3 Factors To Consider While Installing A Decorative Metal Screen

3 Factors To Consider While Installing A Decorative Metal Screen

A decorative metal screen, made of perforated metal panels, can be aesthetically pleasing, irrespective of its purpose. Furthermore, due to its design, it promises durability and corrosion resistance, ensuring the screen lasts for decades. However, there are a few factors to consider before installing a decorative metal screen for a particular project. 3 such factors will be addressed in this blog.


How To Select A Decorative Metal Screen?


Scale Of The Installation

The first thing to consider is the scale of the metal screen. Is it a privacy screen installed in the garden, or perhaps something featured on the facade of a building? Depending on the viewing distance, that is the distance at which the viewer can observe the screen, the scale can be altered significantly. For instance, for an office screen or garden screen, designs take a life-size scale. Alternatively, for designs that are required to be observed from long distances, the scale increases significantly.


Open Area

The open area is defined as the area of the decorative metal screen that is removed to create the final product. As is evident, this will be heavily dependent on the application of the screen. For instance, if privacy is the most important application of a screen, then its open area should be limited.


Colour And Material

Lastly, the colour and material of the metal screen should also be determined. Depending on its location, the architectural style and even how many footfalls, the colour and material can change. For instance, if weathered steel is paired with white tiles, then it can create a disaster, as the rusted patina of the screen will leach onto the tiles over time. 


Therefore, by taking these factors into consideration, a decorative metal screen can be installed successfully for any given application.
