We were thrilled to be a part of Jordon Scott’s recent piece for USGlass Magazine on “Considerations for Perforated Metal Applications.”

In addition to featuring the comments of our very own Business Development Manager Scott Hollingsworth, the article showcased two of CSM’s perforated metal projects: the panels at the Point Loma Nazarene University Math and Science Building, and the Center Street Parking Garage in Berkeley.

Focused on the increasing demand for perforated metal applications nationwide, the piece highlighted the many attractions perforated metal has for architects — from sun shading, to adding aesthetic elements on otherwise easy-to-overlook applications such as parking garages.

The article outlined the different uses of aluminum and steel (such as stressing the use of aluminum for exterior applications featuring perforations), and also offered several key considerations that architects should keep in mind when specifying perforated metal — from the proportional size of the open areas, to installation concerns.
