Perforated Metals for Sports Architecture

May. 13, 2022

Perforated metal has become the star of the sports architecture scene, with more and more companies incorporating perforated metal into their material line-ups. But why?

Today's sports centers are exciting, inspiring and ambitious places. Architects are challenged to create sites that deliver design and experience both on and off the field and meet budget goals. This is where perforated metal proves itself to be an essential toolkit for the development of sports complexes in the public and private sectors.


Sports Architecture Project Concepts

We work closely with the architects of each project to understand development details, goals and requirements prior to production, including site architecture, light, privacy and spatial flow.

Perforated Metal in Sports Architecture

Some of the biggest reasons perforated metal continues to be popular in sports center design is its strength and adaptability.

Because it can be custom fabricated to meet all budgetary, performance and aesthetic needs, it is a material that can be used in virtually every aspect of sports architecture, from load-bearing fixtures to decorative interior applications.

Perforated metal is commonly used in stadiums and sports centers around the world for:

Spectator screens, barriers, balconies and staircases

Perforated metal can be specified to meet all the necessary strength and load-bearing requirements for spectator safety.


As an easy-to-clean material, perforated metal is ideal for high-touch points of use where strict Covid 19 cleaning regimes are required.


Perforated metal can be custom designed to create an eye-catching and unique building facade that meets the architect's vision, development purpose and appeal.


The architects also used perforated metal as a sustainable material for building ventilation and cooling, consistent with the environmental goals of the project.
