Metal Perforation Becoming More Than Just an Aesthetic Fix

MarketScale’s recent visit with the attendees at AIA yielded some interesting information about various innovations in the architectural industry. We chatted with Damon Henrikson, Director of Marketing for Accurate Perforating, who offered insight about his company and their perforated metal projects.

Henrikson explained that metal allows fabricators the ability to customize products, due to its versatility. Metal is also durable and sustainable, especially aluminum with its lightweight strength with fewer oxidation issues than other metals. End users for Accurate Perforating tend to be diverse: from high value residential to museums and health care.

According to Henrikson, it’s impossible to measure which kinds of projects are more challenging than others; in his industry, every building is unique, and that’s what his company is set up for. Installers aim to work with those individual structures and meet the distinct challenges of each consumer. Each product is designed and manufactured with a specific space in mind, so they have the ability to customize and meet the needs of each client. In addition, he feels that redesigns are particularly rewarding because they offer the opportunity to really change the presence of a space.

Perforated metal is great for transitioning structures and disguising unpleasant aspects of a building as well. Their materials are often incorporated to solve an issue, like too much sun or wind, too much or not enough noise, and other concerns. Perforated metal is excellent for privacy adjustments, in particular, because the material can change a space to allow the user to see what he or she wants to see and can be altered to a high degree of specificity.

This, says Henrikson, is what makes working with in this field most exciting—the versatility of the material and its ability to transform a space in a distinct manner.
