  • When designing an intake system, the water intake screen is a critical element to a well-designed system. The entire water intake system is dependent on the functionality of the water intake screen in order to work correctly. If the screen is designed properly, it leads to an efficient system that will reduce maintenance costs over the system’s lifespan. However, cost savings isn’t the only consideration to a good design.
  • Filtration and separation technologies are critical to many applications that cover a broad cross-section of consumer and industrial products. Whether it’s a heat-sensitive computer that depends on air circulation to keep it operating, a durable method of separating particles within the mining industry, or an effective method of filtering out mash during craft beer production, there are literally millions of uses for filtration and separation that touch our day-to-day lives.

  • When architects first started designing parking garages, many looked like big concrete boxes. Over the years, and as design styles evolved, many communities decided that while they needed parking garages, they didn’t necessarily want the buildings to look like a parking garage. Architects turned to perforated metal to disguise parking garages and create a facility with a unique and dynamic aesthetic.
  • Perforated metal offers architects many options and benefits as a sunshade. The hole size and pattern can change how much light is let through, and how much can be seen through the design element. With the option of being used in both horizontal and vertical formats, or as a screenwall, perforated metal sunshades provide a unique look for buildings and parking garages.
  • Perforated metal's amazing versatility is the reason it's used in industries worldwide. Made from a variety of materials, it offers unique opportunities to combine strength, functionality and decorative aesthetics.
  • When buying perforated material, there are a numerous variety of hole sizes, shapes, materials and gauges to specify. These factors can affect the production process, quality, cost and lead-time of the finished product. Make sure you get the right product for your application with these eight important tips.
