Perforated panel 40

Type AP 40

Looking for a versatile product to suit your application. Our Perforated panel, also known as perfo or perfo planks, can be used almost anywhere due to its simplicity. The range of applications including stair cases, access platforms and walkways, step overs and wall partitions are all examples of this products versatility. The AP40 punched hole design provides anti slip, excellent drainage and reduced transparency. The folded design of the plank creates a safe, strong and stable platform to inspire your design. In addition to horizontal applications, the panels can also be used vertically as wall cladding or enclosures for Stores & compounds such as bike or HVAC. 

Perforated panel Type AP 40 is suited for use in areas where a heelproof option is not required (see our AP30). It offers a tighter and more open punched plank over the AP50 which allows for faster drainage or greater airflow.  

Our coil based and bespoke manufacture flexibility inspires you to optimize your design.  Allowing our customers to engineer the most sustainable product by creating very little or no scrap in its production, see our calculation tool or ask our sales department.
