Types Of Commercial Decorative Screens:

Decorative screens for commercial use are available in many forms. There is a screen to suit every application. At Urban Metal, we concentrate on our area of expertise – laser cut decorative metal screens, a perfect blend of design and technology with features to ensure longevity under Australian conditions. The benefit of laser cutting means that it gives a clean and detailed finish with minimal wastage. It also allows for our designs to be intricately designed and in many instances, the laser cut material makes the perfect base of the inclusion of colour.

The many choices available when it comes to choosing which decorative screening option is right for you means this process can be overwhelming. Powder coated aluminium screens are great for gardens, fences, courtyards and outdoor dining areas. They are also the perfect choice for creating private spaces in pool areas or for blocking the view of neighbours. They are light weight, easy to install, long lasting and require very minimal maintenance. Weathering steel, a popular choice due to the variances in colour, strength and no maintenance required look fabulous, however the rusted patina means that they are not suitable for all applications. Likewise for stainless steel. Available in two finishes, brushed satin or mirrored, they are an incredibly stylish choice, however they do require a certain amount of maintenance in comparison to other materials.

Decorative Commercial Screen Designs

At Urban Metal Decorative screening we thrive on challenging creativity and what is expected when designing for a space. We don’t like cookie-cutter, done before techniques, and when designing specifically for commercial screening there are many additional factors which require important consideration. Hole sizes (not penetrable by small fingers) and climb ability, open area percentages. We challenge you to think outside-the-box. We can customize the commercial screens, depending on your design ideas, budget, placement choices, requirements and choice of material. Will your commercial decorative screens become the focal point to enhance and elevate the aesthetics or do you require an outdoor screen which blends in and becomes a functional, yet less obvious, addition to the environment. How much privacy is required and is this a consideration for your Urban Metal Commercial Screen? Do you need almost commercial screen or would you like more open area so that the screen is not to enclosed and allows the breeze to flow through, however also creates enough of a distraction to become a feature or statement piece. Whatever your requirements, we collaborate and work with you to ensure that the screening solution we provide goes above and beyond your expectations.

Cleaning & Maintenance

To ensure your newly installed Urban Metal Decorative Screen is long-lasting and looking beautiful for years to come, it is important to understand the maintenance requirements.

Stainless Steel: A speciality finish which does require a certain amount of maintenance. As to the frequency, most suppliers would agree that stainless steel should be cleaned on an “as needed” basis. Regardless of the grade of material, all stainless steel can be prone to ‘tea staining’. Stainless Steel should be kept clean and free of dirt and grime to ensure its natural and original appearance.

Weathering Steel: A high strength steel which develops a protective rusted ‘patina’ which inhibits further corrosion. Originally designed for architectural use on bridge construction and shipping containers, weathering steel has been known to achieve a 100+ year life span.

Powder Coated Aluminium or Steel: For the majority of our powder coated panels, the brand we choose to use is DULUX. They recommend that a simple, regular maintenance program should be implemented. The effects of ultra violet light, atmospheric pollution, dirt grime and airborne salt deposits can all accurate over time and should be removed at regular intervals. As a general rule, cleaning should take place every three months. For additional tips to maintaining your powder coated products, please click here.
