Perforated Plastic Basics
Some applications could benefit from the features of perforated metal, but various circumstances require you to use nonmetal options — whether it's the environment or weight capacity. Perforated plastic sheet is an excellent option for applications that require a lighter-weight material. Accurate Perforating creates the highest-quality perforated plastic panels ideal for incorporation into your building design.
Perforated plastic is used much like its metal counterpart. It is made via a pressing process that creates panels in varying thickness and perforation styles. The end product is a perforated panel that, at a glance, is identical to a perforated metal panel.
Characteristics of Perforated Plastic
- Light weight makes it easier to install and puts less strain on the rest of the design
- Less able to bear weight than comparable metal products
- Less expensive so it's ideal for tighter budgets
- Chemical resistance makes it perfect for some harsh environments such as factories and storage that contains corrosive chemicals
- Corrosion-resistant plastic will not rust or corrode
Perforated Plastic Applications
- Machinery and filtration
- Improving ventilation and enhancing airflow
- Cooling a building; plastic panels allow airflow while not getting hot themselves from sunlight
- Controlling natural light
- Customized perforated plastic as an impressive visual element to any design
