PAC-CLAD Perforated Aluminum Panels: Architectural Flair with Practical Applications

Perforated metal panels create a myriad of effects: adding visual texture to a sidewalk screen, transforming a parking garage screen into art, overlaying a super graphic or simply screening unsightly equipment. It’s a material that inspires creativity.

PAC-CLAD | Petersen offers perforation of select PAC-CLAD aluminum wall panels and flat sheet. Perforated metal can provide a contrasting look with solid metal to create visual interest on any project. Architects can specify perforated metal to diffuse light, air or sound, or simply for architectural flair. Typical applications include equipment screens, partitions, sign panels, parking decks, guards, interior acoustical applications and enclosures of any kind.

Perforation is available in a nearly endless combination of hole sizes, spacing and open space percentages to complement virtually any architectural design or need. Perforation options will vary by panel profile and metal thickness; consult factory for details.
