. Using pic perf, the holes can be strategically designed to offer protection whilst not affecting functionality. 

They are also used for machine enclosures to control noise and debris created by machinery. Pic perf applications can be commonly used in air filtration systems to create filter housing screens to allow the systems to remove dust, pollutants, and contaminants in the air. 

A breakdown of these applications include:

  • Safety barriers and partitions
  • Staircase treads and walkways
  • Material handling and conveying
  • Acoustic barriers
