A brief history of perforated metal.
The history of perforated metal spans several millennia. Its usage has varied from decorative to functional — very often at the same time. It has appeared in many cultures and for many purposes throughout time, from ancient arts and crafts, to warfare technology, to industrial filtration and sorting mechanisms. Today, perforated metal has returned as a highly decorative and expressive artistic medium.Note: In 2017, Zahner introduced a new system for designing and procuring custom picture perforated imagery.
