Turning Industrial Metal Into Art
We all know how useful metal is in construction, but could it be the design option your garden has been looking for? With laser cutting technology, large sheets of metal can be turned into garden screens and art that go far beyond what you would typically see in a backyard.
The Benefits of Laser Cut Screening Wall Art
- Accessibility: Improvements in laser technology have made this form of art accessible. You get a high-end designer piece without the price tag.
- Customisation: You get to control the design. You don’t just have to pick from a range of pre-selected designs, it’s entirely up to you. You want your initials on a screen? Go for it.
- Versatility: Your screen can be much more than a standalone piece of art. It can become a green wall or vertical garden, used as a backdrop for a water feature or even used to decorate and fence in pool surrounds.
- Low-Maintenance: Screen walls are basically maintenance free. Metal has become a popular construction material because it is basically unbreakable and doesn’t deteriorate. Just hose it down to remove any debris and enjoy the changes your screen goes through as it ages and weathers.
- Durability: No matter where you position your laser cut screening wall art, you can expect to have it for life.
How to Choose The Perfect Laser Cut Screening Art for Your Property
You need to think carefully before you choose your custom art. Here are some things to keep in mind:
- What purpose will it serve? Obviously, a piece of art for a pool surrounds will be different than something you plan on draping with creepers. Determine the purpose to determine the design.
- What does your property look like? Your metal screen can look traditional or modern. The direction you choose largely depends on the rest of your design. You want your art to suit the overall flow of the landscape, so make sure the design fits your overall vision.
- Privacy? Do you want your screen to shield you from your neighbours? If you do, you need to focus on a more minimalistic design with smaller holes. Of course, if you want privacy and a maximalist design, why not back your screen art with another piece of metal and enjoy the best of both worlds.
- Material? Modern lasers can make short work of most materials. So, it’s a question of cost. Steel is cheapest and most durable, but will rust quickly unless you coat it with a protective coating. Weathering steel is a great option, it is naturally-rusted and more expensive but perfect for gardens. Stainless steel is another slightly more expensive option that is rust free, while aluminium is the most costly while being easy to handle and therefore an excellent option for intricate design pieces.
How to Install Laser Cut Screening Art
Follow this step by step guide to installing your brand new art piece:
- Your panels will come with pre-cut installation holes, as well as tube posts that have been powder coated and cut to size
- You need to ensure that posts are concreted into the ground at a minimum of 400mm depth, to fix on top of concrete use welded baseplates
- The screen comes with an integrated framing system, so you just have to bolt the screen onto the posts or the walled area you want it to sit on. You can even bolt screens to each other to cover a larger area. You can also add runners to make movable screens, which is perfect for pool surrounds and other contexts were customisation is useful
